If you plan to race race car, it may be a good thing to have. I'd try the stock clutch first unless you just like spending money. The centax allows you greater control over when it engages than a typical spring controlled clutch because you can vary the amount of spring tension by simply tightening down the spring. It's a lot more work, though because you need to re-lube the thrust bearing and clean out the clutch shoes after each run to keep it in the best working order. If you're just bashing, stick with the stock clutch. You'll be happier and so will your wallet.

Hi guys,

after looking at their ad in the new RC-Car with all the Kawahara stuff and Zac tires, I tried to get to RC Imports Homepage
to check the stuff out, but I only get to their index page.
From there on I get "page cannot be found" messages.
Is this my PC or is the site screwed?

BTW, they also have the new Collari XS 12 engine.

Please try to get there and let me know how far you get.
Thx,

I have a big problem with my MTX, and I can't seem to solve it. I cannot drive the car at full speed. Once I start leaning on the throttle just a little bit, the intire car veers to the left. I checked all the suspension setting, and all the shock preloads are equal, the camber,caster, and toe are all equal. I dont understand why it is doing this. Help me out!!

Ah10 has this problem before and according to AH10, it is due to the excessive wear of rear diff bevel gears at one side. Check your rear diff and see if this is the case.

Wheel spacers are a good hop up, it will allow you to run 26,28,mm Foam tires in front and 32mm foams in the rear without modifications.
