Kyosho has 3 flying weight as well. But is more FW better? I know someone encountered a problem of the clutch engaged when pulling throttle but never lose back so the engine died when entering the corner.

For the Serpent CC, since it has 2 springs - one for pushing and one for pulling, the above problem will never happen. Indeed, I believe that Serpent should be one of the best designs.

What weight of diff oil are you guys running on high-bite asphalt with foams?

Have you found any other springs that seem to work on these shocks? I would like to have more than three tensions. AE springs seem to be a little small, and Losi springs are too long....too much pre-load with the collar at the very top.

That is all for now.... : )

Has anyone cut the clutch that comes with the kit to tune it? Is it worth it? I did it with the HPI clutch, the MIP one.... Worked nice...

Nitro Dave you cannot use the standard shaft with the centax. However Sparksey has a Ofna standard shaft centax which you could use.

You don't cut the clutches that come with the kit... drilling a couple of holes is a popular choice but if you really want the punch, changing to a stiffer spring might help...

No wonder... the Kyosho LSD is not very much different from the appearence other than the floating blocks... Don't quote me but I think the material used for the bevels could be inconel... other than that, given the density and price, I could not think of other materials that could withstand the wear!
By the way White Cat...you have the 1/5th site for reference?

The foam setup from Kyosho calls for using the lower bottom shock mounting hole. The rubber calls for using the top. What would be the effect of changing the top to the bottom or vice versa??

Hey Manti...are the floating blocks suppose to be free to slode up and down the shaft or is it suppose to be tight on the case... Mine seems rather tight and it makes no sense at all! Made any modifications to ur casing?
Anyone too?
