Hey, fifth is alright. If we got fifth, consistantly, I'd be happy - we would have been 7th or 8th today. And if it's any consolation, my driver has just been through a long doldrums period. He seems to have come out of it as misteriously as he went in.


Our day . . . not good.
Spent Saturday evening replacing pulleys/belts and rebuilding the rear diff.
Well, I should have checked the diff output cups, shouldn't I.
At the track, the rear end was bouncing around all over the shop due to the notched output cups. My temporary remedy was to but some fuel tube into the cups to keep the doggies out of the notch's. It sorta worked but the diff pulley parted company from the diff at the 17 minute mark of a 30 minute final. - I had the larger screws in too.
The printer was playing up so I have no idea of times etc. - not that ours would have been impressive.

Now the UP side.
Those SP belts really are smooth. The car has noticeably better free roll, and it was pretty good before. It might get even better with a few more runs - I like 'em.
Main experiment for the day was the overdrive stuff. We were running faily soft tyres 37/37 and while tyre wear was a bit high, the relative front to rear wear was pretty good. After 3 x 5 minute heats and all the practice & warm-ups etc., the 4mm split was down to a 3mm split - not bad, I thought.
For a 30 minute final we should have gone to 40/40 but since I figured we could control the wear, we decided to put up with the extra grip and just changed the rears for some correct sized 37's.
Diff's eh . . . bugger.

This improved tyre wear has me thinking about that solid rear again, though.

Gawd . . you didn't have an ergonomic, eye-safe amber one, then?
Gee the crap they used to spin over amber screens was close to criminal.
Then again, 640K was also supposed to be enough for anyone, acording to Bill.

Default 3D and 4D Clutches

Hi Guys,

The 3D clutch is pretty good as long as you use the hard spring wound in to somewhere between 2.2 to 2.3 mm. Most of the times i use the std shoe however in high traction the red shoe seems to be the go.

The new 4D clutch is pretty much the same as the Mugen one. One main difference with the new clutch is the spring is longer than the one used in the 3D unit so make sure you dont mix them up as time goes by. Everything else is the same but turf the clutch shoe that comes with it and get the grey and red option ones.

Regards

Kyle

Default 3D or 4D (Not a bra size)

Now about this 4D clutch question . . .
The Kyosho Japan site talks about the EVO having a 3D clutch.
I'm sure I read somewhere about it coming with the 4D clutch, didn't I?
What gives?

Your right, I should have twigged to that bouncing earlier - you and I even talked about it. It got a lot worse last Sunday

You mean you were running the RR with a front diff.
I've only heard good things about the TCD, but will try the Negative out first, since we have the bits - need the special Kawahara diff shafts.
Who does Kawahara spares in Australia?

OZDC was talking about a solid front axle - he says "unbelieveable under brakes"

That'd be right . . the 4D clutch will be held in reserve by the Kyosho bean counters forward profit estimates comittee, to be released in six months time as the "Team" 4D clutch, represented by another teat on the V-one cash cow. . . . . just keeping the bra theme going.

It's dead in the ozzie one too . Hopefully me and gav will be ordering our evo's but i think that the FW05R might be a decent car aswell. I'm also still not sure what adds all this extra weight to the evo to pump it up to 1900g's.
