What have been some of the clutch mods you guys have been doing..

Is anyone running the stock clutch with a nova based engine that feels the clutch is working OK.....

When I say mods,I'm talking about even assembly changes to the the stoch clutch also....(like putting the shims in front of the thrust beaing)...

Also,has anyone noticed that in stock position,the bell does the rub the shoe slightly....when spinning the bell sith the engine on its "back"..?

I have found several things with the clutch.

1. You most likely need to put shims between the inside bearing and the sg nut to keep the bell from rubbing the shoe.

2.Clearance to the chassis cutout for the flywheel, on some of my engines I had to remove the big washer behind the collet other wise the outside of the bell will hit the chassis= slip
This can also happen if the motor is aligned too far to the gear side. I think this has been my problem all along, but in the process I learned the fine points of setting up a Centax.

3. The red clutch shoe as with most cars is better than the slip prone black stuff

If assembled right the clutch is supposed to be great; it's nearly identical to the Mugen's.

You are talking about the MUGEN RED clutch shoes....? Or the one from the ebay...? (I think they are from Delta)

HPI has stated that this version will not be available in the states. If you want one, you have to go online and order it from a southeast asian distributor/store.

You can ask Fast Harry about his 2004 spec information....1 thing for sure, Rcmodel.com.hk listed there is one, but I knew they can only ORDER 1 for you from japan, they don't have any left in stock..

Since FH just got one from Jet Hobby, I am sure they have some instock....you have to buy from them and EMS over to US for you, and if you see his post on the last page, it is around $380 (shipped) and for that price, it is still $80-100 cheaper then upgrade your stock R40 to 2004 spec with lots of un-used stock parts....

Jets Hobby website is....http://www.jethobby.com/
It was listed on their front page.........

Trinity G4..? Why do you want to use those clip onto a G4...? One thing you have to find out for sure, pivot balls looks alike, but not necessary the same diameter..........

R40 clips (they called SPACER) are for the threaded part of the R40 Pivot ball studs.........as long as G4 using the same diameter thread pivot balls, you can use the R40 spacer......

Beside........I don't use those spacer on my R40 pivot balls...those are for default setting use only, if you have a setup system to setup your car, you don't really need that...

Yes, you can buy the clips seperately....HPI#73485
