)" Pull your engine out and adjust clutch nut so that 1 - 2 threads of the crank shaft are visible beyond the nut (assuming you assembled things correctly). Assemble bearings and clutch bell. Start with 2 silver shims and one copper shim. (silver shims are thicker than copper). The shims you add must stay on the screw collar when you tighten down the clutch bell screw, otherwise this will bind the clutch bell.

When installing the clutch end screw, I usually hold the engine with the clutch bell on in one hand pointing the crankshaft down towards the ground and with my other hand I use the allen driver to insert the shaft screw upwards (screw is mounted on the allen driver). This way the shims seem to stay on the collar while you are tightening the shaft screw.

Now spin the clutch bell and verify it freely spins (no drag) and you have 1- 1.5mm of end play. Add/remove shims to acheive this.

(2) with the engine out - verify drive train freely spins by grabbing both rear tires simultaneously and spin them.

(3) Make sure you have the engine idle screw set properly as well as this limits the amount the slide carberator will shut. When you have the engine installed and servos operating, give the car full brakes ( engine not running ). Look into the carb and verify that the carb opening is about 1/16th - 1/8th inch from closed position.

Now maybe you can give us more information after you tried this.

Good luck!"

the last paragraph of #1 i've done repeatedly, and it spins freely but when i screw it in theres no play at all but it still spins fine..............should i or rather does it make any sense to back out the shaft screw??

end play should be checked after you tigthen the screw as you have done. OK try this, pull out one silver shim and replace it with a copper one. Tighten the screw and re-check.

Don't loosen the screw - that will be a disaster. in the end you will need some slight end play "after" the screw is tightened.

Klander- Kewl man. I'll try to get vids also when my friend and I get together again.

Jag-THNX SO much for the charging tip. It finished around 2am and when it was in my box it was REALLY strong! Gonna try to break that monster in today. I'd really love to see it run.

To all-Anyone also removed the RX box on their ride? I noticed my connector from the ON/OFF switch is a bit short so the RX has to be to closer to the opening. I'm gonna try to get rid of it and see how it does. I only fear it getting messy or stripped wires, but that's nothing a good balloon can't fix. Also hows this for a mod. Instead of removing the whole rx box, cut out the inner portion and use double sided tape to keep it inside the box. This will allow the wires to not get scrunched up.

mmm that sounds ok, give a try and see if the wires don't look n trouble of getting scrunched or cut by the side belt. I thought about getting rid of the box also and put the receiver on top of the graphite deck, in front of hte gas tank or maybe slightly to the right side, but what about weight distribution??? I guess it might works, but surely I don't know how it's going to handle.

P.S. Hark- check your Gmail ok

That's true. I was more concern of the weight being thrown off. I'll check my gmail right now.
