Sorry bro i tried that and it seems that in the lighter tranny the teeth have a different set up, you wont be able to use the stock pinions on the LW tranny. To save you some bucks $$$$ go ahead and get the LW tranny and try it as it comes the ratio is better and you will get a bit more top end. I believe that stock it uses 60T-54T spurs and 29T-22T pinions. They work awesome...

BTW at the end of the thread I was talking about the LW 2 speed... just to clarify lol... Also if you can get the Lighter shafts, they work great with the LW tranny....

I'm assuming this is what you meant by module 1.0
Metric Module is an engineering term which defines the ratio of teeth to diameter in millimetres. The 0.8 module gears from HPI are close to the 0.8 ratio, but not totally spot on. By altering the module to keep the OD of the pinion the same and reshaping the teeth of the pinion HPI allows all combinations to work.

By definition 1.0 module gears will not mesh with 0.8 module gears.

I was setting up my new starter box last night for about 45 minutes and couldn't quite get the flywheel and bump wheel to line up. I was taping off dimensions trying to pinpoint a location. Well just when I decided to quit because of frustration the LAST position I left the car (by accident) was the perfect location. It was crazy, thought I'd share.

Hhaha yeah no one tells you about that little problem. Once you get the spot remember it with cue points. I look for these two bolts that my chassis sticks in between. You can also just place it in the center and try moving around the rubber wheel to get it in place with your fly.

I also have my starter box setup without any pins since the wheel doesnt seem able to get all the way up to the engine.

Use the pegs that come with your starter box. That will help you get things started up a lot better than having to line it up all the time.

Klander- Gonna to do some high speed runs soon with the R40.

Oh try them on the side of the chassis? I was thinking about that. Is that what they are supposed to do. Cause at first I was setting the chassis on top of them.

The pegs aren't suppose to sit under the chassis. I thought so also as no one ever explained about them. . They sit around the chassis or arms. Just line the car up on the box first and see where the wheel hits the flywheel. Mark the spots where u see the pegs can go to hold the car in it's place. Then install the. BRB I'll take some pics.

Default Clutch questions

Hi all,

need a few pointers on setting up the clutch:

I have an NSR 12 s3, and it already has a cone retainer in front of the engine bearing, do I need to take it off and insert the black 0.8m shim behind it?

does anyboby run this engine on their r40? I don't have digital calipers so perhaps someone can give me their setup for shimming this particular engine

Reading the previous threads on this issue I understand its best not to use the O spring, apart from that I will start by using the stock (2004) clutch shoes etc...

Thanks!

I'm sure that you do need to use the spring...

No! That was a question I asked since the spring failed when I was trying to install it. For the clutch to work properly the spring has to be added.
