That color combo really stands out - nice!

hes even got a big scar when they were heating up the landing gear axle(part of the process even saw how they do it on the science channel ). That musta hurt ... When he made machined moldings he really never actually molded something out of htem yet(guess he wants to be an inventor but he is too busy).Anyways, Gonna get the mugen 2 speed shoes anyway and try it hope fully they wont be as brittle as the stock r40 ones...Cant wait to get a magnesium chassi for the r40...that'll be a first.

Just assembled the centax. I had to remove some material as well from the mugen grey clutch, near the insides of the holes. After that it moved much more smoothly.

After assembley I noticed overall everything seemed to be somewhat thicker making me need to use less shims. I guess thats a given since its brand new disc vs used or maybe the mugen is just thicker?

Then after giving the gears a spin I hear an odd scratching noise when I point the screw down towards the ground. As well sometimes when just spinning upright.

Heres the video:

I tried a different thrust bearing, still was there. Everything is brand new otherwise. One thing I did notice is the crankshaft does not come through as far, its not enough to past the outer flange bearing. Normally it would stick out a little.

AI I'm not 100% but it just may be that the clutch shoe has a few high spots. after watching the vid it's the first thing that comes to mind. anyone else got any idea?

Yeah thats what I thought. But at first I had a lot more space, as I was using one less washer and it would still do it pretty much the same way , now its even closer and sounds the same.

Im pretty sure the sound is coming from inside the area where the thrust bearing is...but its not that so im kinda baffled cause not much else should be rubbing? Maybe Ill start swapping around the bearings.

From the video it seems fairly normal. I assume the bearings are new and the thrust bearing is as well?

Did you tap all 4 pins into the flywheel before assembling? They are often uneven from the factory. I use some loctite press fit on mine, I tap all 4 out first then reassemble it.

Do you use inner shims to stop the clutchbell rubbing on the clutch shoes?

Yup all brand new and I swapped in my old tb and still the same sound. Its louder in person.

I shaved them down and flat sanded them on the ground to make them somewhat clean and even.

LOL, not such a great cam and its weird lighting in here along with the computer screen throwing blue on me. I turned on all the lights around me to make it easy to see, so it looks like im glowing white.

But yeah Iam kinda light, especially under my arm and biceps. The only tan I get is my farmers tan from rc racing.

Iam basically just like kenshin in my avatar light skin and I do have some red in my hair. Except you can only see it in certain light , otherwise I have brown hair.
