As for the leaking problem, I'm just using an GS gasket and it seems to work fine. I haven't had any major leaking problems with my TR. Occassionally a little excess, but fore the most part its super clean.

hi i own a mugen centax clutch and i was wondering if the k factory NTC3 30mm push clutch bell would fit on the mugen clutch set instead of buying a whole complete new set.

I have a spare os cvx at hand slide carb, bigger cooling head.
I run a torque pipe shortened manifold 5 os plug.
The track is pretty small has anyone tried the lowest gear set?
Also suggestions engine mods.
Has to be strong and long life!
One guy runs cv hyper with cvec so pretty much anything goes!

Thanks in advance

Terry
Faster is never fast enough...

you could limit end point on the throttle opening.

Is that a lock nut on the shock tower screw? What size? I want to switch to the alumin lock nut because the stock plastic piece can easily be worn out and stripped. After installation of the shock,bushing, nut,etc., there is not enough thread left for the alumin lock nut to "lock". I think the stock screw is 4-40x3/4. I bought some 4-40x1" button head screws. But there's alot of thread left, I'm thinking about dremeling off the excess threads on the screw.
