I have'nt tried the 3 shoe clutch setup yet. Barry Baker said it was'nt that much difference from 3 shoe or 2 shoe. You might want to drill 2, 1/16 holes in each of the clutch shoes in the thickset part of the shoe. It gives the car alot more rpm's, you will notice a big difference!!

Ernest, sorry no pics. Just take the clutch shoes off and on the side of the shoes drill 2, 1/16th holes clear through the shoe, measure the shoes if you want for length, I put 1 hole dead center of the shoe and then the other hole split the difference between the first hole and the end of the shoe for the other hole. Anywhere from the center of the shoe to the outside of the shoe should work. All your trying to do is lighten the shoe on the outside, so it will take more rpm to make the shoe make contact with the clutchbell. It is the same thing as using a heavier clutch spring or shorter clutch shoes. You could also cut some of the outside edge off the shoes and do the same thing. I never do that though because you cut to much off and you junked the shoes, by drilling the holes if you go to much you can always fill the hole with something like epoxy or even a alum or steel pin to make up the difference. Hope this helps!

I had one of my local hobby shops call Great Planes to order one of the titanium Chassis's but the lady at Great Planes said that they are not in the database for shipment for yet. One things for sure, the titanium chassis is gonna stiffen the car up at least 20%. Carpet nitro racers, get ready to fall in love-hehe!

I'm new to nitro but not electric. I've been racing electric touring cars now for 5 years and was wondering if the Mega engines by Serpent were any good? Comments welcomed.

Someone had mentioned on oneof these forums that the HUDY set-up hits the rear toe links on the nitro.....Also,be aware that the axles on the tc3 are 8-32nd,you might have to drill the hole on the set-up plates,as the axles won't go through...I know,I have it....And I thing drilling the holes renders it useless for the std 4mm axles on my Serpent,Kyosho's and HPI's.......

I had to do the same(open up the holes) I had the same problem with the rear toe links. I think it will work but its not the best set up.Any thoughts on "notching" the hudy where the link hits it?
