First - go to the stock 9deg caster (I never touch this. . .try to work around it)

then I would try these (one at a time, see how each works)

Lower your RH a mil in the front
go to +1 degree on toe
drop the sway bar
go one step softer on front springs

Just some ideas.
GREAT! i'll try this weekend, many thanks!

Sorry, Th was bad for me - I had a visitor from Australia that I had to give a tour through my labs and give an orientation on the status of our Academic Computing facilities. . .whew what a pain. Nice guy, but that sucked up most of my day.

Default shoes cutting into flywheel

has anyone seen this on a Ntc3, the stocks shoes cutting grooves into the flywheel. which is not letting the clutch engage? When I would give my car gas, sometimes the car would not move, I tried to change the two-speed one-way bearing. However the problem reoccured. So finally I took a cut-off wheel for my good-ole dremel, and sanded down the grooves a bit for a temp fix, until I can get to the hobby shop. I will try to get some pics up here soon.

thanks Jason

Another quick fix for that problem is to put a small washer between the flywheel and the shoes.

I haven't been on in a while. Need a new pc and they locked out this forum at work . I have 2 engines. One of them I use the crazy nut shoes, and after each day out, I dremel everything down. Even the shoes need some dremeling. With the stock shoes, you can get away alot longer without dremeling. I have yet to find a shim the right size to put between them and the flywheel. I wouldn't want to put something too loose in there.

Has anyone got the 3Racing 4mm chassis, it looks to me as one of the nicest chassis on the market, please do not answer that the BMI is the best, that is not the question, I just would like to read comments on the 3Racing chassis from people that got one.
Thanks

jscamry: The flywheel does not have a hardened surface. If you can get your hands on the K-factory 3 shoe clutch system, it comes with a hardened flywheel. Ae should make a hardened flywheel to cure this problem, but as of now they don't.

I use the K centax and lost 2 thrust brgs this season. I tried shimming it on the loose spec and the tight spec, still had failures. What really sucks is that you can buy the complete clutch setup through alot of places. But theres no parts support of the K parts, only through Trinity at full retail price.
I'm using a special thrust brg we've come up with that seems to last very well.

Theres the addy for part #'s. The clutch comes in a kit, and is very hard to get your hands on, unless you order direct from HK. Trinity had a few of them last summer and I manage to get one.

I use the Mugen thrust bearings for my KFacCentax and they work well.

Crashed : Thanks! I'm using a special aftermarket brg that seems to work ok. Do you know of any other parts that will interchange? Here, it's cheaper to buy another clutch, than buy the parts from Trinity.

Ummm..you guys should've already found out abt the gear meshing problems with KFac Pinions right? ie: no 6 tooth jump. Well, I'm currently using a 20pinion from KFac for the G4 with 27 pinion(NTC3) to mesh them up properly and it works.20/27pinions with 48/54spurs.
