Hi, has anyone tried using the MUGEN CLUTCH set for the 1/8 scale on a GRP BOSS M.R.T enigne?

I am having a problem with using the clutch set on this enigne. I would need to shim out more than 1mm behind the flywheel cone before I can use the flywheel nut that comes with the clutch set to tighten the flywheel.

You can also try to shave off from the top of the collet (cone) with a dremmel if you don't have any shorter collets

I take it this is ROAR legal??? I know that recent Sirio 2611 with the same short stinger slightly angled forward was not legal. This has a new EFRA number so I am guessing it's good to go???

George and Tommy,

Got my Capricorn CL-12ET broken in this last weekend and have it standing behind a new Capricorn power clutch setup with the yellow high grip shoe. I think I have the clutch setup okay but not quite sure. Any advise? I did end up putting 2 grub screws in each weight before I felt it was aggressive enough for my driving. Please let me know any setup tips you may have???

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Regards,
Speyederjedi

So far I felt that you don't have to crank the spring down very much to get it aggressive I have both weights in each shoe as well & started off at 1.2 sprinng tension which was way to much .50-.80 seems to be the ticket
