I can't seem to clear the carb.. Am thinking the only way is to shave the tank in order for the carb to be fully open.

Any ideas?
I have a sirio XXX and it was a really tight fit as well. I ended up having to use my dremel and barely grind down a fin from the motor so I could turn the carb more to the right. I can take a picture when i get home if you need.

Can anyone tell me off the top of their head, or measure if you have one handy, the thickness of any of the Mugen clutch springs?, I'm trying to see if I can find an off the shelf spring from something with a thinner and hence softer spring.

I know that the height of a new spring is 10.0 mm tall not sure about the actual width until i get home...

I figure you should just set it the same as the gold and see how it works. I also have been thinking about running the harder spring as the gold one just seems to change during the longer mains. It often feels like the clutch nut backs out but after measuring it doesn't move at all.

I usually run 9.3 mm from the end of the crank to the top of the clutch nut when the motor is at BDC at the same point. This is including the .5 mm spacer behind the flywheel and motor. So, I reckon a good starting point would be at 9.0 with the silver mugen clutch spring i'm guessing. I'll try it next weekend and let you know.

just got my MTX5 last month and just finish break in my reds engine. for some how i don't get any problem with gear stripping. i set the sims carefully and engine position correctly. but the problem is not the sims or engine mount. its the break and chassis.

why break and chassis? coz if i adjust the break linkage to much it also pull the engine (the chassis move front and back) I think is causing the gear stripping.
