currently I have to give the car alot of gas for it to move..
It's the other way around. You need to loosen the spring pre-tension nut to get it to engage early.

If you have to give a lot of gas to get the clutch to engage, then making the distance to 1.5 mm would be worse off.

Of course, the tighter the spring, the harder the clutch shoe engages onto the clutchbell but there is of course a limit to this. The adverse effects when the clutch spring set too tight would be the clutch slipping and too high engage point.

For high traction tracks, I would go with red. Else, stick with the stock. Well, you could try it if you want and see if you like the way the car handles.

Any car when the Centax clutch not set correct would have problems. Any car when the thrust bearing of the Centax clutch not set correct would blow out.

BTW, it also depends from one engine to another and the pipe / manifold combo. This is why the 1.0 mm setting in the manual is just a starting point for you to tune and it is not the be-all-and-end-all setting.

Don't get me wrong... You can still use the harder silver spring. You just probably need to loosen the Centax pre-tension nut more. I know Julius uses the harder Centax spring...

Why do you want to get it online when you can get it cheaper at your LHS?

Just get the LHS to open the box for you and you can check to see if the shock tower is already updated !

There was some talk some time back regarding difficulty to even access the 2 speed screws externally. Your idea will come in handy on my next mod adventures.

That's a very generic question ! It's almost the same as asking how rich I can get !
