Additional M3x4 set / grub screws that you thread onto the flyweights to give it more weight = more punch !

Good question ! Well, there's one 2.5 mm hole already int he flyweight. I just take the dremel and drill out another 2.5 mm hole on the other opposite side as what is posted by Pyramid. I would agree that it's not dead accurate but it works...

Be careful threading using the M3 screw. Just guestimate before hand how much the M3 screw threading will go in before really threading the M3 screw into the ball joint. I cracked one because I threaded it too deep in.

As of now, roll center is unchangable. Rear might have an option to do it but not yet release

What is the deal with other brand having 3 flyweights (even 4 maybe) and most of them have 3 holes on each. Wouldn`t that make it lighter? thus less punch? but seems they have no complain about it

I don't know if you understood my earlier reply but this is what I meant by the dogbones making a "dimple" in the outdrives. Check the wheel axle adaptor too on the opposite side in the knuckles.



The "dimple" in the outdrive makes the dogbone bind in the sideway movement and this causes the rear suspension to bind and the rear of the car hooking.

Just thought you should check this out first... You may or may not find this on your car.

I guess there's a certain limit where less or more punch will be attained when you lighten or make the flyweights heavier. Remember that the Centax 3 is pretty small compared to the other clutches. A classic one is the Centax clutch for the NTC3. I guess many people could not get the clutch to work properly on the NTC3 due to it being very small. Centax II did not have this problem and I remember lightening the internal parts some more to get more punch !

Consider the following as last option you will check to remedy the problem after you making sure both front and rear upper bearing block are screwed firmly to its bottom part and holding all the eccentric bearing housing firmly as well,

Steering Linkage
In case you found out that turning radius for left and right is different while the steering linkage (from servo saver to knuckles) are both already in the same length, what you need to do is to adjust the servo linkage (from servo horn to servo saver). Do not follow the manual length measurement, different brand of servo will sit differently. Just make sure when looking at the car (front of car facing you), the servo saver is in its center of chassis, then adjust the servo linkage until you get same maximum steering throw for both left and right (remember, steering linkage measurement must be the same). The use of around 3x15mm droop screw style is very useful for this matter to get shorter length without the need of cutting those plastic ball cups shorter.

Not a springsteel. Must use Makino before breaking on the process or in use

You mean like what Hudy does on the PRO wheel adaptors?

Sorry. Don't have that kind of precision machining tool to do that.

Use Dremel with diamond bit.
When you grind to remove the "dimple" it is not precision already
