Questions?? Mugen & Kyosho ?

Today I was shopping for some parts and noticed that the Mugen clutch spring adjusting tool and the kyosho tool are very similar.
I was wondering if the Kyosho tool worked on a Mugen.
Same sort of thing with the pinion gears will the kyosho gears work on the Mugen clutch.
The kyosho parts are less exp. so i just wondered.

(Mugen MRX4 - Kyosho Evolva)

The best and cheapest clutch adlustment tool is the one that comes with the Serpent kits.
Try to find a Serpent driver that has one to spare.
If he's fair he'd sell it for no more than $ 2.



It can also be ordered seperately:

Thumbs up Mugen, Serpent, Evolva

Thanks Ashford has that for $5 bucks the kyosho for $16 and the Mugen for $24.
So do all of them use the same basic clutch (centax) if so gears and all should be interchangable.
Sorry new to this and just trying to get everything I need to go racing.
The Kyosho pinion gears are half the price of Mugen.

In the base all clutches are the same (working and adjustment) but there are differences:
- offset flywheel (mostly no problem)
- 3 or 4 pin flywheel
- clutchbell
- gears

interchangeable:
- nut flywheel
- spring
- spring nut
- flyweights (depending 3 or 4 pin)
- clutchshoe (depending 3 or 4 pin but the one can be drilled to the other)

On a Mugen you can use a serpent clutch but you must use the Mugen clutchbell , bearings and endscrew to get it in line with the gearbox.

I have heard the Velox clutch did not set the pins in the same line as Mugen/Serpent/Kyosho so the flyweights and clutchshoes are not interchangeable (beside modifications)
