Default setting the clutch

I had a hard time assembling the Evolva clutch. Does anyone set the clutch shim space to be anything larger than 0.5mm? What lubrication do you use on the thrust bearing? I am using dry graphite grease. I am using the V one RR clutch shoe since the stock shoe is not sold separately here.


The problem with my clutch is that, the thrust bearing was totally damaged when I set the space less than 0.5mm.

If I set it around 0.7mm, the car does not have the speed even in first gear.



Please help.

Set the clutch as per the instructions. That is with .4mm float, then shim out the inner bearing till the bell rotates freely but has very little in out movement. Use lube on the thrust bearing, graphite is good for belts and pulleys.

HI! there are a couple of lubricants you can use. you can buy the mugen grease. or if your near a pep boys or any automotive supply try the white lithium grease that will be much cheaper and man thats going to last you long time that you wont be able to finish.
There is also the molydenum grease which is alot better but a little more expensive and is not much as the lithium in quantity... both of them work great...they just vary in temp holding...
About the shims on the clutch i have found that the stock shims is not really enough and have changed them with a much thicker to get rid of the play as for the the space mine is set at 1.0mm more or less depends on the track with this much my car does not bog down on slow corners... have fun and good luck!!!

I am going to buy shock springs for the Evolva. Currently, I am using the stock black springs. I need a variety of springs to adjust the car's handling. Does Mugen spring fit the Evolva shock? Is it better to buy the Kyosho front 3.5 gold, 4.5 silver, rear 5.0 gold, rear 4.5-1.9 copper springs? I don't quite understand the relationship between the numbers and the hardness of the springs.

Default Springs

I am currently running mugen white (front) and red or pink(rear). It works well for me. If you want to stick with kyosho springs, Tower sells the optional springs like yellow,pink,blue, light blue.. etc.. check it out.

I ran Mugen white on the front, original black on the rear. This gives me a bit more steering I feel.

I think people may run Mugen springs because it easier to keep track of. Kyosho makes about 20 different pairs of springs. Some are the same color but a different shade.The Kyosho springs definitely work well, but you just need to spend a lot of time at the track trying them.

I don't understand why Kyosho makes over 20 different springs for one car!!! I can't really tell which one is softer than which. Do the Mugen springs fit the Evolva stock shock, or I need to use the Mugen shocks with the springs? Does the Mugen spring set give enough handling adjustability?
