Why?
This nut is not moving with clutch engagement....
So if the bell spins freely with all bearings installed, all is ok.

It says "out of stock" because its so new they haven't gotten the pricing figured yet. So just give them a call if you're interested.

yes you're right...
so to set the correct clutch gap, we'll either need to remove the nut or tighten it far enough so that the bell could sit on the shoe. else there' be a gap created by the nut preventing the bell from sitting onto the shoe.

Serpent recommends 40w which is 1000Cst for 733. I would begin with 600Cst and 2 holes open.

Nothing to do with performance. The car works VERY well. Just thinking of taking some time off from racing.

I wouldnt sell it if I were you, if, in lets say 6 monts, you want to come back(you will trust me, I did it after the 09 nats)you will have to invest in it all over again, bunch of money. If you keep it, then all you need to do is charge up the bateries and go to the track.

This weekend I finally got the clutch to work properly

I put some M3 custom made set screws into the weights, and I'm running them in between the pins. I also leaned out the engine a little bit.
Thanks a lot for your help guys, really appreciate it
