I loved the way he did his lap of honor before the race.

He looked so full of energy

Shame he couldn't race.

I have no idea but I suspect he was running a more conservative set-up. I have had soft set-ups last for months, while one set to kill fries in one run.

The clutch disk you mentioned above, is it the red shoe or the alu disk behind the it?

Thanks in advance.
Yes it was the red shoe. Seeing as the Xray clutch shoes are quite expensive and perhaps while the Xray team sorts out what the problems are then Im thinking of switching mine out for now to a full Shepherd clutch/flywheel assembly that I still have in my pit box, as I know they are fairly easy to get setup right.

Thanks man. Both of those sound cool. The May race is a possibility.

That's cool. You will have the Fort setup for us then right? I was just talking to Loran about the Sour Grapes race today. Emily and Foster will not be out of school yet but we are thinking about how to make it happen.

Thanks Eightracer.

I used Kyosho clutch shoe (standard grey one) and it's working fine along 45 minutes final. I believe Xray will sort out this problem soon.
Have a nice day.
