not at all, if u had a few hundred dollars spent outta the country, im sure you would inquire about the company when no confirmation or anything was sent to me...but when peeps BUTT in and take it outta context,thats when it gets a lil heated...lol .. back on track, than for the flyweight tip, that's what i thought, im coming from a mrx4 clutch "old school" since i had a 1/8 in my hands, this clutch is new to me, and this JP has all sorts of legs, but a soft bottom, so i have the flyweights leading, i think ill try them trailing to see what that does, ...lol at first i had them just sitting between pins, first mistake, but , theres a ton of help/support on here, im getting it on track. regionals this weekend, trying to get it together.....


possibly drilling the other hole not being used in flyweight would render some more "snap"?

Well,

Re. shop, I experienced the same when I order some parts in Holland, then I called for refund end up. But I think this shop is reliable, so keep tracking your parcel in the system

Re. Clutch. Oic, u get used to MRX4 clutch, its totally different. The push type weight gave your fast engagement, same as V8, still using 4D push weight, but the spring should be very hard to compensate the fast engagement, I guess.

Gentlemen, Tommy does not race!!! All the advice and help you guys have been giving him is a waste of time. Check the powerline thread, you will see what I talking about. He's almost certainly has NEVER even tested the things you guys advice him on. No blown clutches cause he has not been to a track.

Ignore him and his questions.

Why are you trashing him he's just trying to get his stuff dialed in Isnt what this thread is for. Why if so it seems are you following him around ?? I think he's leaving these questions for drew and other xray drivers. Not you. Let's keep the peace and get back to racing.

For the guys who is using the R15B body, how far forward from the centre of the bumper do you mount your body (assuming your body posts are in the forward position)? If you had a second chance, would you mount it differently? Any comments are welcome, thanks

Mount 1cm from the edge of the bumper, not the center of the bumper. Approx 15mm from center of bumper

Default FYI

Just a little build tip. Put a 3x12 grub screw in the front arms for the lower shock mount instead of the 3x8 that come in the kit. I had one on each side want to pull out at the Byron's race this weekend without any impacts. Love the car. Thanks Drew for the help this weekend!

Hey guys we continue to be impressed with our RX8. This weekend at the Byrons race Loran made the A after bumping up from the B. She finished 5th after the 60 minute final by being patient and staying out of trouble and this was only her second time running 8th scale. We are still not quite on pace but making progress. The car is durable too. Her car is bone stock with the exception of the Serpent yellow shoe that I modified slightly to fit the stock clutch and the shock spings we are still playing with but for the Byrons we ran Mugen white fronts and Gray rears but I would have liked to try the red Xray rear touring car spring but never had time to test it. I also tried the mugen gray spring on the front but the car seemed to lay over in the front a little too much. 32 fronts and 35 rears.

The car works great straight out of the box have you change anything on your set up?
