You just have to give it a try to see what it does. As mentioned the smaller pulley is most of the time the better choice on very small tracks with tight corners.
Thks bro..

I couldn't find anyone who does since I do believe RCAmerica is Xray's only US distributor. If they are out of a part most likely everyone else is out as well.

I know A-main has some hard to find parts for the RX8 right now but they charge full MSRP so if you need it bad enough you will have to pay.

Since I was in your situation, I had good luck ordering some parts for the RX8 from RC Market, their prices were fairly reasonable and I had it shipped EMS and got my package in 5 days.

BTW, stay away from RC Toro if you happen to stumble on his website, he has parts listed but doesn't actually have them in stock.

Default Clutch Setup Update

For those who experienced the clutch problem on RX8, me also, my clutch bell seems lost it grip function with the shoe.

I just surf Serpent site and found some articles for Centax clutch, here is my idea, I suspect the flyweight doenst generate high pressure to push forward.
Therefore I suspect one of the hole on the flyweight is not a pivot hole for forward/reserve setup, its acutally can put some weight on eather hole. Similar with Centax 3 clutch got alot of complaint.
Guys can give it a try to put some more weight, I will try tmrw.

Just as FYI ..........a few team drivers have been modifying there upper plates similar to the photo provided, to allow the car to have more flex.

Thus allowing the car to have more steering as I have been told by a few of my peer's, however I have yet not tried any modification to the car since it is dream to drive as it is.

Best Regards!!!

Alex

I saw the 3 radio trays you had in your feng shui pit area 2 weekends ago. Looked like graphite termites had taken up refuge in there. lol
