Default how many bearings and spacers are needed inside kyosho evolva m3 clutch bell

Hi people I'm having problems inside the clutch bell and how many bearings and spacers do I need insdide the clutch bell.In the manual it shows only 1 bearing inside the clutch bell and one on the outer clutch bell but I've seen on the serpents they use 2 bearings and one spacer inside the clutch bell one bigger than the other and one bearing on the clutch bell.What's the best way to do the bearings inside the bell would it be different for me because I have a kyosho evolva.

Thanks people

You need one bearing on each side.

For spacers, you won't like the answer. You need the right amount of spacers and that will vary from clutch to clutch and engine to engine. Josh has a pretty good article on clutch setup.

How the Serpent is using the bearings is their design and can not be used on a Evolva. Just use the bearings as mentioned in your manual.

About the spacers it is all about the gap and endplay. Gap = 0.7mm and endplay as less as possible but still something visable, in numbers you do need 0.1~0.2mm

Just follow this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wjogF57xpo
But only about the gap and endplay.
