The black clutch shoes is mostly used with the Aluminum clutch bell. If you're using the stock clutch bell, you should use the yellow clutch shoes with the black spring.

Capricorn now has a shorter spring less heavy that makes the car super smooth I run this spring with a .6-.7 gap starting at 1mm preload on the clutchnut ... Still with the screws in the flyweights

the stock gearing is funky. You may want to put a 19 pinion with stock spurs
as the 20 gives too numerically low of a gearing compaired to kyosho / mugen

Second gear ratios depend on track also.

As for set up dj set up is in this thread after page 13 somewhere.
When you quoted "Capricorn now has a shorter spring less heavy that makes the car super smooth I run this spring with a .6-.7 gap starting at 1mm preload on the clutchnut ... Still with the screws in the flyweights "

this setting is with the new spring? or with what i have?

What about the yellow shoe whats the difference?

Thanks

This is with the black spring This spring fits in the clutch shoe retaining cup very easy. The harder spring is tight in the cup and a little taller on the clutchnut also it's like a silver/ gray

I also use the black spring. Have a much great sweet spot for the clutch. Trust me this will fix the dusting issue.

Hi DJ,

I looked at the pictures and couldnt figure out why you mounted one of the steering links to the upright from top, and the other one from bottom.

I think the early kits and pre production kits use the same front upright in both side then later on they made them symmetrical, which allow one to mount the steering linkage in the same position on both sides.....When I first got my car kit I had the same problem....

Hello DJ, thanks for sharing with us photos of your car. What improvements do you get from using the WC Chassis?

What spring pre load do you use and clearance, also i noticed you use the yellow pad. What is the difference ?
