to remedy early clutch engagement - tighten the clutch spring further , I am doing 0.8mm

If your second gear isnt kicking in release/loosen equally the clutch shoe screws furhter.

I have to go back and make an adjustment. The spacing between the clutch and the housing is to much. It is not catching. Any ideas on that one, i'm going to be working on it tonight.

the clearence between the clutch shoe and the clutch bell shouldnt be huge, The clutch shoe should just have about 1.0mm of play and should not scrub when you turn it.

If the clutch bell is too far out your clutch shoe wont last long..........and many other components in tandem. Hope this helps

Does PRP make more then the two spring options for the shocks (grey hard, yellow harder)? If they don't have any more options will other manufacturers springs fit?

Default How to get the spacing down?

Between last year and this year, I have done something that has increased the spacing. I'm curious how do you get spacing down. I have tried a lot of things, and they aren't working. Thanks in advance.

oh! that one, yeah, you need to shim it to have the right freeplay between the shoe and bell. Too much will result in excessive shoe wear.

Right now, I am using the OS version 2 .
But three days ago, I ordered a new Novarossi 35+21 modified.
Car should really be dialed in then.
Everything else in te car is dialed in great, and then car is handling pretty much the way I want

I'm going to be working on that this weekend. I was able to get the distance down, but from the time that I mash my 3PK to the time the engine accelerates seems to be a little delay time.
