supposed to be yes but like you i've only seen the 190mm and it came from your country painted here by one of our top body painter heard that Proline might have a problem with Dodge seems that Proline did not inform Dodge that they will be using the Stratus 3 so they say that they momentarily stop production of the Stratus 3

I got the brand new Protoform Stratus 3 200mm at my local shop here in Minnesota on Friday, I know they have had them backordered for awhile, should be available everywhere within the week or so. It looks good, I won't run it till next weekend so not sure how it works yet.....

When building your centax clutch, how many washers did you have to use to space the the end bell out enough so it wouldn't rub on the clutch shoe? The manual didn't say anything about this but some of the centax building articles say this is a necessity

BTW, I have a Mugen X12 engine.

It varies from engine to engine. I do it by trial and error. You can put what you think is more than enough and then take out one shim at a time till it rubs then put one back in. Your shoe will last a lot longer and the clutch will work more consistently after doing this.

Getting the car dialled in to my driving style.
main set up is as on the WC set up but with the following changes:
Spool in front
TCD in rear
Silver front springs
3degree rear camber
2 degree rear toe in
Medium length ball cups on rear shocks to give 8mm ride height, so it can ride the bumps on the banking without decking out.
Rear roll bar removed

no other changes, so the WC set up is about right for a base set up.
I have yet to make up a new shell so I've dug out a 2 year old Protoform Vectra shell which used to be on my V-one R, but I think the Dodge 2.1 will suit my track best on this car.
Cant believe the cornering speeds, you can go faster in, and still put the power down earlier, guess it's goodbye to the FW05.

man, am I jealous? I wanted to run my car, too. I only got about half done, and my wife got bored on the long weekend. I was forced to stop and had to go to palm spring(shopping) with her

The RRR clutch instructions are wierd.
Just stick with common sense and it all works out.

Thats what I was saying half a year ago on the fw-05 thread. After the first day i drove my RRR i put the FW-05 up for sale and never even thought twice about it. (I did regret my hasty packaging of all the gears and spare parts as the fw and rrr share cb gears and shocks and other assorted stuff. Oh well it is still way faster) Im fighting the urge to overdrive my car right now, a fine line between being dialed and pushing too hard making it feel loose when it really isnt. The agility makes you want to push it like you would a lola shell!

hold the engine sideways with the pilot shaft pointing up. spin the clutch bell and keep tightening the adjustment nut until the clutch bell is spinning free. after you do this. add or take off shims in front of the clutch bell untill you have approx .5 mm of enplay on the clutch bell. that should get you started.
