Hey Robert, when you say roll center opposite to stock, what do you mean? And, did you set my car up that way?

What made you put on the ufo clutch I tested it when it was first released & was not impressed with it the spring is way to soft & there was a loss in midrange when spooling up.
George did you use any other spring other than the red one?? I know we told you we used the orange one which is harder.
One of the benefits of the Kyosho K Factory UFO is it comes with a hard annodized alumunium clutch bell that bites consistant and does not wear or glaze. it weighs literally nothing and it comes with hardened pinions installed on it. How much of an improvment is it? (some) but if your looking for reduction in rotating weight its a pretty good reduction in the right place. Rotating weight reduction is 4 times as important as car weight reduction when it comes to acceleration. The bell removes 10 grams off the crank which equates to the same performance improvement as reducing 40 grams of weight off the car. If your going to reduce the weight of the car you start with rotating first and mass of the car last

On the G4 UFO the alumunium bell and pinions are extra. Just the reduction in rotating mass with the bell is an acceleration improvement.

I went from red to orange & then used the Mugen spring for it to come to life .
I just wanted to hear his response cause on different motors it will take some tweaking to get it to perform at the highest level as for weight on the kyosho it comes right at the legal limit depending on servos. but when running modified motors & using the the UFO clucth there will be a need for gearing change since runtime will be a issue

your car has the roll centers stock josh. what I did in ft myers was flip the rear rollcenters......there are four positions top, upper,lower and bottom...I set your to upper which is stock ....in ftmyers I had them at lower......I hope you understand this explanation

Thanks robert I saw you car it looked good but the ? is with a spool I tested it in a mongoose @ the GLC it felt really good just don't know how it would feel on the RRR since I really don't have time to test it before the next race

Should give you basically the same feel as it did with the monggose......4 wheel braking and good on power, you most likely will suffer some off power steering.

Yeah I know what you mean on the off power steering what i did was offset the caster clips & it gave me great entry&exit I just don't want to tinker with the RRR to much since I really enjoy the car overall

To whom it will be interested-on Winternats we were using 24 T pinion for second speed and it makes a lot of difference on top speed.

Hopefully if i,m correct any 200mm & 235mm body should fit with no problem, it is just a shell think of it that way,
