Hey Guys,

I just wanted to say thanks to Ron at Island Hobbies for working really hard to help me out this weekend at the Canadain Asphalt Invitational and to Tim Johnson at Kyosho USA for really showing what customer service is all about!!!

I'll tell you what boys, for only having the car for two weeks previous to this race and really, only running one day before this weekend, as well as breaking in a new Orion CRF WASP engine on the same day as the first outing with the car, I must say I am extatic with this car. I qualified 6th in the A and finished 2nd...not too bad for a car and engine I had only run once before. I would like to tell you it was all driver but man it's easy to look good when a car and engine do what they are supposed to do!!!
I had to laugh at the CRF engine though. All the guys in the A were running 5 minute pit stops and the CFR was running 7 -8.5 minutes. Top notch for a box stock engine.

Anyhow, thanks again guys for making my weekend of racing very enjoyable!!! Oh yeah, I won the A main in 1/8 nitro too! I'll post some pic.s of the event when I get them.

Default Clutch problem

Hi everyone, I need help on building my clutch on my RRR WCE. The clutch shoe binds to the bell everytime I tightened the thrust bearing retaining screw. I know I put the right shims and I checked if all parts are there. I followed the instructions carefully and also followed the build tips on the RRR Knowledgebase. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Please help, I need my car to be working before Sunday's race at my local track.

Thanks in advance.

You should add shims between the clutch nut and the inner bearing until the bell run free

Thanks for the reply Jeff1, I tried that as well. The clutch bell runs free even when I spin it vertically. I used the 5x7 shims (tried different amounts) placed it between the flywheel nut and the inner bearing. But when I finally tightened the screw to hold it all together, the whole clutch system binds. I know I'm doing something wrong but right now im lost.

did you orient the thrush bearing correctly? the thicker side is supposedly inside.

If you have a spacer between the flywheel and the engine, then you need to take it off ,it should take care of the problem you are having.

You are correct....you dont need that spacer...but you must make sure you have correct gap setting...once that is done...add shims to eliminate your endplay..you only want about .01 endplay....if your clutch is locking up chances are youve added too many shims....and if you have the spacer before the flywheel that would make it even worse.....hope ths helps
remeber gap is very important .4 to .6 max i wouldnt go any further

Fritz D - That's the 1st one I checked, and yes the thicker one is on the engine side.

Team Kamikaze, robert maestrey - Thanks for your replies, yes I do have a spacer behind the flywheel. I'll take that out and check.

I'm not sure there is a performance diffence that would give you better lap times. I personally stick with regular bearings and just clean them after each race day. Just my own thoughts
Later, Mike
