All the guys that have tried the UFO clutch have been extremely pleased with it. I'm almost ready to buy it and try it with my CRF. Here is the info on it: http://www.kfactoryracing.com/produc...1914&pageNum=4

Even the factory team drivers for trinity went with my suggestion & changed to the black which gave them a better shifting on there G4s
My clutch experience goes back to the days I ran the mongoose & tested out the UFO before it was released in the states & I used a mugen gold spring cause it was to soft. when you set yours up I would only put one weight in each flyweight if you use the red spring good luck

I guess the question is...Does the performance difference of either the 2D or the UFO clutch warrant the purchase and use over the standard 3D clutch.

Yes due to alot of different reasons that other drivers would recommend as well the only conclusion would be the price difference between the 2D & UFO
IMO go with the 2D

Default front diff casing

guys im having so much problems with fitting a front diff in the car
it hits the eye-ball ends on the ackerman plate

i ended up grinding down the diff case so the eye ball ends dont hit

is this right?

How loose is the belt tension? If you tighten up the belt, it will pull the diff away from the ackerman plate.

Hey up guy's,

Just wanted to let you all see the quality of the Hex screws i ordered, went with the ones from.... https://www.tonysscrews.com/displayP...5&categoryId=2

Can't believe the quality and service, the screws are a really nice matt black finish, and are one of the highest tenstile stregths possible, he has separated the kit into induvidual zip bags with the thread size and length printed on the front of the back, this is the most important thing as it so easy when refering back to the manual for srew length, no measuring....and all for only $26 and $6 P&P to UK.

The last screw kit i got was a stainless hex screw kit, and they were all jumbled in a pill box, and the screws weren't that strong, head were really soft.

Just wanted to share with you guys, and pass on this recomendation, and however posted the link in response to my question for these screws, thank you, very pleased.

Adam

Funny about the previous post about screws, I was going to ask the same thing!! I bought a few titanium screws for the engine mount and battery plate and I have stripped these before because they get used often and they cost me just over $10USD not including shipping but you get can a full titanium set for approx $40USD. Which brand is better (price is similar):

- From Pro Shop Futaba (Square @ 4500yen)
- RCMart (Atomic @ $40USD http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=10378)

Also, I could not find any info on the Kyosho K.R.F Multi Tyre Setter from Pro Shop Futaba for 15120yen. Anyone know where I can get info on this? What other tyre truer's are available?
