Default Clutch Dilema

I would like to get the new UFO clutch that RD offers, but funds don't permit at the moment.
With the stock push type clutch which comes with the 'E' type.
Which clutch spring would you guys advise to use as the stock one still engages too soon.
I've tried tightening it down. But I'm afraid if I tighten it down any more, it'll be locked-up!

I noticed a number of different ones on the site now and even some using, is it the Mugan 'Super hard' clutch spring?
Just wondered which one would be best to use.

Thanks in advance for any help.

i have been reading quite a bit on these forums about the g4 and i see that as soon as they saw the rrr win the worlds and now with the soon to be released mtx-4, many people just gave up on the g4.If you buy a car you have to stick with it and iron out the faults otherwise you will never get anywhere.anyway in my opinion i think there is not much difference in the handling of the rrr,g4,mtx3,710 etc.........
they are all top cars!!!!!

I have had my g4 for almost a year now and i am very happy with it.i am always consistantly up in the top 3 and i race against mainly other g4's and rrr's and mtx-3's.now im not bragging im just trying to prove a point that the g4 is just as good as any other car out there

I would say orange clutch spring is the one you should use, I am using the yellow one & I think it is a little on the stiff side, We will see soon if that is the right one since the car is not 100% broken-in yet. ( spring adjustment: 1 more trun in, make it flush).
(omg, I am bad, did correct my colors.)

Try using 20T pulley at the rear instead of 19T. It will give you more speed at the straightline. Can match the 710.

Default clutch......

Thanks Piyo Piyo for the advise.

Hey....do you know of any good race days comming up around the Midwest area?
I'm actually from England and not too used to the area yet...
I don't mind travelling to nearby states. I'm on the Iowa/Illinois boarder.

Thanks.

British menace check this site www.midwestseries.com and go to the events page. there is one race left this season in cincinatti and if you click the toledo club and go to their site you will find two more club races there this year,. after that the season's done.

guys the yellow spring is harder than the orange one. use the orange one with the brass weights in the flyweights. if you don't use the weights you can drop down to the blue.

PS congrats to Howard Cho and Ray Jule for qualifying 1 and 2 at this weekends midwest series race in toledo running mongoose's. Howard is a RD dealer in canada. PS Howard won too!

I can tell you that if the servo saver on the MTX is to soft it will break the universals every time. If you hit somthing the knuckles can travel beyond the universals ability to travel and they snap. It will even happen if using mugen axles. Tiighten the servo saver up some more. when I ran MTX that solved the problem. the servo saver needs to be cranked up at least 1/4 inch from the bottom thread.

Toffelmire its all done
