Do u guys use rubber-sealed or metal-shielded bearings clutch bearings?

i have a bunch of rubber-sealed bearings from my 1/8 buggy that fits this car's clutch. just wondering if the rubber-sealed ones can withstand the high RPM of onroad racing?

the 1:8th buggy clutch goes through a lot more abuse so the bearings will be fine. metal shielded bearing have less friction though.

Yes, it's weird. I have never had experience or look someone breaks the clutch bell. What's the problem?

I have just purchased a Mongoose and, reading the suggested set up sheet I noticed that the car uses a lot of camber on all corners (3 degrees front, 5 degrees rear), is this ok? Has anybody tried this setup? Please give some feedback, it will be greatly appreciated.

Madness.. I have never see a setup using that much neg. camber except from the old stock setup sheet... Not sure where you're running, but if you're concern about camber, try -2* camber in the rear and -1* in the front.. Rear droop 5 and front droop 0... That should get you in the ball park at most tracks and you can fine tune from there... Remember, running to much -camber is not a good thing..

I ran -2 front and -4 rear camber at Rev measured on the Hudy gauges and my car ran in the 16 sec lap bracket consistantly at the O'Donnell race.
I also ditched the rear sway bar and that helped alot. I have noticed the car likes alot of rear camber. My droop was 5 in the rear and 2 in the front with 58mm tires 45 shore all the way around and it was pretty dialed even in the heat of the day.

Thanks RC_Alan. I was a little surprised when a I saw the set-up sheet included in the manual. Since we race with foam tires I'll probably will be adding an aditional degree both front and rear (-2 front, -3 rear)

I also noticed that the cluth spring is a little bit on the soft side. Have you tried a stiffer one?

Thanks again for the help!

I used the orange 1.7 TM spring without the flyweights at Rev. High bite tracks we run the yellow 1.8 TM spring.
