About the loose receiver pack, is normal, just after you install the fuel tank it will be good. It is loose to don't press the fuel tank too much.
I have installed the switch on the left side, no problems yet, everything seems to work fine for me.
About the decals, here is my answer ( )

Sorry for so many post, but I have a new question I have to ask.

Why doesn't the clutch bell have an access hole for adjusting the centax???

I mean seriously, after the smoothness of engagement, the second benifit of a centax is adjustability without disassembly.

As it stands now, I have to pull the 2 speed apart and remove the clutchbell just to adjust it.

Is this an oversight...defect...or was it meant to be this way?

I think that you mean the clutch bell, I have no idea why they didn't make the hole, but if you want, you can make the hole yourself, if you be carefull, this will not give you any problems
I didn't make the hole, I just take everything apart everytime

Sorry, your right I was trying to say the clutch bell.(edited in original post)

I tried making a hole in it, but the damned thing is too tough!

I guess I'll just pull the stuff apart till I can come up with a way to make the hole.

Darkseid... It may not be the quickest way but, you'll be able to clean any dirt, oil or debris out of the clutch bell, shoes, bearings, shims ect... Also, you may have to take out or add a shim while adjusting the tention spring on your centax clutch... I've always adjusted mine that way and though it's not a 1min adjustment, it only takes 2-3 mins and I know once's it's put back together, it's right... PS... I'm not saying your car is dirty... lol... I just know over time oil and dirt can build up in those area's...

If you find a nitro car that isn't dirty, let me know! Cause once we run them once, they'll never be completely clean again!

I hear you on you point though.

quick update fron the Great lakes challenge from Team RD. Cars are very good had issues we solved with to short of tuned pipes but it hurt our qualifying. If all goes well we expect to bump. It took 15's to get in the A and Ray and I have run those numbers there in the last couple weeks and Brad ran a low 14 and made the b with only first gear. He should have easily run a low 15. I got to turn it up in outlaw those 235 cars are on kill. I only ran a 3 port with a 5 mm stinger for fuel mileage. Since I had only run the car with a VDS on it about 3 tanks it took me a while to get the handling right. will turn it up tomorrow in the main.
Dennis

One in the A of 10th outlaw
one in the B
one in the C
one in the D

No, the screw in front basically holds the thrust bearing, clutch bell, etc...onto the engine output shaft.

The adjustment for a centax (push) type clutch, comes from the nut that screws on infront of the clutch spring. The more its screwed in, the later the clutch will engage, the further its out the sooner it will engage.
