Default rcrevolution.....clutch problems

I use the orange spring and flyweights with the brass weights just about eveywhere............ with no problems.

Clutch Fundamentals:
1) Make sure your clutch shoe itself slide up and down on the flywheel pins with absolutely NO BINDING. If the clutch shoe hangs up when it is pushed out on acceleration or deceleration it will throw the flyweights or cause them to jam. Solution...... Make sure you check that the clutch shoe slides up and down on the pins freely. If you have to......ream out the clutch shoe holes LIGHTLY with a drill bit. Just so it slides freely.

2) make sure you know how to check your endplay correctly. .3mm to .6mm is the correct endplay. Not enough endplay will cause the clutch to bog and overheat when the clutch heats up during running. This will also glaze over the clutch shoe.

3) Make sure you measure the clutch spring tension correctly. Also make your adjustments in small increments(quarter turns on the clutch nut) Tuning holes in the clutch bell are great for experienced tuners, but newbies should do it manually untill they really understand clutch adjustment. I don't know how new you are to this.

4) For the Mongoose the large Pressure plate works better than the stock plate. It has a larger surface area and rigidity. The larger surface area gives more area for flyweight travel and positive return.

and as for the clutchbell
\dont try drilling it its hardened coated metal, we were drilling it with a diamond bit at 12K rpms and it didnt even scratch the damn thing.

I'll try emailing RD then and hope for some good news.

Seeing that you didn't haven't any luck drilling with your equipment either makes me not feel so bad about me not being able to do it with my low grade Wal*Mart stuff.

Just use the red spring with/out the inserts on the flyweights.
I think that your motor is not working propertly because it is not tuned right.

If you can't get it, Kyosho V1R will fit.

2) Are the front shocks suposed to be stiffer then the rear?

3) should I take out the brass flyweights in the clutch and run with a orange spring and no weights?
1- with the nut on the shock, just changing the tension of the springs
2- yes
3- no inserts on flyweight with red spring.

Somewhere you need very little steering and a ton of brake.

I purchased the 3 Racing upper graphite front deck and the rear shock tower with aluminum stiffener. The quality is very good and i'm pleased with my purchase.
