That is what I would do.
I do not understand why people are having so many issues with the clutch. I personally think it is the best sedan clutch I have ever used. The red spring in my opinion is a little too soft, because when you finally tighten to the proper adjustment the spring is smashed and becomes coil bound and this is what makes it slip. The orange spring allows you to run it with the adjustment nut flush with the end of the threads and allows it to be free without coil bind. Basically if you have to tighten the spring down so far as there are 4 or 5 threads showing to get the engagement you are loking for that spring is not stiff enough and you should try the next spring stiffer until maybe 1 or 2 threads are showing.

I personally like the orange spring with the flyweights. Saying all of this I will be trying the new UFO clutch at the next few races.

Does anyone know why RDLogics doesn't have all of the parts for the Mongoose on the website?

I do not know why they do not list every part? Mystery to me as well, I've talked to them about it, but does not seem to be a priority. All I can say is email them or call them with a part number and most likely they have it even though it may not be listed.

Rear sway bar...

I mentioned a while back that I was getting uneven action out of my rear sway bar, and a couple other people mentioned they had the same problem.

Well, I found out what was up while I was changing the oil in my rear shocks. As it turned out, I had a ball cup on the rear hub that was REALLY tight(didn't notice it because it was the last thing I snapped on) and was causing the suspension on that side not to move as free...thusly causing the sway bar not to raise the suspension as much on that side.

After correcting that (by chucking the ball end into a rotary tool and spinning it with grease inside the ball cup) the sway bar was able to work equally on both sides while still having the bars being turned to the same degree.

So anyone else who was having this issue, it might be a good idea to check out the freedom in the rear suspension. It may not be a sway bar issue at all.
