picture of the latest GT-4 clutch. part#ze-mtcl
the yokomo pinion does work on mugen belt. that's what others mugenese are doing with pinion size bigger then 21.

I think parts on yokomo and mugen centax clutches are interchangable.

Manti if you have a chance to try this pipe with the new engines
i think you will be happy at least compared to other race approved
pipes.

The pipe is also available in a fully polished version. We've done testing with the pipe against other ones, and performance wise it's been the best. Here in California the pipe is gaining a lot of popularity.

ah..... MMielke... we have this brand name here in Hong Kong but the pipes available here are older versions. I think the black coating one suits me well because of the the shinny one takes more time to take care with

Yokomo USA will post some pictures of the pipes on the web site soon. Try to get your hands on one. I'm sure you'll like it.

I've been using that pipe (black version) for the past 2 years in my Yokomo, and it is an exelent pipe, but now it is second to my Novamega TPO3 2182 pipe, at least in our track this one is the best pipe with either Picco, Nova's or Sirio engines, and now everybody uses it.
Have you tried this pipe C Verano???? Would like to hear your comments.

let me clarify that all testing done was with either the ns12
jps3 and a paris racing top engine/long rod. we got good results
with this pipe on those engines. I don't think this pipe will
be suitable for a picco based engine.
