I'm running smitty's new 2 speed setup also. In fact, had my GT4 at the track a little over a week ago. Worked flawlessly and has butter smooth shifting!

Default yokomo new centax clutch

anyone of you installed the new centax clutch?
I just bought one and having problem installing it to my
OS TR sg-shaft engine...
I follows the given diagram (since i dont understand japanese I just figure out from the picture), but no matter how I arrange the given shims, I end up having a locked clucth.
Is there any site or diagram that i can refers to apart from the japanese version?

Check out www.yokomousa.com

You'll need to email Paul because some of the early Centax kits came with japanese instructions. He can email you the english instructions.

Default yokomo new centax - solved

I manage to install the centax unit with bout 0.5mm clearence with the cap screw tighthened. I found out that I didnt hv enough shaft spacing in the 1st installation coz of the thicker cone washer. Once I change to a thinner cone washer (where u slot in the flywheel) I manage to install it according to the diagram.

I gonna test out this unit tonight... tired of cutting clutch shoes...
hehe

The Yokomo clutch looks similair to the Kawahara clutch. I have the Kawahara clutch. It was a huge improvement to the accelaration of the car. I'm sure after your first run with the clutch you will have a huge smile on your face.

The improvement was good enough to TQ and win the final.

Dan: How can you tell that if you are putting enough Yokomo hard diff oil for the front gear diff unit and the medium diff oil for the rear diff unit??
How does front and rear diff unit feel? Harder to rotate for the front? Any tips for correct setup of the front & rear diff units???
Thanks.
