Actually we are both right. It all depends if you reference the clutch weight at the 12:00 position or at the 6:00 position. At the 6:00 position you would use the left hole and at the 12:00 position you would use the right hole.


Pass you soon...

we are all right , it all depends how / what you mean



.--------- the pin is leading looking at the front of the flywheel front upper pin but the weight is trailing (agressive)


----------. the pin is trailing looking at the front upper pin but the weight is leading (soft setting)

if you say the weight is leading than M7H is right , and that is what he said. But the answer was yes.

i know pictures are better , but i am plain lazy
now correct me if i am wrong, trailing weights will give more force on the shoe, leading weights will give less force.

@M7H See you on sunday, i am assisting the referee.

Leading weights are considered to give a more agressive clutch. This is because as the engine revs up the inertia of the shoe helps the shoe outward.

The difference is not very big in my opinion. There is more difference when you put small setscrews in the open hole of the shoe.

now looking at it ,it seams to me there is no differance other than that the weights won`t rip at the hole on the pin when mounted leading because the pin is pushing the weight. When pulling the weight there is much less material where the pulling force is applied and thats why the weights get distorted and break at the hole wich i have had because i use the trailing way of mounting. But some weights have only one hole so you mount them so it fits and that was trailing.

going to try leading weights.

A portion of mine tore off near the hole when I did Michael salvens way. So I just replaced it. I feel uneasy experimenting with this going the other way.

Hello,

After three years of electric 1/10TC I decided to start with nitro again. Since I drive the Serpent S411ERYX I will go with the S747. Because I didn't follow the scene too much I have a question regarding option/tuning parts that I have to look after for the car? Any advice would be great.

Thanks, Lojz

So far I've only used the optional spring set the car has been very solid. Maybe grab the springs and a few spurs then call it good.

I use the xceed pack.
Dimensions - 80 x 28 x 13mm excluding wires

Especially the width is quite critical. About 30-31mm is max.

This is a pack I'm about to test: http://www.conrad.nl/ce/nl/product/2...systeem-EC3-TP
