I'll get some different clutch bells & the 'UM210' clutch.

Do you think the blue heatsink makes any difference to be worth the money? It looks pretty sexy though .

Other than that it's just maintenance and practice, practice & more practice!

The head brought my temp down by about 50 deg F, I like it!
From the pictures of your track on the website, I would imagine you could definately use more topend speed on the straights so the clutch bells would be good.
Do you guys race the exact same circuit as the 1/5s ?

The stock guys actually run a shorter track than the 2-speed cars. This is basically so our engines don't blow up!

The section that is cut through it in the middle of the straight, where the corner off the sweeper meets the straight.

I'm getting the blue heatsink because I found out that it's legal for me to run it .

i would hope it would be legal! In theory it provides no additional power however reallistically you can lean the engine out further due to the reduced heat within the engine.

is it bad if i ran the car without lubing up the one way coz i didnt actaully pull apart the bearing
i left it in ONE piece and just sprayed some metho on it, i meant does it supply oil to the outside of the one way? seems as there is castor oil in the fuel and synthetic oil.

ozy...
to set the 2 speed. u need to do it on the track.. u have to adjust it so that it kind of shift into the 2nd speed about 1/4 of the straight..some might perfer a bit later ...
if your shifting point is late. like about 1/2 of the straight.
you have to loosen the setscrews ..
how many turn depend on how tight is your screw being tighten
you could try 1/4 of a turn and then try the car on the track..
if it doesnt shift as per what u wanted.then bring it back and loosen it 1/4 turn again.. untill u can get it right..
