The clutch and gears are optional. if you wanted a spare clutch bell go for probly a 17 or 18 tooth.(2-speed even better)
The flywheel is required as it spaces the clutch assy outwards.
I would recomend the Novarossi personally.

Welcome to the thread Lue, Ironically it was your revue in Racing Lines a while back that convinced me to sell my Colt and go with the v-one-s, THANK YOU! the Kyosho collection has since grown somewhat.

Engine mount photo.

T53242 - TAMIYA TGX ALUM ENGINE MOUNT $32.95 machined
T50617 - TAMIYA TGX ENGINE MOUNT PR $12.95 cast

I am sure these are them ,see the next post and make sure that the mounting dimensions are right

Default engine mounts

ok this should help, as long as the lower mounting holes are 23mm a part and the engine mount up on top ok ya should be right.
God I love my digital camera!

I think the tr but remember mine is a Zac not the standard OS however I think the Nova has a more linear, controlable power range. I know i'm no help but i think they both have thier own advantages.

Hi


I Raced my car for the first time today, but when i looked at it it was covered in castor oil. I tuned the engine properly and set the high speed needle at 1 turn outwards. Should i run it any leaner or is that not the prob. I have some probs starting the engine and gettin it to idle properly if this is any help

Thanks
Shane
