I'm going to be ordering some hop-ups today but can't decide which brand to go with...I can either purchace 3 racing or Sata Seiki. Would anyone know which brand I should go with? Was considering getting the following:

Alu. Anti-roll bar mount (Front)
Alu. Wheel Hex (4pc)
Alu. Mid Bearing Blockpad
Alu. Upper Brake Bracketpad
Alu. Engine Brace
Alu. Lower Brake Bracket
Center Support Mount

I can't decide which brand to go with.

Please give advice.

Thanks,
Puma

Building Help with Clutch

Could someone help me on Step 38 (adjustment of the spring on the engine), on page 16.

* How many turns do need to turn the H0755 (recommended) for first run?

* Also could someone please explain Step 39 (putting the 2 speed gears and thrust bearing etc onto the engine), with regard to the number of washers? I don't particular understand how to determine the number of washers to use. I have followed the manual.

Thanks for you help

Sami

1/. starts from 0.7mm of thread expose after the adjusting the nut. it is a good starting point for most of the engines.

2/. before you do this, you should get an assortment of different thickness of 5mm shims to make the adjustment. shim between the inner clutch bell bearing and clutch nut until the bell spins freely with the minimum gap between the clutch pad and clutch bell. adjust the shim with the trust bearing until you have end play around 0.3mm. this is the best setting for most of the engines. end play is measured with the clutch bell closest to the clutch pad vs farest from the clutch pad. simpily use a caliper to measure the clutch bell 1st pinion to the cap screw and the difference is the end play.

Thanks for your reply, with regard to shims where do u get the 5mm ones from? any 5mm washer is ok? I will try your suggestions out tonight, and take some photos and post them on the web, to see if that it is ok.

Hi Manticore,

Is it possible for you to post a picture or a link to the Kyosho shims? as the local hobby shop is 1 hour away, and I want to try to see if I can get it at the local nuts & bolts place down the road.

Thanks

Sami

wouldn't this make more room for the tank to move as the screw holes now become square?
