too nice that I would probably run the car when no one's on track!

The most important thing from now on is to learn how to drive.

How long are your thrust bearings holding up?

Mine lasted about 12 tanks. I guess I didn't lube them enough. Now I need to order a new one

Any particular grease you would consider the best to use on the thrust bearing?

When you guys do relube the bearing, do you disasemble the assembly or apply grease to the area after a couple of tanks?

Sorry if this is a repeat question...just a little hard to locate the info in the 150+ pages.

Thanks,
Puma

i havent lube them long time. i would say around 3 months with running it every week end full day.

I am not asking you not to lube them but if you set your clutch correctly, it should work well and last a long time.

Right now I know when I assembled the clutch I used the suggested settings in the manual and used a caliper to make the measurements.

What grease are you using? I was using associated Stealth Grease.

It's all about the grease w/ thrust bearings! We normaly use something called Ronnie Grease which is sold by Paris Racing. It is a high temperature tacky transparent green grease. Take the thrust bearing off blace on the 2 faces and inner race assemble and lasts for the whole day. Just take it off and re-lube before your next race day. Been using the same thrust bearing for months.

It depends how much play you have on your clutch - too much play and you will cook the thrusts quickly.

I use Mugen Sticky grease and apply it before every race meet - not so hard to do, only one screw

there is a good one which is hardly get. the hyspin+ from racer's choice. besides, besure you place the trust bearing in the correct direction. i.e. with the open end facing inward.

the hyspin is a non grease type (wax type) high temp lube and it is of high quality.
