I guess he knows a good deal when he see's one.

There will still be one Yok gp car there.

rjl,

did you put the Rossi in your "3" car?

It looked like it would be a tight fit.

Is there any reasons you would want more or less slop in clutch bell?
All info appreciated!
The assembly and shimming of this clutch is the same as every "power clutch" I have encountered. It pays to shim internally so that the inside 5x10 clutch bearing stays within the bell and can't slide up and down the motor shaft.
Varying the endplay on an adjustable clutch can assist in power delivery but it is personal and depends on your driving style.

I'm running the new PIXI, my engine is a bit shorter than yours, got it to ninth at the Nats and only 2 weeks old at the time.

Thanks for the help with the clutch everyone!! my car is set for its first run finally. unfortunately im back at boarding school so it will be another 15 days till i do get to drive it

by the way, im not the only one who has ever had these problems with rims not coming off the axle! Robbie tells me that he has done it, and it is due to the axle actually threading into the wheel, then when the wheel is on, u cannot screw it off!!! well, with some heat, and tugging, and a little frustration, the wheels are off, and drilled sust a little wider so the go on, and come off!!!

the clutch is the same only the flywheel has changed.
there is no mention of the shims in the inside, this is a racers trick in certain conditions the clutch bell can be pushed into the shoe at idle causing an engine cut, adding spacers makes it so when you push the bell to the engine it does not drag.

Why do you want end float and how much??
basically its a tunning aid, more clearane will cause the clutch to engage harsh, less clearence will give a smoother engagment.
for best info go here

As for changing the width, so you never ran your mtx 2 narrow or wider for differant tracks? or the Kawahara rear end, 2mm at the most wont make that much change especially with mtx spacers

a simple solution to your problem: ream the fresh rims's axle opening a little such that you can extract and mount the rims into the axle with ease.
