The prospec comes with the GRAY and I love it. but then again I drove a 710 before which was a major headache as far as centax, plus I was still learning how to set up a clutch....

the red one is softer so will engage sooner making you car bog a little if you have the spring retainer too loose. If you race somewhere hot like FL for example you may want to use the GRAY shoe so it lasts a little longer, bc I would think the red one will wear very quickly due to temp + added friction.

please correct me if I am mistaken?

but I like the GRAy shoe alot. alot of punch.

Default SERVOS Q:

I am using an S9451 for steering, and I am installing a S9550 for trottle. before I have a KO2174 (strong but slow analog servo) will I see a big difference if receiver pack performance / run time? also, are these compatible with the Hi response setting on an EX-10 ?

the red would grab harder than the gray; curious about grabbing sooner, though.

Thumbs up engine leak?

while tunning my engine today my car had lots of power and was running at 230F (I am in FLA)

however when I began to clean it and do the AR procedure I noticed that there was a little bit of fuel residue, similar to what accumulates on the side of the body where the exhaust comes out, around the bottom of the high speed needle seat right were it screws onto the carb. Does this mean there is a leak? or could it just be from the fact the car was rich at first?

I dont want to mess up this engine.
BTW, it is a NS3 running 20% o'donel


Thanks !

Default Re: SERVOS Q:

Probably not much, I guess. I have the KO 2174 on my MTX-3 as a throttle, and it works just fine. The speed wouldn't help much or perhaps could be somewhat not-really-useful-feature for the throttle purpose.

Seen some guys running theirs cars with all the Analog ones, and they are still fast in the track.

$0.02

best,

well, if you set two clutches (red versus gray)at 0.7mm retainer nut distance and lets say 0.5mm endplay the car with the red will grab harder, not necesarily sooner, but it wont slip as much as gray... dont mind me haha

I don't thnk it leaks. My humble idea would be what's in, what's out. I hope it was just residue of caster oil not really some gunk.

By the way, I run my engine around that temp, as well.

Totally agree with you that having digitals isnt gonna make you faster. I dont care much for a throtle servo (but I do like the fact my S9550 is light), but I do believe in having a good fast/storng steering servo. If you steering servo sucks Ie S3003 like on my tamiya car, then you are gonna be all over the place. you know what I mean?

I used to have the clutch slippage problem until DATA modified this clutch shoe for me. Problem solved.



takes away weight, engage later; hence, grab harder.

I had to do something like that to my 710 shoe, and also add weight to the flyweights

wich BTW the prospec comes with the lightweight ones which take a little long to engage then the regural MTX3 weights
