What clutch shoe do you use? youcan start by use the xp clutch shoe. how mouch lash do you have i personally use .4 because that is what i found that i like but you may increase to . 5 or .6 so the engagement is more violent. what clutch spring do you use i like either the kyosho hard or the mrs 1001. what fly weights do you use the stck one are ok, but i like the slide or the kyosho because they are lighter. the compromise i run is the kyosho fly weights along with the delta red shoe, withthe mrs spring. with a lash of .4 also make sure that the bell when on the 2 bearings you push down make sure everything spins freely.

Don't trip Steve, you're right!

To accomplish proper fitting of other manufacturers springs within the Centax II clutch system, a different flywheel nut must be used in place of the original!

A Kyosho or Mugen nut should do the trick!

Another thing, with the usage of lighter flyweights they produce less pressure on the plate which holds the shoe, which can cause premature wear of the clutch shoe.

A very successful clutch setup that we use here without having to use equipment from other manufacturers goes as follows:

Yellow (Brown) Clutch Shoe
T3 Flyweights with 3x3mm setscrews in the 2nd hole
SPP Centax plate
Serpent 1.8 spring (long)
Clutch Gap ~.5
Clutch Endplay ~.7

As far as the nut goes, adjust it according to the traction that is available at your local track!

Good luck!

Endplay 0.7mm.... ???
So you only run 5 minutes with your thrust bearings?...
I suggest you eliminate the endplay as much as possible up to 0.1 mm or so....
Also try a 0.7mm gap......

I've been on the same thrustbearing since... forever now! Proper maintenance of thrustbearings extend their lives 100 fold. I constantly grease my thrustbearing whenever possible.

Nigel,

maybe you meant clutch gap = 0.05 mm instead of 0.5mm ?

Nay, this is exactly how i run it, .5 gap and .7 endplay. Well it works for me, everyone runs their clutch differently. Just throwing out some data to give people reference points.

maybe we are misunderstanding each other. i don't think it is physically possible for the endplay to be greater than the endgap.

i thought that endplay is the float in the clutchbell with all parts installed, and endgap is the float with the bearings removed?
