Talking

Hey Serpent guru's....I'm looking for the "perfect" clutch setup. Can't seem to get it set for my sons (Robbie) 960! He wants it to hit hard out of the turns but I just haven't found the right combo of spring, end-play, etc. When I do get it to hit hard enough it overheats and fades out. I've looked in TSN but haven't found anything.

Hit the wrong button and it posted before I was done talking!.....

Anyway, if someone can point me towards an article on the clutch or post it here I'd appreciate it!

BTW, does anyone use the "Tommy Nut" setup anymore? I'm sure Doug M will remember it

Bob:

Here are some things you can try..

First you can check what gears and pinions you are using maybe you can a little more punch with changing the gears..

Here is what i use on my 960 and have great punch exiting the corners hope this helps..

clutch bell 16/19 spur gears 45/50
903199-serpent ptfe machined flyweights/these can be used in a couple of ways,(1)like the regular flyweights on the pin,(2)off the pin wich would be a little more aggressive,(3) Off the pin plus add a set screw to one of the holes to make it a little more aggressive than #2..
909520-Centax II / III spring 1.8 (10mm)
i use 0.70 play and 1.30 clutch spring..

Thanks Roniel.....I'll order those flyweights today.....to use off the pins, does that require cutting that part of the flyweight off?

Been waiting for that shock tool.....ordering that as well!

Serpent makes a couple of lightweight parts for the 960,on my 960 i have alot of optional parts that you replace from plastic to alluminum as optionals plus alluminum screws and my car is really light not under weight but very close,i also use a lipo reciever pack wich also reduces alot of weight ...

Bob:

It does not require cutting at all the flyweights are all ready for just dropping them into the flywheel,first try it without the set screws,and if does not kick as hard as you would like it then try the set screw,let me know how it works out for you ....

Ok, the 960 i am going to buy as i said before has all options installed allready so i think the car is allready lightened? i think he has changed the screws to alluminum too. But i dont have a lipo reciever pack

Why is the car heavy from the box?

You can use the same chart as the 950R. Below is the link for downloads.
