ammdrew,
This is a private person operation that makes this titanium 2speed shaft. I donít want to give out his phone number or e-mail address to the masses. WAR PARTY RACING is his own racing club here locally in Texas.

You can PM me if you want to get in contact with him.....

Has anyone tried using the Mugen titanium mid-shaft? I hear it fits perfectly and only around $10.

I sure will as I fly by you at the next race! Hey, don't you owe me $20 for the last one? 10 laps x $2 = $20

Default Clutch engage adjustment.

Hi Guys,

My clutch seems to engage at too high revs and as I'm still doing my run-in, I want to still start off with low revs.

I take it, that I have to adjust the screw item detailed in Step 8.3 of the 705 manual.

Logically, I would lessen the gap from its original 9.2mm, but this isn't described in the manual.

Could someone provide some input here?

Many thanks, Mark.

Yes, the 9.2 mm is a little tight for the spring tension. What you need to do is not to lessen the gap but to loosen the spring nut so that there is less tension. 8.5 to 8.8 mm is about what I use. The clutch shoes will be pushed and engaged at a lower engine RPM.

Thanks, InitialD! I'll just rebuild the gearbox and try that out :-)

Just another quick one. I've got the engine running rich at them moment, and when I open the accellerator a bit (1/3), an orange oily gue comes out of the exhaust - build up of mosture and oil I take it. Is this normal during a rich setting?

Thanks once again, Mark.

Mark,

That is normal for the oil to come out from the pipe if you set it to rich. The colors u see mostly depends on the type of fuel u use.

I suppose it is a new engine, don't forget to break-in your engine.

Default Titanium Shaft

Just got the Titanium 2-Speed shaft last night after visiting the guy that sell it. Very friendly guy. All i can say it looks identical to the stock shaft BUT with almost Half the weight!!! I do not have a scale to weight it, but i can really tell the weight different. The titanium shaft is so much lighter!!! That would improve the mass for the drive-train.

Nizee,

When I bought mine from him he told me the stock shaft weighed 26.4 grams and the new titanium shaft weighed in at 14 grams. A very big weight difference.
