InitialD or anyone else
I've been racing with the centax clutch for number of years now, but I never played with the gap between the bell and the shoe, too lazy I guess. I've alway set the gap according to Serpent around .5 mm to .7mm. My question is what would be the results if the gap is too small and too big?
Thanks

Exclamation

Its seems like Im getting a xs-6 system (synthesizer) and a 5925mg servo for steering. Reason: Price and easy access to service and repair.


Are there any known problems using hitec digital servos for 705?

Default centax gap

If the gap on the centax is too small it will bog the motor down. The motor is not using the rpm to make the clutch engage.
If itís too large the motor will over heat because it is over working the motor. In other words the motor will rev high to engage the clutch.



Hope that helps......

I would rather go for 23T on the middle, just 2.5mm split on the front. Tried it, but still don't like it, not much steering. 705 is already a well balance car like what Julius Kolff had mention. and i "think" 1:1 car is always the fastest car. Just my 2 cents worth.
Ummm, I think you got me wrong... Running a split would make the overall overdrive to be 1:1. Running a split compensates for the different front and rear internal drive ratios when using the respective pulleys to make your overall front and rear tire rollout the same...

So there I don't actually see that the front belt getting strained like what you get when you front overdrive the car...

Well, the reason I like the idea of the smaller front tires is that you get to run your front low. I find that when using larger tire diameters in the front, I am not able to get the front shocks to extend full out to the intended front droop setting after you have set the front ride height.

It's kind of hard to explain but if you run a -2 front droop and use a 5 or 6 mm ride height on a 64 mm front tire, you will see what I mean...

Yes, that is correct. A larger gap makes the clutch more agressive. Also, it will be hard on the thrust bearings... A smaller gap makes the clutch engagement smoother.

I believe the clutch gap would have the same effect of using harder Centac coilspring. Harder spring would make the engagement more agressive and vice versa for the softer coilspring.

a few pages back, i asked a pile of questions re: building my 705 kit. i had particular trouble with the centax. thanks for all that helped out. much appreciated. it turns out the problem i was having was related to not reading the manual properly (duh).

anyway, the car rips. i have attached a few pictures....i am awaiting a novarossi s3.

one questions: are elligi wheels more brittle than other manufacturers? racing last weekend, i blew up two wheels, one in a crash with another car, and the other when i grazed a rolled up fire hose. neither hit was very hard, but the spokes cracked and the wheels exploded. hopefully i won't keep destroying wheels once i learn to drive better.

chachi, as nice as the Ellegis foams are, the 5 spoke yellow rim is brittle, I used it a lot last year, but every now and then I would have a wheel that would break, or a front wheel that would get wobbely after some wall rubbing. The solution is: The Ellegi tire on the white dish rim. Since I switched to the dish rims, I have not had any more rims break or become wobbely. Same foam, better rim. The best aprt is, if you buy then on-line, the dish rim is usually less money too.
