Sorry Kodak,
I didn't see your post asking about the clutch weights

The weights make the clutch engage harder and quicker. I think more consistantly too.
The less weight you have in the more gradual slip you have in the clutch.
I would say if you run less weights in, you might also run a very slightly larger clutch gap too. Then you will feel a difference.

With the red clutch shoes. They are harder so kind of do the same thing as running with less clutch weights in. The clutch 'take-up' is less abrupt, more gradual. But still grips hard when fully engaged.

Should give less wheel spin when set up correctly.

Its hard to explain but do you get what I mean?

This theory in my opinion has got some credibility, less rotating mass will definitely allow our motors too spool up quicker. The same effect as a lightened flywheel in a real car or am i completly wrong

cheers man, but i was thinking of that theory like normal car, so less weights or even no weights sure to gain some extra revs down low...

ill try with the new setup as Brenton MTX4 driver at LH said throw em away that will only hold ya back....!

I can always try i guess
