there are no problem in shoe.

But after 10 fuel than.. Clearance(clutch gap) changed each 1 tank run.

i checked shoe.. and i found the new black shoe(UFO2) had bigger diameter than old Black shoe.

clutch bell had same diameter of UFO2 NEW shoe.

i think clutch bell's diameter must be larger than Shoe's diameter.

if not and had same diameter.. clutch bell edge will press shoe edge..

then shoe will be wear out in sharp shape.. like my shoe.

how about you think?


i consider cutting UFO2 shoe to have small diameter.

I think you're right but its almost an advantage because the edge of the clutch bell now "digs" onto the edges of the shoe ... but I guess this will only be a for a short while and then after that I think operation should return to normal.

You have to remember that the gap get bigger as the shoe wears, the engagement becomes harder and harder and therefore the rate of wear increases. This is the problem with the black "normal" shoes even if from other manufacturers, the accelrated wear at the end causes inconsistencies .

Yes agree with you, so that means your bell and shoes are the right ones.

wow gansei, that means this new UFO 2 clutch shoe is not lasting oso. how about the price of this new shoe? more expensive than the old one? and not lasting. hmm, Kfactory need to do something about their new products.

oh, guys, may i ask whats the total shock length for front and rear? coz whenever my tire wear out to about 60-70% i can't set the rear ride height to 6mm, its stuck at 5mm, even if u fully tighten the shock nut. thanks. my frenz with Kyosho shock seems not to have this problem. yesterday, i was bored at track, i changed the stock shock cap (connecting to the shock shaft), to mugen ones (need to do some cutting), but then when tire wear out, its still the same. thanks.

Default G4+ test

i run My G4+ conversion kit in korea circuit.

my G4 was very aggressive in cornering.
(my g4 show nice activity in low traction(some dusty ground))


car go well in big size rear tire(61mm~65mm)

But car's rear was flowed or slip in small size rear tire(60mm below)

my g4 width setup was front 197mm, rear 199mm

so i will test front 198mm, rear 200mm to solve rear slip probelm in next week.

Shocks should be around 64-65mm
Check your downstops, they could be screwed out too far and not allowing the arm to drop.

Ah man, this is bad news then. I wonder what shoe muppet uses? We'll have to wait, he's racing today ... I didn't go because the forecast was rain/showers ... I don't enjoy racing in the wet even though Unc Ray Wood thought I did.

What i think Gansei might be trying to say is that the origianl ED Trans Bell is larger in diameter, i currently have 3 bells in stock, i have the original ED trans which covers the whole shoe, i have the stock bell that came with kit that looks the same as the Kfactory UFO2 style, then i have a Kfactory one just recently bought thinking it was the ED trans type but it was same as Stock labeled as Kfactory!

TOOOO many Bells, tooo much confusing id say for Clutch setups!

We all know how critical clutches are, and i think team Magic need to sort it out sooner the better as we dont need this problem with Modified Engines!

Just want to point out that my Original Clutch lasted easy 6 rounds of racing and many practices days! freaky as it is, but i think it was a good earned usage out of that little sucker!

just my 2cents worth!!!!
