thanks!
Michael

Bud back the clutch nut off so that the thread of the collar just protrudes, this should make it its softest and earliest setting.
The washer you talking of before the collet is used when you have a flywheel too close to the carb neck or cant line up pinions etc.. I dont use a washer on any of my motors.

The Mugen spring works great and according to some is more consistent.

Ill have to try the mugen clutch spring, I use it on my 1/8th but havent had a chance to try it on the G4. Its so interesting how many different clutch setups there are. Im sure mine will work by this weekend!

Guys, what is Mugen code for the spring you use ?
I have the CRF(and still looking for the rigth clutch setup).

I found a Mugen spring with code H0767, labeled Super Hard. I found also another one labeled Ultra Hard, its not silver, more for a "blackish" color.

Also, the Orion square spring is equal for any centax type clutch, right ?

The orion square spring performs the same as the Mugen 1.9mm spring. I have both and have noticed they both perform the same.

Is the Mugen 1.9 the Super Hard, silver bright one, or the darker color spring ?
They dont label it with the rating, just Super Hard and Ultra Hard.
I am guessing the 1.9 is the one tagged Ultra then ...

Thankx for the info Zoom

Most of the super hard, Ulta hard etc springs work.
Guys have been trying the HPI 1.8mm black spring with success although is a tad softer than the Mugen/JP springs.
The Orion should be very similar.
The silver super hard from Mugen or JP is on the button though for us as the ultra hard greyish black spring seems a tad too hard for us or you have to run a very small clutch gap.

Default Protoform Nemesis

I've been using the Mazda 6 and the rear gives out quite a bit with that body on it.

I saw the protoform Nemesis #1474 and was wondering if anyone has tried it on the g4s?

The nemesis is ok, we ran it for a while at the beginning of the year. If you want the ultimate stability, try the Stratus 3.1

i ran the nemesis and found it pushed on our tight track....
the dodge stratus 3.1 was the best for rear end grip ....
the mazda 6 was similer but my style of driving i found the rear to loose...
the dodge felt more planted ,this test was done on the same day
same setup same tyres ,each shell was ran for a tank .hope this helps
