Why not run the kit clutch? It's much better and easier to work on. But as far as it fits, I don't see why not.

Any good starting point on the springload, for the 2 speed?
Follow the old Serpent guide to assemble the 2 speed,
just close the spring with min tension, then set the set screw with minimal gap you can see between 2 shoes. Then adjust the spring until you can just pull the shoes open by fingers.

One of the best things on any Capricorn 1/8 car is the centax clutch. Just assemble and set it according to the printed instruction from Capricorn and you will be pretty much in the ballpark. Once you get the centax setup and running right, you will throw big oversize rocks at any kind of GT clutch.

My guess is more steering, stiffer rear and more flex in the front it says.

Default Second hand C803...thinking of giving 1/8 onroad a go this year

Hello gents,

Bought a second hand 803 2 weeks ago. Fully unmounted it, cleaned it and rebuilt it. It's my first 1/8 onroad and was thinking of giving it a try this year.
Didn't replace anything yet and built it according to manual spec (v1.3).

Any tips are more then welcome...

Willem, heel mooie auto maar is meer dan dag en nacht verschil met je GT

Zou zeggen vraag een 8 racer bij jou om je ff op weg te helpen.
Euuhh volgens mij mis je wat onderdelen of was die nog niet geheel klaar.

Veel plezier iig gewenst.

PS kan je op weg helpen maar dan op de AMCA, hoor het wel.

Personally coming from 977 and 977 WC, I'm much happier with this car although I haven't run it a lot yet. Enjoy!

Simple,...as i just removed something like 6 worn bolts from the chassis.
First of all...never use the capricorn screws. They are shit. Replace all the countersunk screws under the chassis as broken countersunks are a bit more difficult to get rid of then cylinder heads or normal screws.
To remove a broken or worn out bolt first drill a approx 2 mm hole with a 2 or 3 mm drill.
Then you'll need a simple screw extractor which is tool made to move the worn bolt. You can buy these at any hardware store. Hand press the extractor into the hole you drilled untill you feel the bite. Then use a pair of pliers and while keep pressing the extractor slowly left turn the worn bolt. You might have to give it go or 2 but you will succeed in removing the bolt!

Hope this helps

Come to think of it. The remaining part in the bracket is loose as there is no axial force on it. It might be a little torn due to the breaking but could try giving it a bit of a side load on the top with sharp pin and see whether it turns either left or right...you might be lucky and get it out this way.
