Default clutch kits/flywheel after market help!

just got a reds and was interested to know what the size of the flywheel is.. ie 32mm or 34mm.. radius,width? what difference does size make when choosing what size? cant imagine the access area on the chassie being much different from one buggy to the next.. ive always used the clucth kit i recieved with the buggy kit so..

clutch and flywheel is determined by the brand of vehicle you run and not the engine. refer to your vehicle owners manual for proper size.

What car is it for, measure what clutch/flywheel came with it & get something the same size. My brother has a REDS TE2 on his JQ White with 34mm flywheel but thats the size that came with car. I think most use a 34mm flywheel & only a few run a 32mm f/wheel.

Thanks for the info.. that gives me a good idea of what to expect.. the reds quattro clutch fits alot of the brands out there inc. JQ.. will be getting my clutch sooooon! , cant wait to experience what M. rossi's handy work on these engines will be in the 998.

kyosho uses a 32 mm flywheel because the engine sits very low on the chassis. a 34 mm flywheel could touch the ground in case of chassis slapping, killing the engine.

Xray also uses 32mm. I think those are the only 2 brands that use a 32mm

I think that clutch fits the following:
Kyosho, Team Losi, JQ, Mugen, Agama, Xray, Team Associated, Hot Bodies, Serpent, OFNA, etc.

I am using the clutch kits form Ryan Lutz (Alpha). Best pricing and they are really good...
