Kyosho Grey Clutch Shoe

Gearing:
16 / 22 Pinion
56 / 59 Spur

The settings we give are not for modified engines, they are meant for the same engines you will get in the shop.

With the settings posted on our website, the clutch will slip a little for a few minutes but will then break-in and engage properly. If the clutch engages right away from new, your setting might be a little soft and you might be loosing some low end power.
I had run the car for one full tank of fuel with the settings you guys recommended but the clutch slippage thing still persisted!

did you try backing of the clutch spring tension a bit ,might have been to hard a setting.
This is one adjustment that you cant just get right.It took me a lot of laps to find a good setup.I usaully do 3-5 laps and get my pit man to make a small adjustment of maybe 5mins at a time and carry on doing this till I get to the other extreme of clutch coming in to early and then back it up to a point I felt was best.
My 2 cents anyway as this was a logical way for me to check and understand clutch tuning.

I usually do adjustments of 15mins at the beginning to find the most punchy setting (without clutch shoe slippage) & then back off a bit to get my final setting on clutch spring tension.

Brett, you're asking for something unusual! :P
I don't think I can find any evo 2 conrods in Hong Kong now (it seems all guys here are running OS TZ & Sirio Sti now).
Anyway I happened to meet Mr Andrea Rossi, the boss of Sirio when he visited HK a few years back. I will pm you his email address & I hope Andrea can help you on this.
