Road Rage:

You can order it to Edwuard, But you also need to verify your crank pin. With a caliper measure it at about 4 diferents points, just to be sure the vrank pin doesn't have an oval shape.

Not entirely true. It's the combination of spring preload and clutchgap that determine the engagement point.
Think of two clutches with the same preload but one has a much bigger clutchgap. That clutch would have to move much further against the spring so would engage later.

I understand your point but I was only referring to comment about the consistancy of the preload measurement. The distance you screw the preload nut down is independent of the shim and collet since the nut is tightened against the flywheel. Do you agree?

You were referring to my point, and I agree with You....
You can give a preload in mm, if it is measured from this nut.....
But as Julius said, the engagement point depends on more than only this preload setting, so the gap also plays an important roll here, and that was not mentioned.....
This is why I said that it is "dangerous" to tell that your preload should be ...mm.

I agree. It's just one part of the puzzle.

It gets worse,

All springs are different too. They are not all of equal length. That makes comparing even more difficult. Agreed the measurement from the top of the clutchnut helps, but you need to add clutchgap, type of weights and spring used to the mix.

Especially when the clutch setting is agressive and late it is very tricky to copy by giving nummbers.

Does anybody know when the new Mega ZX 12's (with the new conrod) be in the United States, Serpent's page said the updated Mega ZX 21 will be realeased early April.

And will the prices for these updated Mega's be the same as the current ZX 12 and ZX 21?

If so that would be great!

Thanks
Edgar
