    Help with Nitro Monster king please.

    Hi, Its been quite awhile since I have been into Nitro RC. I recently acquired a HPI nitro king. It was new in box when I got it, I broke the car in as shown by the manual and the truck ran for a month without issue. Well the other day I noticed a noise and it was the "Needle bearing" in the clutch bell that blew up and lodged itself into the clutch bell itself. To make matters worst I was taking the engine out of chassis and the hex screw that holds the engine down to the mount snapped in half and is now stuck in the engine block mount. So my question is what are my options? I cant find any clutch bells for the nitro monster king, I don't want to use the crap "Needle Bearings" for obvious reasons and the screw issue is a whole different story. So any help would be greatly appreciated. I like this truck and really don't want to "scrap" it so the most cost effective solutions are the best for me. Thanks.

    what size is the motor? maybe you can use a clutch from something else that has the same tooth count

    RE: Help with Nitro Monster king please.

    Isn't that just a standard HPI Nitro star .15 in it?
    should take standard small block clutch bell. the A812 is a 12t clutch bell that should fit as its for the .15's


    as for the screw is it flush to the engine? or is there a teeny tiny lip to is?
    if there is a teeny part maybe you can use needle nose pliers to remove it carefully. If its all the way maybe a screw extracting kit might work(I've had questionable luck with them)
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    If I am not wrong the wheels king is its electric version,it has everything that the nitro monster king has with the added convenience of electric.Trading the nitro monster king for a wheelie king should make some sense.

    Thanks for the replies. I decided to sell both of the nitro kings. One is still new in box, I just don't have the time to mess around with these things. Thanks again for the help.
