Yep from CC racing, he strapped a big block into a 1/10 scale. Now I recently wrote guiness world records about an attempt I made. I got all the info and more I was looking for. The world record for RC internal combustion engine is only 86mph and held by a guy in the UK. These top speed records that mark and so many others hold are by different RC sponsored events. Also note that the worlds fastest RC car is now 171mph as of December, that is a guiness record tho.

The video mentioned was taken 4 years ago and with all the runs I have completed with radar and GPS, radar is not accurate if its moved around ESP with the bushnell gun. When stationary compared against GPS, The radar is on average 1mph faster, but driving buy a box as close as you can at over 60-70 mph is crazy but it's the only way to be accurate with radar. Oh and those motors on the twin were nova 528's which in its day was the king.

what springs were you trying to run in the clutch ?

also I suggest you look into a Buku clutch with the extra heavy shoes..........they have excellent clamping force* and if they do slip all they do is polish the inside of the clutch bell....The wear material is a automotive grade kevlar clutch material......

* typically people setup the buku clutch with all 3 shoes staggered to a different engagement RPM... I do no like the clutch staggered and run it so all 3 shoes are set identical....The clamping force and overall performance is much higher this way.......

That RB Modded mill has some serious power, now just to get it to the ground. I have some heavy heavy springs if you need them, just let me know. Keep up the good work, I almost have my garagemahal constructed and can put my extra time into my machine when I get back from Europe, hoping to see you set the bar high.

Yes it seems to run better every time I go out with it and I've yet to try the new one that was moded by Rick might put it on a stock truck n run it a bit to tune it in. Also going to build another speed truck with a 3speed trans to put it in ,but not giving up on the direct drive truck .

It would appear your geared for 75mph give or take a few, if that happened to your clutch it shows your over geared. The integy springs I use are .9mm.

Like I had told you skillet awhile back need to roll into the throttle n I was not doing that .It takes a good distance to get my truck wound up when you have 33x22gearing on direct drive .

How the clutch shoes are initially seated in can also play a massive role in how well a clutch can hold..........if the shoes are not properly bedded in they can fail very rapidly under heavy loads.....A dynamite shoe is relatively hard and does take some time to properly seat into the bell....Is it possible this clutch was not bedded in correctly ?

My Experiance with the max life shoes is they suck, I melted two sets in less than 20min each time. The spring plays a major role as well in shoe longevity. But if over geared it doesn't matter what springs you have as it will slip no matter what.

When I ran 4wd I hammered the throttle right off the bat, I didn't role into it. RWD is a different story obviously. Once the truck was steady I hammered it. Slowly leading up to full throttle only increases the chance of popping the motor. Running at max rpm for 50ft or so is one thing but max rpm for 600+ feet is just an accident waiting to happen. That's why you should jam on it as soon as you can.

Your ratio is 1.5:1 for your spur/cb mine is 1.35:1 but your final output is 4.8:1 where as mine is 5.9:1. Hence why your way over geared. You need to set a baseline and change gearing from there
