Default Volcano STX with VX engine

It has probably been covered here before but Iwill restate it since it could be a safety issue.
Today Iwas tuning up a Volcano STX and noticed the clutch bell was out of shape, turns out they were made from aluminum and they egg out easily. There is a steel replacement available for cheap and its an easy fix. $7.99
Back to my point, during the tune up procedure the clutch bell exploded, luckily Iwasnt in the way of the schrapnel and nothing was damaged. Take heed.

That was upgraded years ago, we found out thats why they were eating up spur gears like crazy. I had one come apart on me too but nothing dangerous, happened when i was running it.
