    hook the spring together, put around clutches, then put clutches on flywheel, its kinda hard to get the spring around the shaft of the engine if you leave the clutches in not to mention you can mess the spring up by stretching it out.

    RE: Clutch Slice- Quick Question

    its not your fault, its a design flaw with the redcat springs, i hope you bought the traxxas 4146 or 4146x spring.

    ps: its actually a clutch shoe not slice even though the manual says that, if you got to a hobby store and ask for a clutch slice with spring they would laught you out of the store.

    RE: Clutch Slice- Quick Question

    i dont know about the spring, but i would suggest getting the traxxas 4146x, it comes with shoes but i would use the old redcat shoes just put the traxxas spring around them. it will way outlast the redcat spring. i have had it in my volcano for 20 tanks.

    You should be able to find the Traxxas spring (or ANY better spring) at your LHS...just take it in and compare.

    RE: Clutch Slice- Quick Question

    yeah my "LHS" just closed down. They had horrible service anyway. Never had ANY parts in, and it cost me alot of money for them to install 2 parts a while ago..which i can do now,but was new at the time.

    RE: Clutch Slice- Quick Question

    yeah they are great... no way they can run out of nitro :P
    the only thing is that it takes 5-6 days for my orders to arrive...
    I hear they 've been around for a loooong time right?

    RE: Clutch Slice- Quick Question

    Hey DiTi, I live in S.E. Mass. and I don't have any LHS close to me. There used to be a HobbyTown in the Hanover Mall but no more. That was about 15 miles away but it was worth the drive. Now I have to order all my parts, including fuel and plugs online. It sucks but there is nothing I can do about it.

    LOL in the new Volcano manual it's a clutch CHIP

    But, yeah, what ehroof said...use the traxxas clutch spring 4146 or 4146X...I had a clutch spring break on a Tornado BB this weekend[:@]
