    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    the torque tuned pipe for the nitro TC3 is what i've run almost exclusively in my off road small block cars. that pipe works EXCELLENT with the VX series engines. you'll see a gain with the RPM tuned pipe, but not as much of one, since the VX doesn't rely as much on revs to make power as a typical .12 does.

    I'm saying both the associated pipes are good, just the torque tuned pipe would have better for your application. both will make more power than the Redcat aluminum pipe

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    I'm usin the teflon shoes but they were a lot taller than the stockers so I ground them down. Somebody said that you can just leave the E-clip off but I didn't want to do it that way so I cut em down till they were same as the stockers. I got a HPI clutchbell and the teflon shoes and both seem to work just fine. I cant say they have made the buggy perform any better but I really really like those wire type springs. I couldnt take another broken wrap around[:@]

    These parts fit the 1/10 single speed buggy (himoto calls it a cyclone) with the .18 engine. I dont know if they will fit any other type of redcat/himoto so beware!!

    HPI Part # A990 is the bell

    HPI part # A886 is the shoes

    Just noticed that this is all in the first post of the thread... good job me [sm=49_49.gif]

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    Great thread, used this just this past weekend to help my bro-in-law replace his clutch spring that snapped within 3 hours of opening the box after receiving it.

    Does anyone recommend using these MIP springs - http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXUR89&P=7 as they are alot cheaper than buying the Traxxas 4146 when all you can use is the spring and not the shoes.

    I'd like to keep a couple spare springs on hand in case either of us have failures in the future.

    Another question, would moving up to this HPI clutchbell - http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLST9&P=7 help too?

    Last one, on the exhaust pipes on the Redcats or other similar Himoto's, do they all have the return line connection for the fuel tank like my stock one does?

    Thank you,

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    the mip springs are fine, definately get the clutch bell the stock ones are out of round and will strip the spur gear, all nitro cars have the return line, this pushes the fuel to the engine by making pressure in the tank.

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    Thanks ehroof, I will be ordering a few MIP springs, and the HPI vented clutch bell housing.

    At a later date I will look at upgrades for the exhaust pipe, unless you think it'd be good to get it sooner rather than later as well?

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    Since I am upgrading the clutch bell housing, should I keep the stock aluminum or upgrade the clutch bell shoes to teflon?

    That there is priceless advice, I am going to be sure and inform my bro-in-law as well since he has the same rig I do, only a different color and he already replaced his broken clutch spring. Thanks again!

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    Well my clutch spring went on me yesterday (along with other things that were my fault ) ... I am so glad that I found this site/forum and have already ordered my parts the other day. Waiting on springs and new clutch bell housing, my bro-in-law who already had to replace his spring notices that his truck performs better with the Traxxas 4146 spring, could this be possible? Just replacing the spring with a better one yield better performance?

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    My MPI spring went on me, after just a couple runs ... I noticed when installing it that it was not as firm as the Traxxas 4146 spring.

    Anyway, my clutch shoes are pretty scored up in spots and one even came off of its pin rather easily ...

    I thought they were not supposed to just slide off of their pins with that e-clip on there?

    Does the e-clip need to be lined up a certain way? Could that be part of the spring problem I seem to have?

    Will the clutch shoes that come with the Traxxas 4146 work?

    Should I get new clutch shoes or just smooth mine out some?

    Thank you!

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    the traxxas shoes are too small so they wont work. Make sure when you put the sping on that the clasp is not near where the shoes open or meet, it should be in the center of the clutch shoe. i would say buy new shoes. try the traxxas shoes and see how they work.
