    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    have any of you guys who upgraded the clutch still have problems with the car not shifting and gettin stuck in 1st or 2nd gear? or is the upgrade to the clutch simply to stop the clutch bell from stripping the gears and a slight performance enhancement?

    i was thinkin of just switchin to a single speed transmission and not havin to worry about the car getting stuck in 1st or 2nd gear.

    any opinions? or suggestions?

    Double check your gear mesh and use blue lock tite to keep screws from vibrating loose

    the best way is to come up threw the bottom of the chassis. you can remove the handle temporarily to get better access

    RE: CLUTCH BELL AND CLUTCH SPRING UPGRADES

    I'm running into clutch issues on my EQ with the aluminum shoes dragging. I cleaned them up with a file and replaced the spring with a new one I think it will work for a while... I was wondering if anyone has found a good replacement shoe or a complete clutch replacement for the sh .21. 
    Thanks.
    If you are not breaking it, you are not driving it. And if you are not driving it, you are just looking at it. !!DRIVE HARD!!

    ORIGINAL: ehroof

    This setup from hpi will eliminate the spring all together:
    hpi #A886:http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXVK12&P=7
    Will those work on a Caldera 3.0?
    It's a SH .18 Engine.
