    problem

    What was the problem when the car starts off the ground but it dont on the ground? I read it somewhere but forgot. Hopefully it wont be clutch spring cause i spend lil bit more than half gallon with the car.

    RE: problem

    those mip springs are not tight enough and the car wants to move foreward unless at a very low idle, almost stalling idle. the 4146x is a tighter spring and doesnt want to launch foreward.

    RE: problem

    5/16 by 1" is big enough, you may need a bigger screw for the clutch bell, like a 1/4" larger

    RE: problem

    home depot has the tension pin and they may have the longer screw, if not you local hobby store will. its not that hard, i had it cut and put together in a few minutes, i cut the pin with my dremel.

    RE: problem

    yes they come 1" or 3/4", you only need like 1/4", i got the 1 inch so there was more to hold on to and a little extra in case you make a mistake, it comes with 2 pins in a package, they only cost like a $1 the most. its easy to do.

    RE: problem

    Yeah it sounds easy but 17/22 was really easy for me, plug and play. But this one alot of stuff going on. Hopefully i wont mess it up.

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...85&FVPROFIL=++ you think this one is worth it? Any benefit?

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...86&FVPROFIL=++ any down sides other than high stall?

    RE: problem

    the more expensive one is better, the springless one has to high of a stall rate and i am not too crazy about it, it does work though.

    RE: problem

    I have the racing clutch for my buggy and I absolutely love it. You will be very happy with it I guarantee. I have put a least 15 tanks in it, hardly to no wear on it at all.

    RE: problem

    Should get the HPI A886, it's what I have and has two sets of the spring/tension clips.

    Gold = high stall rate
    Black = standard stall rate

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...86&FVPROFIL=++

    The HPI A885 is a good set too (but still has a wrap around spring) adjustable stall rate by cutting the clutch shoes.
