    Clutchbell ?

    Hey guys! If i go up to a higher tooth clutchbell, will I have to also change the spurgear that I use? For instance, right now im using a 16 tooth clutchbell and a 44 tooth spurgear. If I go up to say a 17 or 19 tooth clutchbell what spurgear would I have to change to if any at all? Thanks guys. Arlin.

    you should be ok with a bigger clutch bell, i am running a volcano with an 18 tooth clutch bell and the stock gearing. what car are you running it in? tornado? if so you'll be ok, if its the truck and you have that 44 tooth and an 18 tooth, it will have good top end but be a pig on take off, it will be too high geared.

    RE: Clutchbell ?

    Hey man, my LHS sucks! They never have anything I need! I ended up getting a 16 tooth clutchbell but when I tried to put it on, it was little snug. It doesnt spin freely like the other. I guess that mean its a NO-GO huh?

    so you could spin it freely with no resistance at all? Mine wouldn't make it 3 revolutions around before it would stop!

    It depends on how your gears line up, you need 100% contact-preferrably in the middle of your clutch bell. I have 3 hurricanes and have ran a 13 tooth all the way up to a 20 tooth, and never messed with the hight. Just make sure you purchase a "hardened vented racing clutch bell" if you have the steel spur gears, the other ones strip too easy.

    try the one on the inside first and see how that works out.


    there are no steel spur gears for the 1/10ths that we know of

    Im not sure if mine are aluminum. They're white in color and are flexible. My car is just the basic tornado XL single speed.

    maybe you have a new upgraded version, the new cars are supposed to have new clutch shoes, spring and clutch bells, steel ones.
