    RE: Avalanche xp clutch bell question

    Ive had that happen on my earthquake, i switched to a different motor, and i think the shaft was a tad shorter cause when i would tighten it, it would tighten the clutch bell too. But i ened up swappin flywheels from my hurricane and it worked. Because there are two different flywheels, one is thinner and the other thicker. The clutch shoes might be too big or something.

    RE: Avalanche xp clutch bell question

    Hey no problem man glad i could help. I was going crazy wondering why it was doing that haha. Try tuning your low speed needle. Set it at factory which is i think 2.5 or 3 turns out from all the way in, and then lean it out in small increments till you get a quick accel with no hesitation.
