That was meant for Integra or whatever he calls himself.

I know, just wanted to humor him.

Its kind of a package deal, comes with a sliding clutch system.

Now honestely speaking, I have no idea what the differience is.

Is that a good kind or a bad kind..

Urg...he wont have a clue how to set up a fioroni or a Werks if he things the Flywheel has "teeth" and dosent even understand the basics behind the whole centrifugal clutch design......IM baffle'd he's kept that Nitrage together for 3 gallons without knowing the basics.

Hey, you'd be surprised. I started RC cars not knowing a thing about RC cars, or anything like that, and now I'm not so bad.

I know the Werks clutch has a higher amount of pressure applied to the clutch bell, and so does the Fioroni clutch, but it has two shoes stacked on top of eachother, not all the way around the flywheel...And the Fioroni uses springs that curl around the shoes, which's why I like the Werks clutch better.

You can be "baffled" all you want.

I wouldnt be here if I knew everything in the world about RC's.

And its 5 FYI.

And I know exactly what im saying, there circular edge of the flywheel is ribbed, mine is nearly dead, rocks have become lodged in there and gashed and goruged it completely.

Lets keep it simple Integra, ill say what I want, dont like it, not my problem. Deal with it.

Id manage with those 2 lol.

As long as I have some idea of what its supposed to look like when its done

revopqrs recommended the same thing I think, not sure tho

Fioroni Turbo Sliding Clutch Flywheel + Nut

And these shoes

Fioroni Carbon (Black) Turbo Sliding Clutch + Clutch Shim.

Ill check what clutch I get when I pick up this .28 XZ, all I know for sure its some sort of sliding clutch system.

The last clutch I had like the Fioroni was the MIP clutch shoes, and you wrap a spring along the outside of those, and the spring came loose and was hanging out of my clutchbell, tearing up my chassis.

I had to trim the servo mount down to get the DS1313 in there, too. And the cable is kind of short. @[email protected]

I had to take a file to my servo mounts to get the DS1313 to fit in there, the mounts were too small. (Square that fits around the servo)

And the cable, to power the servo, is too short, I had to find a new way to route it through my chassis to get it to plug into the receiver, but it fits now, a little tight, though. Almost had it rubbing on my spur gear the first time. Lol.

my airtronics 94359 was the same way, the cord just got to the RX, and the throttle servo I had so much cord I didn't know what to do with it.

Hey guys the fironi clutch is very easy to setup. It also lasts forever with the blue shoes. All you ened to do is shim for your clutch. The werks clutch is a different story way to much adjustability. To be honest though never had a problem with running a normal 3 shoe setup. Carbon shoes and a smooth clean clutch bell are the key to a long lasting good bitting clutch. If you want a cheaper fironi clutch check into this. Yes it is integy but it is pretty much the same, I also heard you can run the blue shoes if you want.

When you get the Werks clutch, be sure to scratch the threads on the adjustable nut and put some blue thread lock on it, and allow it to dry completely (Believe me, it's worth it) :P

O: Awesome. I want a .21 V-Spec. :P Probably gonna save a paycheck one day and buy one. Lol.

Also, put some thread lock on the thing that holds the flywheel down. Can't remember what it's called, but it's the long nut.
