Mardi Gras are still able to supply the Helix Organic, a great clutch but super expensive in comparison to CG kits, worth the money though as I run both the organic and paddle with high torque builds with no slippage.
I had a Helix Organic clutch that coped with my modified car. BPH was 360 but can recall the more important torque figure but was substantial. Not sure if these clutches are still available? Had an uprated CG clutch on my re-mapped Stilo 2lt diesel and it was fine, so think they are okay.
I thought I had diligently removed all persistent creaks and rattles but I had a very annoying creak coming from the drivers seat. It basically only happens when the back is forced back, but was quite loud and happened over every large bump and sway of the car. Took the panels off the seat and wd40'd everything in sight that could have caused it, to no avail. Spent a couple of hours on it, scratching my head.
Finally discovered one of the front bolts that hold the seat down was slightly loose. The seat was basically moving here and rubbing near the bolt. Soon fixed it then!
The other minor issue was that the lumber support adjustment was mostly ineffective. In my investigations of the creak I took the back off and discovered the fixing that holds the adjustment wire had broken away from the seat frame on the right, meaning the wire was too loose. No way of fixing it but folded a towel and placed it behind the wire to tighten it just enough....as it tightens it forces the seat middle forward via a runner. Very simple fix and works a treat!
I race RC cars and have had a few of these shells.
I painted the first one yellow and used it as a racing shell for a while. To be honest the shell isn't too good for racing
I have another painted in flip blue - green and it regularly lives in the boot of my Coupé.
The shell comes as a 190mm wide so doesn't really suit Nitro cars. It's a bit of a tight fit on most nitros as they normally require 200mm shells.
I have my shell fitted to my old Schumacher Mi2EC racing chassis. I have also run them on the early Schumacher Mission and it is this chassis I would reccomend. They are tough and reliable and as Schumacher are a UK company, getting parts for them is really easy too. Most model shops stock parts but you can also order direct.
The original mission chassis was hugely reliable and Schumacher have recently re-launched it as the Mission 1
I just bought a Mission FT, not finished building it yet. I've never had an on road car before but there is an awesome race track not far aware so thought I would give it a go. A Coupe body would be awesome.
