RMV Speed 3 Automatic Clutch (1134 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, August 10, 2005 - 12:11 AM


This clutch has taken the 1/8 buggy scene by storm, winning many major races in Europe during the prototype testing phases.  Now it's available to you!

This clutch is a standard 3-shoe setup for maximum shoe contact area, and accepts RMV and Mugen clutch springs and shoes.  What sets this clutch apart is that it works in two stages:

Stage 1:  Like a conventional clutch, centrifugal force makes the clutch shoes push against the springs to contact the clutch bell.

Stage 2:  When a certain torque point is reached and the shoes are fully engaged, the spring-loaded flywheel actually extends the clutch shoe engagement to give the clutch shoes even more solid contact with the clutch bell.  The result is increased clutchbell RPM and minimal clutch shoe shipping!

You can use harder springs for a late engagement, and the stage 2 action prevents the heat generating slippage that many late engageing setups have.  Aluminum clutch shoes are used often in conventional, as they are resistant to the slipping that occurs at high RPMs.  Now you can use Carbon shoes and get even better results!

The Speed 3 clutch comes complete with a set of RMV Carbon Clutch shoes, and a set of 1.0 springs.  Add a clutch bell and bearings, and you're ready to go!

Note on using Speed 3 w/ Mugen clutch bells:

Mugen bells have an inner diameter of 26.0 mm vs RMV/kyosho bells which have 26.3 mm. The Speed 3
is configured for the larger diameters. If you use a mugen bell it will engage earlier.  You can use Mugen 1.1 springs to compensate for the earlier
