I've abused mine at the track since I've got it.
Have done several rebuilds, but I've really tore it down now.

finally got thru at tgn to place my order going to try some red rear springs at last.

the track layout has been changed with alot of jumps and elevation changes,looking forward to it,should be interesting.getting alot of much needed rain around here,good for track.

also placed an order at ddm for some engine rebuild parts,and his ball end drivers

got alot of work ahead

also ordered up some darksoul goodies cant wait for those,got flywheel and the open clutch carrier and housing.going to install new clutch shoes and spring from ddm .

Not trying to be a downer but that flywheel isn't going to be good in the Texas heat.

Not knocking the ds flywheel but I don't think it was built for off road track use and if I was able to mod a flywheel I'd drill out some of the center and leave the blades as they are or mildly shaved down.

I've used the lightened flywheels in the dunes at Glamis (100 F+ heat) with no problems. You do need to tune your engine accordingly, it's less rotating mass, so the engine will spool faster, and gain about an additional 500rpm, and of course the fins are cut down a bit, but it should still provide plenty of cooling.

I will say that they are a bit more fragile than stock, but we have since reduced the hole size a bit more to give back a little more strength, but I highly recommend Outerwears on the engine case to keep debris out.

Thank you sir!
I got the outerwears cover. Any thoughts on the new filter/cover by Rb concepts I think. Would it restrict air more?
