Can someone tell me I have a dbxl with a g 32 zenoth motor installed today. after 5 min of running it seemed to be slipping and made a noise . Is it the clutch cy clutch red spring .Or I think it's spinning on the crankshaft is this possible any one had this before ( the clutch bell was hot also I don't think the losi dbxl has a slipper clutch ? But I'm not sure. can't see one

Hi andrew
I would open it up could be the clutch spring , id did not think it could go coz the look pretty tough but they do go south. best way to find the issue is to open and look. How you finding the 32? My rig has a stock G320R cant complain she flys:D(y)

G'day dougsr how's things mate the motor is mad brother this is what it needed just me mate hopeless with no knowledge yet so it's sucks . I red loctite on The clutch plate on the original change over from the 23 zenoth and it started slipping after 5 min then I tried removing the clutch plate and snapped the screw in crankshaft. Then put a new crankshaft in and started again. The motor is tuff but I can't workout what is going on with the clutch plate do thay normally slip or do I need better clutch.
G'day crew. just thought I'd let you
Know. I have booked in for my first race this Sunday ? Hope the g32 dbxl can handle

Bit far for me to go watch so good luck with it.
Rain stopped last weekend.
Hopefully you'll have better weather on your next visit.

start by closing the screw all the way but don't tighten just till it stops. take note of were the screw stops work your way from there.
let us know how you get on(y)
