I was looking at getting anoher R 30 cause I LIKE THEM..
I checked into prices. I would be better off to by a R 50
with the extra improved parts.
Does the R 50 have clutch problems like the R 30 ??
Does it use the same bell and clutch ??
Thanks in advance
Fred..

Fred,

Definitely go with the 50. I have both and love the 50. My 50 kit came with a modified clutch bell. These modified clutch bells are available seperately as well. Hope this helps.

What is the part no for the modified clutch bell.

I am having problems with the clutch in my R50. I have the HD clutch with a stock bell with a shimmed rappy liner and I think it is slipping. I had a thick Kyosho C60 liner that wore 1/2 through in only 25 flights. I do have a very tight fit (.005 clearance) but I think it is wearing again.

d-n-jensen,

It is the same part # as the original clutch bell. I believe once the old stock is gone, this will be the only one available. You can tell the difference between the two this way. The modified clutch bell has a groove engraved around the outside circumference of the clutch bell. I purchased my spare @ Heliproz.

Thanks for the info

Do you know if the ID and/or OD of the bell is different?

The ID is smaller but I don't have the exact specs.
