I got a hpi baja 5b with a clutch issue, possibly. it starts but at idle, both low and high idle, the truck wants to roll as in the clutch is engaged at idle. it has a veritigo clutch. with engine off the car will roll freely. spring is there, bell house is true round, and everything is looks like new. I just bought this car used. how tight do the bolts on the clutch shoes have to be?.

clutch bolts should be tight. the issue might be since it free rolls once the car is off is that the spring is stretched. which would engage the clutch at a much lower rpm than its suppose to.

i checked the bolts and notice some play. so i tighten them hard. but then the clutch shoes would open but they wouldn't retract at all. so I played around with tightening the bolts to remove the play and still allow the shoes to close. and apparently that fixed it.
