The Indy 600 121 track , doesn't use the same pipe as a AXYS based 600, or the 2010 to 2012 Rush 600's. Several years ago DTR Jim brought this up, but never really pursued it. If you go back in the DTR archives you will see this. 8250 is too high. 7,800 rpm to 8,000rpm Is the Indy 600 powerband. The new Indy XC 600 and Indy XC sp is AXYS based so it is different. 121 sleds are Pro R based

Yep.. 8200rpm's or more, was too much for my 2015 Indy 600.
The closer I got 8000rpm's.. the harder it pulled, and it got faster also.

Recently bought gabes clutch kit for my Indy 600 from an HCS member. Where does the Derlin washer go? Also, does the primary spring need to be oriented a certain way or not (I know to line up the Xs on the primary cover)? Any help is appreciated!

The derlin washer goes under the spring cup in the secondary clutch and no orientation needed on the primary spring,just put it in...
