Talking 13T Clutch Bell

I have been waiting for a 13T Clutch bell for well over a month, Do any other brands work with the losi8 clutch? Ofna or Jammin clutch bells maybe?
Thanks

Mugen pins are 0.15mm smaller in diameter. I tried them out and found they caused quite a bit of slop in the rear knuckle....

Default Hmmm

At this point if I change anything it will be the clutch itself, I'm gonna sit back and see what some of the other guys are trying. Right now the losi clutch is awsome compared to others that I have seen. But there is a huge difference with the 13t vs the 14t clutch bell. On fast open tracks I like the 14t on tight tracks with lots of jumps I woud prefer the 13T (just my opinion)

Default pipe, clutchbell, shoes and springs on OS VG .21

I have been reading the forum and you guys can be of help to me in choosing proper clutchbell, pipe, shoes and springs for my OS VG on my 8 buggy.
I currently have on the OSVG an OFNA JP1 pipe with 14 tooth cluthbell. I also have on the buggy M2CRacing clutch shoes, light-medium with one set of gold springs and one set of black springs.
The track is long but with lots of curves and jumps with one 150 ft straight.
I am running the OS VG engine for Sportsmen class which limits you to 3 port and less than $200 engine.
I would like to keep the JP1 pipe but should I go to 13 tooth clutchbell?
Should I go to gold and silver springs or stay at all gold on the 4 shoes?
Thanks,
Rockman

The gold and silver combination will give you smoother acceloration.
For the pipe you might put a short header in your box to make higher RPM. This is a great tuning option.
Is the car getting over all of your obsticals?
