I have heard that the King Headz 7075 shoes are excellent too. I bet these are similar.

King headz shoes are great, its just finding the right spring combo for me was the pain. Im back using the 3 shoe clutch cause im used to it. I really like the 3 shoe the best, but i would like to know how the Fironi turbo sliding cluthes are.

I'm currently running the Ferioni turbo sliding clutch in my 8 on an S5 & S7. It works great with these motors but you need to run all 3 of the harder springs. This clutch did not work as well on the C6 as I could not get a late enough enguagment. It bogged the C6 a little even with the harder springs. On the C6 I'm running a Mugen clutch with aluminium shoes.

I'm also running the King Headz shoes. They perform very well, and have proven to be pretty durable. I have about 4 races on them, and they still look very good.

I am also using the Fioroni Turbo slider and the RMV 3. it seems at least on our dirt the slider works better with the Teflon shoes and or the split shoes I got them from Again they have a good selection of split shoes as well as different compounds for the Fioroni.

FreeFallmarine you should try the Fioroni if you like the 3 shoe clutch setups. I ran it last summer and had good luck with it. It's pretty much maintainence free and has good engagement. I tried the Losi softer shoe setup with 4 kingheadz Sunday and it engaged too early for my liking. So I think I'll go back to the stock springing and try that...

I never tried the 4 shoe Fioroni but I know my buddy did and liked it alot. I like the Losi clutch so much I sold most of my Fioroni and 3 shoe stuff to my buddy...

I have the set of King Headz aluminum shoes to go with the clutch you sent me. I just want the Dynamite to eventually try, but yeah my 8ight is already bulletproof.lol. Well actually its not gonna be bulletproof until I send it to you. I think Im gonna run the Losi clutch on the RG and the Mugen or Werks on the GO. One thing at a time.lol. I just cant get enough of this buggy.
