I use the steel flywheel on the buggy and dont have this problem. Also, for the pind if you are running the 2comp/2al shoe rotate the pins and they will last a very long time.

With the m2c clutch setup can you run normal clutchbells also do you have to flip your motor mounts?

I'm not sure which mount is is but there is one out there that allows this. Be careful though, it does not provide a solution for the decrease of clearance between the carb and the center diff mount, which is already very close.

I installed Dynamite extened life aluminum clutch shoes on my 8-t and opened up the clutch after 3/4 to 7/8 of a gallon. To my surprise they are toast. When I mic'd them they were at 21.07 mm. I read that below 23mm it's time to replace them, and they looked worn no noticable driving problems.

Does it sound like normal wear, or should I get more than 3/4 - 7/8 of a gallon out of these shoes?

Same thing for me. Three sets of Max-lifes on three different vehicles. All toasted after the second weekend. Mine measured between 22.9 and 23.3 I'll stick with the 7075 KH which I can at least dress up and use again. I usually go 2 gallons minimum with the KH shoes and maintenance.
