I am also running 4 KHZ 7075 w/ 2silver,2gold and its sweet!!

Is the shock bottom caps revised? They look different than the ones I have.

Yo houston, how long did it last with the all carbon with green springs and how did it engage?

The Werks clutch takes the standard long collet and the Losi clutch takes the US short collet like used on the gas trucks.
Make sure the collet fits well before you try to install and it should be fine.

nobike: the carbon shoes wear great as long as you spring em right and use the losi clutch bell !! the engagement is best suited for 5 port engines on slightly duffy track or wet loose dirt tracks , wouldnt use this setup for indoor tracks or bluegroove tracks as it would probably accelerate wear profusely !!! king headz 7075 are my favorite fersure !!! you can also try all gold springs on khz shoes , easier on the shoes just a lil less punch . you know what sucks , i know a few high profile team drivers and call em regularly and they still wont admit to using anything but the box stock clutch setup !!! there are alot of ways to setup your clutch , find what works best for your track , driving style , car , and throttle finger !!!!LOLOLOL !

Dynamite had the shoes out for a couple weeks. I have a set, but haven't tried them. I hear they don't hit as hard as four KHZ 7075 and feels a little like carbon shoes.

I think I've posted this before.

Try the stock shoe setup with one step softer springs. Blue shoes with gold springs and carbon shoes with greens. I've been running this for a long time now and I think the added driveability of the softer springs will help a lot of people drive smoother.

This is the same clutch setup I've been running as well, works great

Can anyone explain to me the advantage of running two different color springs with the same KH 7075 shoes. I've run two different springs with two different types of clutch shoes, but never different springs on the same same shoes. I'm looking to switch from the stock losi clutch to one with either 2 or 4 KH 7075 shoes. Also, I'm currently running an RB C3 because both my S7's need bearings and I've been lazy. Anybody have any spring/shoe suggestions for a budget powerplant. Thanks JB

I just put the #6521 Werks clutch I had laying around from my truggy in my 8 buggy. I used the stock Losi collet and it seems to tighten up nicely. Using the stock Losi bell this set up fits perfectly. I haven't tried it out yet however. I hope I don't have a problem with the collet slipping.
