Hey Nano!

When do you think we will see them in the US? We are racing the Nats in a couple of weeks. Do you think there will be any there to be used. How has testing been going? Let me know. When are you coming to the US again?

Yeah that's the CRF V6 off-road clutch, it works great for 1/8 off-road and monster trucks. There is also are a variety of tuning parts available, like springs and shoes made out of different materials, all of this to fine tune the clutch.

The clutch is highly wear resistent, so you'll be able to go through a lot of gallons of fuel before you need to replace any parts.

The trick about it is that there is no forward movement of the clutch shoes when it engages, this way you are not putting mechanical stress on the clutch bell bearings.

Engine ran great throughout the race. Unfortunately a car related technical problem caused Adrien to retire from the race...

Yes the clutch has been avalible for some time now. I know tower hobbies and stormer hobbies have them. I been debating testing one out, but haven't heard anything on them good or bad.
