doesn't the RTR kit come with a 2 shoe clutch period? Not a four shoe clutch like the Pro Kit version.

It is the same clutch/flywheel. The RTR is only equiped with two shoes. You need a shoe set, some springs and some of those little screws.
I would recommend the KH 7075 shoes, gold and green springs and a set of carbon shoes.
