24 gram flywheel with 2 green 2 gold springs and top that off with kingheadz 7075 shoes and you have a perfect clutch.

Werks clutch is most probably a great option but a big outlay for much the same performance as the king headz shoes on the LOSI clutch....

yea i would stick with a stock clutch. other wise you have to either 1) shim the crap outta behind the flywheel, or 2) use a kingheadz mount and reverse it which will move the motor forward and change the handling.

personally i feel the losi clutch setup is the best thing to hit 1/8th scale ever lol. so easy to work on and the kingheadz 7075's make it last forever. and the enlarged inner bearing is just awesome.

+1 on the stock clutch. I check it after every race. 2 gallons on it, and bearings are still free as a bird

I personally prefer the stock clutch setup over the all metal kingheads setup,albiet it wears quicker its far more linear and feels much better to me
