Default King Headz 7075 Clutch Shoes

Does anyone have experience with these? I bought a set off Amain due to the King Headz name and good price. Installed with Xray 1.1 springs. They lasted 1.5 tanks! Actually broke up into chunks! I called Amain and they hooked me up and sent another set. Thanks Amain! They didn't have too! Anyway, I installed the new set. Gues what....same chit! Tank and BOOM! peices of clutch shoe falling out. I ran a new bell with a shim kit and new bearings. In fact it was all new down to the flywheel. Keep in mind, inbetween sets I ran a set of used Mugens I had and ran for days with no problem. I don't think it was anything I did. This not the first set of shoes I've installed. Did I just get 2 bunk sets of shoes or what?

Did you buy the right shoes for the clutch setup your using, why are you using 1.1 springs. I run the k.h shoes on my mugen buggy with 1.0 springs and get over a gallon out of them, look at your clutch something has to be binding.

I use them all the time & find them to be very good. I would also say 1.0 springs would be better but that should not have caused that kind of failure.

I have them on my 8ight and love them, and they last forever. I have already got about 3 gallons out of mine with minimal wear.
