Default ofna clutch springs

Hi All,

I am putting a new RB Worlds C6 in my MBX5 Prospect. I went to the local hobby store to get some new clutch shoes and springs. I got the Mugen aluminum clutch shoes, but they did not have the Mugen 1.0 clutch springs. All they had was ofna clutch springs. Are those clutch springs ok for racing with my Mugen. Or should i just order the 1.0 springs and wait?

Thanks...

I cant compare the feel, as I have never used the Mugens. I have always used OFNA's with 0 problems. I too use the 1.0

but i don't even know if they are 1.0's... It just says Ofna Clutch Springs. The look a little bulky to me.

Black are 1.0 Gold are 1.1 mm
there you go.

I used Ofna Springs in my Go Tech and fragged one set every qualifying round and fragged the carbon shoes that i bought with them, the black 1.0mm

Chucked Mugen Blue shoes with 1.1 springs been sweet ever since.
