No problems with my rmv clutch, however I hear alot of people rave about the werks/orion/fioroni and the shoe life they get, but adjusting them can be quite tedious.

what vehicle are you in need of a new clutch for? I can tell you from experience both the Fioroni Adjustable and all versions of the Fioroni Turbo Sliding clutch are very good for buggy or truck/truggy. For buggy, the Twin Turbo black shoes are very good, and for truggy, I would go with the adjustable or twin turbo black with optional stiff springs installed.
Fioroni also has 2 new 'traditional' style 3 and 5 shoe clutches. PM me for more info if you want details on all the clutches.

I use the older turbo slider (not the tiwn) on one of my buggy motors. I like a late clutch. When the shoes are new I use 3 hard springs. As the shoes get smaller the clutch starts to enguage later. When I notice this, I replace one of the hard springs with a soft one & continue that until the shoes are gone. The shoes last a very long time & cb bearings seem to last a little longer on this clutch as well. I have also used the RMV speed II. It's shoes last a long time also.
