Try useing some .9 springs on your next set
of clutch shoes. I had the same problem when
I ran my .28. The .9 springs will let the shoes
lock sooner and they won't slip at hi r.p.m.'s.
Also, try the Dynamite long life shoes,they
don't cost as much and last.

what do you mean by destroying clutch shoes? like excessive wear or the shoes literally break?
