LOL, WOW, I actually have the exact same clutch shoe setup. I just got the shoes in the mail, still waiting on the springs! Im using a 18T and 12T clutch though.

I use the Losi ones, which are the same thing, with 1.1 springs on my LST2. Going on all most 2 gallons through them with no problems. You wont regret buying them.

same setup here on my Mugen. Though they do slip a little more than the stock aluminum shoes, they last 2-3 times as long as the stockers. also, they allow you to do away with the shim under the shoes, whoch, IMO, makes the flywheel last that much longer. I will never buy different shoes for car...unless conditions warrant carbons.

Slipping slightly more or a lot more? Or just noticeably more?

well, they don't slip to the point that you will say "damn, these shoes are slipping" ...so i guess you would say they don't slip THAT much more...lol. They are ALOT harder than regular 6061 or 7075 shoes.

Yeah, I have a .28 LRP in a buggy, it goes pretty damn good too, almost too much power, impossible for the tires to hook up.

I've been engine shopping lately. A friend of mine has the LRP 28 and that thing is a rocket. So it's being considered in my top 3 selections so far.

They are harder then 6061, but they cant be harder then 7075 since they are 7075 I work with 7075 aluminum its great stuff.
