i have been looking at it waiting to see if people will like it ...if i havent seen any good or bad im planning on runnning one on my next 8th scale buggy ...i think by the looks and explanations of it on amain it should be a winner ..and its hard to beat fioroni for quality ... i have been running there turbo slide clutches for at least a year and they work great ......

I have used the werks clutch with good results, but I'm with Integra on the cost of the FIORONI VARIO 3..a bit pricey..I like the 4 shoe clutch from M2C Racing more..cheaper, less to go wrong..not quite as tunable but you still have options on tuning..

imo the M2C is by far 1 of the best 4 shoe alum setups out there....No questions asked.

you will never get the "snap" that your trying to achieve with spring rate.......the alum grabs just that much harder.....but i guess it depends if your running on a Hard Pack clay with Holeshot's....or a Loose Loomy surface with varying surface's and Bowtie's/Crimefighter style tread's.
