Im sorry but every damn thread you post in you act like you are a sponsered factory team driver. And yet I have never once heard of your name in any magazine or R/C companys factory driver list.

Obviously you dont know your stuff as well as you think.

I own four sets of fioroni clutches on my Truggy and two buggies and have one spare, one clutch is close to four years old with the same shoes.
4 YEARS!!!! With the same shoes?!?! Holy Chit, howd u manage that?

[QUOTE=PhillyB;4755440]Well the only one I have been running for a real long time was the 4 shoe 'unlimited engineering' clutch, which wa...QUOTE]

1) I havn't read the entire thread so if someone already responded to this, please forgive me.
2) Let me toss yet another vote out for the M2C clutch. Awesome stuff. I have at least, started the 3rd this past w/end, two Gal on my current set up and still has plenty of life in it. Also, as Joe already suggested, I am running 4 Hard Regs with two .95s/two .9s.
3) Don't take this as gospel, but from what I understand, you can pretty much consider Mitch's current 4 shoe system an evolution of sorts, of the UE system. It is my understanding that Mitch is pretty much THE MAN behind a majority of the early UE products. There was a difference of opinion and Mitch chose to part ways with UE and go out on his own. I could be wrong on all of this, but I am 98% sure this is what I have read in the past.

Well you know what they say about rice grinders, there like tampons every vagina needs one. Lol

If he wants to take it that far I will haul my camaro down to his track behind my truck and after I beat him into the dirt at the RC track we will take it to the dragstrip and find out how much "chit" he knows abou that.

I got my money on the Acura all day ... It's 2008... WAKE UP!

Stock for Stock...Mod for Mod.... The Camaro will get killed... Do the HP to Weight ratio.

You are either misinformed, or more sarcastic than I am.

This is an argument for a different forum, and a different guy.. I know what I've done/seen JUST over the past ten years of street and drag racing.

Now, assuming that both cars are the top models and both people can shift gears properly...

2001 camaro ss
Displacement = 5.7L
HP = 325
Torque = 350 ft-lbs
Weight = 3300 lbs
HP-Weight = 1:10.84

2000 integra type r
Displacement = 1.8L
HP = 195
Torque = 130 ft-lbs
Weight = 2640 lbs
HP-Weight = 1:13.5

There you have it. The amount of smoke and dust created by the camaro would just make the integra not want to race.

Just felt the need to clarify that.

Well, I don't know too much about American muscle as I'm more of and import car type. Nissan R34 and Audi R8... mmmmmmmmmmm... Then you just need to upgrade the brains, to watermelon sized turbines and a few other things... and there you have it.. 1k hp. But enough on one of my future cars, back to the clutch issue.

I use the Fioroni sliding clutches and do notice a little loss of bottom end but i'm only using one soft spring. But once it revs up, away it goes. Going to put in 1 hard spring tomorrow.
