Default Answer-RC High Bite Low Wear clutch shoes

Hey Guys - just to let you know that the shoe sets are now available - you can read the blurb on the website if you wish http://answer-rc.com/news.php?id=27

We are looking for a distributor over in the US at the moment.

These shoes are superb and offer excellent value as well. Each set comes with 3 spring sets included as well. There is also a RC8 set which I have yet to photo.

Ok I have paypal I want to try a few sets for my 8ight buggy.
But the website is a bit confusing. can I order off the website.
I would like to see the differences between these and the dynamite maxlifes

Looks like a nice shoe.

Hey guys -

The website is just a shop window rather than for direct sales, we tend to go through retailers in the UK and are looking for distributors elsewhere. We bellieve in supporting the guys who support us. For now though any guys in the US whom wish to try them just drop me a mail at sales@answer-rc.com and we will take care of you.

The exchange rate at the mo ia abround 1.8$USD:1GBP.

The 4 shoe one is indeed for losi, the 3 shoe fits pretty much all the normal 3 shoe clutch systems.

Each set comes with 3 sets of springs
0.9mm Gold
1.0mm Silver
1.1mm Black
This is regardless of if they are 3 shoe, Losi or RC8 but obviously they all come with the correct springs.

Heres some more pics for you all. RC8 ones to follow

RC8 Shoes added now ;-)
They also have the small machined washer to lift them proud of the flywheel.

WOW that's awesome that your able to deliver a set of shoes and springs for less than the cost of just the aluminum shoes for the losi. I really hope you can find a US distributor i'd really like to try these because they fit my budget

Im working hard to be fair with the pricing. We are relatively small and can keep costs our end down. we dont have a 50,000 sqft warehoise and a staff of 500 to support. We are small and nimble and can focus on a smaller product range trying to do justice to each item.

Any of the US guys who want to try them drop me a mail. The more of you that run them and bug your LHS to stock them the better ;-)
Until we get a distributor we can supply you guys or your LHS.

Pete
