This one has everything minus bell, if you want to use the Losi bell.

I would also recommend getting some alum shoes, if you want plenty of clutch snap.

thanks for the info. Will this set up make a big difference in performance or is it more for saving a little money and durability ?

Can't make any claim on performance or durability. If you own the Losi setup and don't have any three shoe stuff you're probably not saving any money.

I know one of the quick change mounts (not sure which brand) has additional mounting holes. I know that these holes can be used instead of shimming the collet to get the clutch extended out.

Are you referring to the use of the Answer-RC clutch on the z01b? I believe it uses the standard three shoe design, but I'm not aware of anyone using them on that buggy. I would love to some feedback, but I imagine the results will be similar as other buggys.


Akhor

I will PM when the Losi stuff lands. Thanks much!

Mike I tried to run your clutch shoes on my 8T 2.0 and the shoe pins seemed to not let the shoe to move freely like it was binding or did not return back to its normal resting position. Is this a problem that usually occurs or did do some user error?

The king headz quick change engine mount has the regular and losi mounting options.

100% not your fault Frank. Fit the shoes without springs first to insure proper clearance with the clutch pin threads coming through the top of the flywheel. Losi has several different versions of the flywheel and on some the top is thinner, so the threads might catch or bind the shoe. If you find the thread from the pin catches the shoe just use a drill bit to relive the area a bit more.

Bump for the best deal on clutch shoes around!

Mike, can't wait till MRH starts carrying these. They're going to sell like hotcakes.

I have been running the complete answer clutch kit on my mbx6 buggy for about a week now and have managed to put half a gallon of fuel through it. I am going to put a full gallon through the clutch and further report my findings but so far I am impressed. The shoes show very little wear and grab very good. The clutch bell shows to be wearing good also. I was very happy that the spacing of the clutch aligned perfectly on my buggy. No major shimming was required and the clutch bell and spur gear make full contact. So far a great clutch.

The set I'm running now has almost 2 gallons on them and still have another race day left easy. Of course .9 springs help a lot with shoe wear.
