I just ordered 2 sets. I normally run Jammin silvers. If these feel the same but last a liitle longer I will be very happy.

When will the clutch bells be in stock?

Just got your order Rene, thanks. Please let us know what you think of them. I've been waiting for a while for the full line of bells from Pete in the UK. He might update when they will be in. I'm now stocking everything he comes up with.

On another note... I'm the one who bought your two RC8s off this site about a year ago. Went on a wild ride with them only have one left and it's far from stock.

Guys you will not be dissapointed in the products. The longlife shoes are doing very well not much wear on them. I find they last even longer if you keep them maintained well. The clutch bearings also are very good getting long run time out of them!

I have been running the Answer RC clutch in my 808 for a few weeks now and I am loving it! The shoes are wearing really well and the springs are not showing signs of loosing their strength yet. Give a set a try..you'll like em!

I just ordered 2 sets (for now) of the shoes for my RC8 that I run at a Indoor High bite clay track kind of CRCRC but in IL. I will post results after I get them and run a tank or two.

I have been using Anser-RC Clutch shoes and clutch bell and I must say that they are a great component and I have over a gallon of fuel run on them and they are holding up nice, hardly any wear. I would recommend these clutch shoes to anybody. Just my 2 cents!!!

I just got a set of these shoes and springs. I have a buddy that has been running these and really likes them. I will be running them in a jammin x2 crt with a os speed engine, blue groove track. I am wondering what spring I should start with.

Start with the Silver medium springs. If you dont like how that feels replace 1 silver with 1 black at a time until you get it how you want.

Clutch bells have been a supply problem for the US side for the last few months. I know Pete won't be filling them on my next order so they're at least a month out at this point. I would recommend you move on the shoes and use another manufactor's bell at this point.

Hope this helps.
