Are these shoes better than the dynamite long wear shoes? How do you by via paypal? Went to the website and can't figure out what to go to next.

I've had several report they're better than the long wears, but I honestly think it's becuase they come with all the springs and guys can set them up to wear better.

You should have the option for paypal by adding something to your cart. You shouldn't even have to create an account. If you create an account you'll definately have the option. I just checked the site it seems to be OK for me. Please PM me if you're still having problems and I can call you to work through it.

Thanks!

Sorry slaytanic I have the 16T request in but it will take some time... RC8 needs it as well. Ironically I'm runing the 15T on my 808 and love it, you might want to give it a try.


As for not being able to put anything in a shopping cart, you must be on the UK site. Please come over to the US site http://www.answer-rcusa.com/zencart/index.php

I too have been running a 15t but want too go back too 16 or maybe 17 in certain areas. My local track is wide open, long and loose dirt.

I went ahead and ordered a 15t and some other stuff. What spring would you recommend for the 808?

I would start with 1.0 (silver) springs. Feed back I'm getting is all the springs are a little on the stiff side. I'm runng the 808 flywheel on one of my 808s and the RC8 flywheel on the other. The RC8 clutch seems a tad more responsive, but it could just be the motor as well.

I am not going to read the last 4 pages of reviews but my review is the Answer - rc shoes - clutch bells and springs are awesome. Anyone who is considering trying them it is well worth it.

Noticed today when setting up my clutch that the silver springs didnít have enough bend at the end of the spring. I went a head and added a little more bend to it, if not I would think there would be premature ware on the springs touching the clutch bell. It seemed to be only that silver springs, gold and black springs where ok.

You're the second person to point this out (had one at the track the other day), sorry for the slight inconisitancy. Sounds like you found the quick work around; however, if you PM me your information I will send a replacement set of springs.

Thanks!
