What buggy do you run? You have a lot of very good setups on the market today.

If you run the losi "I feel" the losi is the best for that car. IT's 4 shoe and when done properly will last you a long time.

I'll list some pretty good aftermarket set ups for you.

This one is really good, and offers a lot of tuning options. If your new just stick with soft shoes and maybe the 1.0 springs.

This one seems to suit new racers as it is pretty straight forward.

+1 Alan gives good advice.
M2C makes the most adjustable clutch on the market, wear is phenominal when you get the proper set up for your engine and buggy/truggy.
Mitch is a great guy to deal with, and he can help you choose the right set up.

I thought I would throw a couple more in the mix. Options are always a good thing.

Dynamite - Max-Life
These are great shoes and the price is fine. They make a set for the 8ight,RC8, and standard.

King Headz - 7075

I have used both of these products and both last and perform very well.

I personally like a Mugen flywheel, Dynamite max-life shoes, Kyosho springs, and Mugen or Racers Edge clutch bell.

scrappy, yep I'll be there. Gonna be cold and fun


All of the clutches listed here now are good ideas. We just need to know your buggy, engine, track conditions. Then we can dial you in

On buggy I prefer either a full set of carbon shoes with 1.0mm springs or Dynamite Max Life shoes with two 1.0mm and one .9mm spring.

On truggy I prefer a full set of Dynamite Max Life shoes with 1.0mm springs.

It's basically personal preference a lot of times. I like my buggies to be smooth engaging and my truggies to have a little more snap.

Like Alan said once you tell everyone what vehicle it will be used in and the type of engine and track surface you will get more detailed help.....

I'd like to include a vote for answer Rc clutch shoes. I got a set about a week ago. They are as long lasting as the max-life, they come with off set bevels, so you dont need the little shims, and they include 3 sets (9) springs. All for less than most other shoes alone. So far I am very happy with mine.

Also the Fioroni Turbo-sliding Clutch was my favorite of all time. Install, and maintanence is a brezze. has adjustable bite, and 3 different compound of shoes. The 2 downsides are that the flywheel is tiny, making starting more difficult, and it is not a cheep clutch set-up
