Default Truggy clutches..

i run an xt8, and mostly use the xray clutches. on slick tracks i even like to run carbon shoes with 1.0 springs. i have learned certain engines for sure require different setups.on my go .25 it likes 1.1 and the xray shoes, my go 5 port actually screems with carbon and 1.0's. i am looking at the new jammin red shoes, so i would like some imput. thanks

I like running carbon shoes on a low traction track too. Using a .95 spring one shoe and 1.0 on the other two its very progressive, kinda like traction control. I have broken the thinner springs before using them with aluminum shoes on a high traction loamy surface so watch out for that. You could try using 1 aluminum shoe with a 1.0 spring and 2 carbons with 1.10 springs. I think using thinner than 1.0 springs in a truggy would cause the clutch to wear really fast. They lose their "springness" after 2 weekends or so on my buggy. I think the clutch is the most overlooked tuning option. Just take an educated guess and try something different, it worked for me. The jammin red shoes are nice, but Answer RC has some really nice aluminum shoes that comes with 9 springs, 3 of each thickness at a very nice price.

Try using the MC2 clutch shoes and springs for truggy, he has several different types, soft, medium, hard, lightend, regular, with springs ranging in half sizes, like 9.0 9.5 1.0 1.5 gives you better tuning options for different surfaces, he has 3 shoe det up and 4 shoe set ups, springs are great, they are similar to the losi type springs, they do not wear out as fast, and last thru 3 sets or better clutch shoes. Most of the on line stores carry them, Carolinas RC, A-mainhobbies. They work great for me, using 1.0 springs, 4 shoe, regular/medium, in a Kyosho ST-RR truggy, modded ,RB worlds II.
