Default Fioroni Clutch on Xray 808?

Does anyone know if you can use the Fioroni "2007 Turbo Twin" sliding clutch system on the Xray 808?

Thanks!

I have recently switched from Mugen MBX5R to Xray 808 and the Fioroni turbo twin slider I used on the mugen went straight on to the 808. I had to put a few spacer washers behind the flywheel to move it forward. The Mugen collett is a good fit to the Fioroni flywheel (just had to shorten it a little so it does not petrude in to flywheel lock nut too much).

I reckon this clutch is the best on the market, large contact area + shows very little wear after 6 months of use and very easy to remove & tune by changing springs (I use the black shoes).

OMG, thanks so much for your input. I am so glad I can use the fioroni clutch system. I was sweating about that. I have had really bad luck w/ the 3 and 4 shoe designs. I am with you. The Fioroni system is the best out there.

I use the black shoes as well w/ c6bb. People think I'm nutz, but I would rather drive with a feather finger, and then have the snap to pass someone in a tight turn.

Yes the car will be more drivable with a clutch that engauges smoothly, less chance of the backend breaking away. Don't use the blue shoes as they will slip.

Yes the Turbo clutch fits just fine..however I will tell you if you run the active diff for some reason it will go through shoes pretty quick.thanks
