all carbon?
2 carbon,1 aluminum?
2 aluminum,1 carbon?

Personally I always run all Aluminum in Truggy. I will mix and match 1.0 and 1.1 to the track. Most tracks I will run 2 1.0's and 1 1.1 with all Aluminum shoes.

M2C is the last Stop you'll ever make for a 4 shoe truggy clutch.

for .28(if your power horny) Reg hard shoes all on .9's will last you Gallon after gallon of Pure Abuse.

for a .21 med soft or light hard or basically w/e feel you want to your clutch and w/e stall...basically w/e you motor/driving style requires......ive got 5 race weekends on my .21 set-up and they look like they will go another 10 no problems.

i tend to stay away from Real high spring stall...as all they do is create more heat in the clutch and more slipping on top end....i was taught by the Clutch Guru Mitch if you want more stall....go to a lighter shoe before you go up in stall.
