One reccomendation would be the Fioroni Turbo Sliding clutch. The initial cost is high, but in the long run will save you alot of money from having to consistently replacing shoes and springs. The shoes on the Fioroni Turbo Sliding clutch can go for gallons and gallons before having to be replaced.

The Fioroni Turbo Sliding Clutch is an excellent choice, but does your motor have a pilot shaft or an SG shaft? If pilot shaft, you might have issues installing the Fioroni or other aftermarket clutches.

The werks 4 shoe clutch is awsome and lasts for ever. And they give you 3 types of shoes which are a good tuning option. But you are just bashing I think you said so I say just get a few sets of springs and shoes from Kyosho carbons or teflons they are cheap and wear well. I know quite a few racers that use their .9 springs and either of the 2 shoes I said.

You wont be disappointed....and the adjust ability is Infinity almost....no other clutch compares Imo...The Only down side to Mitch's 4 shoe is that he has not come out with a composite shoe for even more tuning.

How long do you get out of a set of shoes?

If your only bashing, then why does it matter what clutch you run? Go to the lhs and have them put one together for you. Simple as that........

Multiple gallon's...i use Med lite's and hard lite's....sometime's ill throw in a med ultralite...but most i stick with 4 common shoes....as i dont like to mix and match wear characteristics and have to worry about which shoes have so much time on them n such.
