Get urself an AE flywheel and springs and start using Impulse-r/c shoes! I think all the 8ight guys are using the Mugen bell. Shoes for $11.99 that last and last.

I have a pretty top quality set of tools and the 8T clutch has to be the most prone I have EVER come across to just stripping out at the drop of a hat.

I've gone as simple as running Traxxas 2 Shoes from a Revo at least it saves the headache.

You have to use just a little blue loctite.

I don`t need to ask , I know from experience . Besides why would Losi say to put lock tite on them and then drivers say not to ?

don't loctite. Just snug them up and don't over tighten them. They won't vibrate loose. Just make sure your wrench tip isn't worn a little. I have stripped those screws before but it was alway's my fault do to putting them on too tight in the first place.
