I had one batch of logo wear made up and they went like hot cakes! I plan on having more stuff made up when we get a little closer to the outdoor season.

Its awesome to see all of the great feedback from everyone!

There is a Mugen Driver in TX that I know of that uses the Mugen Flywheel with the Impulse-r/c shoes. Double check the Dia. of the pins on your flywheel, they need to be 2.5mm or .098 in. Just pick up an AE clutch nut and springs and you will be all set.


The best part about Impulse-r/c shoes is that you can keep your clutch fresh all the time without breaking the bank. All of this awesome feed back makes me want to build the standard style as well....hmmm!

I tried the impulse-rc clutch shoes on my 8ight-E and instantly grew 2 inches, lost 20 lbs and dropped my laptimes by 3 seconds HI STEEEEEEBY






(the above is a joke, I didn't really lose 20 lbs)

After a little testing....I think the 1.0s are the way to go.

Steebo, I presume the regular 3-Shoe variety will be available in the next day or so, would you be able to ship to the UK?

Cheers..

Yes, some of the tooling that I have coming was out of stock so it should be in by the end of the week.

Thanks,
Justin

Standard shoes are still on hold. Here's a little peek of the new D plate. Full line up of toe plates, motor mounts, center diff top plates and more on the way!
