I use an inexpensive, durable, and effective setup:

Xray flywheel
Mugen clutch nut
Dynamite Max Life shoes
Kyosho 1.1 springs
Racers Edge vented clutchbell

The Xray flywheel is (operationally) identical to the Mugen but less expensive. The Dynamite Max Life shoes are what the name says- very long lasting! The Kyosho springs and Mugen nut just line up well- I've had problems in the past with a "bad batch" of Mugen springs. The vented clutchbell helps keep the heat down so bearings last longer, but on the downside a sloppy pit crew can hose down your clutch with fuel... keep that in mind. If you don't want a vented bell, I like the Mugen ones.

ALL of those parts are less expensive than comparable stuff from other manufacturers (except the Mugen nut and optional Mugen bell of course!)

Oh... and Avid Revolutions bearings. $1 each and consistantly long lasting.
