I agree, I bought a motor from a guy and it had the Kyosho clutch on it, only reason I was wondering

yup I run m2c clutch with kyosho clutch bell. great setup and no problems and it will cost less because of bearings and clutch life is the best. I run this on my lost8t 2.0.

Actually I do. After killing the stock clutch within a day, I did the switch. Car handled much better afterwards, sorry to say. I also changed the clutchbell. Otherwise the car is perfect!!

the losi clutch is By FAR one of the easiest to set-up longest lasting quality clutch's on the market...the fact that you burnt it down in 1 day proves nothing and says alot about your knowledge of how and why clutch's work....sorry to say but its true.

wow.. sorry what knowledge? I built the car and run it out of the box.. clutch sucked.. never happened with Kyosho or even with CEN. I've been buggy racing since 2004

I switched to Kyosho 3-shoe and run the whole day, very well and better actually, and the composite clutch is still in great shape

I admit the clutch (the whole flywheel assembly) is easy to remove and work on, but that's it. I'm talking about the version 1.0 (not the 2.0)

it's not the only poor clucth tho in the market

if there's any more "knowledge" please do share it. This was just my experience on the car and it's clutch. The car itself is great!

Okay. That's fine. I think I've read something like they've made changes to the clutch since, like a heavier flywheel or something, I don't know in detail.
