Questions?? Werks Clutch, should I put it in my New Mugen MBX6?

So I have an older Werks Clutch and I just bought a new MBX6. Wondering if I should use the Werks clutch. Just getting back into it again. Is it still the king? If not what's better. Any tips to setting it up if it is.

Any tips on setting them up, other than trial and error all the time?

4 carbon shoes,soft spring,red locktite on spring nut,3 threads showing above spring nut & adjust for feel from there.Only trick with WERKS clutch is the red locktite,but dont worry the eng & clutch heat will keep it from bein permanent.I usually put the spring nut on the clutch nut with 2 threads showing & grind those threads down flush with the nut so the short bells I use will cover all of the shoes,so I end up with none to 1 thread showing above spring nut. Also use a 10mm socket that goes fully onto the spring nut,some sockets have such a big chamfer wher it slides over a nut that it wont sit far enough down on the thin spring nut & strips it easily.

Look at bottom of link for descriptions & instructions.
