You can look in two spots.

www.ascendancyrc.com and
www.stormerhobbies.com

For Stormer at the top of the homepage look in the manufactures drop down menu and then select Ascendancy Racing. There you will find the complete line up of the products.

Hy all I am Jan. The producer and designer of the JCD clutch. It is being sold in the US under Ascendancy Racing.
I have been designing this system for the last year. We have been testing alu grades and surface treatments and after many gallons I came to this design.

The fly wheel is made from the higest grade of alum.
The shoes are made in a special way to get the best shoe wear but stil to be a comfort to drive the car.

If anyone has a Q just send me a PM.

I've had the clutch for about 3 weeks now. Just started really using it in my Losi Truggy. So far so good. It engages smoothly and seems to be grabbing pretty good. I'm still playing around with different spring combinations. I used it at the Roar Nats with the stiff springs and it seemed to work very well. I'm happy with the performance so far, especially with a gallon on it.

I have been running the fioroni sliding clutch sys. for a few yrs. now and want to try something different. In the past when I ran alum. maintenance was so high I changed to the fioroni which lasts very well but on .21 engines has a small bottom bog. Can some one update on average how long shoes are lasting in buggy and/or truggy.

Right now I am getting about 3 gallons in Buggy and 2.5 in truggy. It all depends on how your setup is and how much traction you are getting.
