Can someone that's familiar with the m2c shoes recommend a set of shoes for my d8? The track I primarily run on does not hVe the best traction in the world. Gonna stick with the d8 flywheel so just looking for a 3 shoe setup. Can someone correct me on this, but the thicker a spring the higher rpm the engine must rev before the clutch engages??

shane if you want to stick with a 3 shoe setup may i suggest the ofna line of shoes i am currently running the lightened red shoes with my RC8 at the moment with 2 1.0mm sprngs and a 1.1mm spring.

this is a great setup for our track which is quite loose.

OFNA do make quite a few different shoes so its up to you and you get the 2 sets of springs 1.0 and 1.1mm with each set of shoes you buy.

Just M O.

Lighter spring = lower stall/engagement point = smoother/softer hit on bottom.
Heavy spring = higher stall/engagement point = more abrubt/harder hit on bottom. Better for high traction surfaces.

Softer shoe should slip less, harder shoe slips more.

M2C also offers direct replacement shoes for most 3 shoe systems at a good price. http://www.m2cracing.com/category.sc?categoryId=3 IMO the 4 shoe system is the best.

I've been running this setup for almost a year now and all I have to say is BUY IT. Nothing else comes close. It is crazy tuneable, feels great, and lasts a long time.

M2C is by far the best clutch I've ever run. I brought to kits the weekend of the Psycho Nitro Blast and I have put about 2.5 gallons on it, (haven't raced much lately) and I am sure it could last another gallon. I run 4 soft lite with .9 springs on my .24 fm extech2 and it is insane. This same clutch setup has seen two diffrent truggies and was used to break in the engine. I just clean up the cb when I service my clutch, and that's all. These clutches are great.

Joey, Drewmugx5t and myself are lucky. We all live in race in the Charlotte area. We often get to see Mitch and what he's working on. He's not just some guy trying to make a buck. He's out there asking question. Seeing what we would like to see improved on our rides. He buys one of all the latest and tries out different stuff and improvements. He just drops by the tracks just to marshall and hang out. He's a great guy with an eye for making the good work better.

If you like his clutch try his toe plates they are the ticket on a Losi.

+1 on everything. Couldn't have said it better.

the life of the shoes is great, I have noticed the bearings themselves actually last longer as well.
