Its really good. Mitch has a new one out that i have not tried, but basically the flywheel is lightened even more. I have his clutch on my mbx6 with the JX motor, and the shoes lasted me 2 gallons. I just filed them every time I replaced the bearings, and sanded my clutchbell as well.

I forgot to mention, ths was the soft lite shoes. believe it or not Mitch says the soft ones last longer because they grab harder, they also make your clutch stay cooler.

I run two yellows and two blacks, if you bought the kit, it comes with all the springs and the soft lites. If you want more punch, or run on a high traction track, run all black. If you need to tone the bottom down a little run a lighter spring.

+1000, Mitch struck gold with this set up. I normally run 4 Reg Hard with 2 .90 and 2 .95s. I may have to try some experimenting with the softer shoes someday soon though. Seems a lot of people like em. But, I also run on med to low traction surfaces.

me too our traction on our track is not the best but can get excellent as the day goes on so im hoping the soft shoes will do the trick for me.. ive ordered .9 and .95mm springs as the 1.00 and 1.05 are out of stock.

If you are running on lower traction tracks, run a thinner spring, that way the clutch will engage earlier, and take away some of the "hit"
