Default Problem with clutch (8-T 1.0)

Hello,

I've got a problem with my clutch on 8-T 1.0. The collet is damaged and it slides on the crankshaft so I have to replace it BUT I can't find it! The only thing that I have found is a set of the flywheel and collet. I don't want to spend 20$ on such a small thing (my flywheel is ok so I don't need another one). Could you tell me if I can buy this collet but without flywheel? If it's not possible, maybe you know if there is a collet (not from team losi) that would fit the clutch on my 8-T?

The engine is .21 (JPX).

Please help me

Thanks

Donat (Warsaw, Poland)

a couple years ago after i got my first 8ight i ran into the same issue you have and needed a collet only. to make its first race i ended up using a traxxas collet(was black, i believe for a revo or t maxx). i bought it seperately, collet only. it was black and a little snug although could be seperated(the split in the collet to make fit) and fit on the crank. i dont remember for sure if i used a spacer as you would use with the losi collet for sure or not although it worked fine.

To unsp0ken:
Will this fit to 8-T as originally it's for Losi XXX-NT AD2?
