Default dynamite max-life shoes.

are lasting F O R E V E R! I have over a gallon on them, and they barely look used. Before my mugen shoes would be worn to the nub before i even finished 1 gallon.

The best 20$ you can spend.

Yes they are hard and do last long, but will tear your clutch bell up in the
process. I much rather replace clutch shoes than clutch bell and spur gear.

+1 on the Max Life shoes. We ran a 5 hour truggy enduro and mine looked barely used. And thats almost 5 straight hours of a running engine (had a glow plug issue )

i think for my personal preferance i would only run the maxlife on truggy for a enduro race just cause it wont wear bad, but they are so hard it slips some, runing the motor a little rich would help...but they are awsome
