oh i dont know though, usually to get enough punch a truggy at least needs a all alum shoe setup a 4 shoe.

is there aftermarket alum shoes for the d8t ?

i mean ive ran a, 2 alum/2 carbon shoe setup on my eight-1.0 buggy and was good but that was a buggy.

TRUST ME when i say stock clutches are good everyone who runs a d8 or d8t at my local track keeps the stock shoes on, im sure they make aluminum but why switch when stockers are great.
