Not at this time. We do not want to muddy the water with to many options. The aluminum shoe that is offered at this time is the best out bar none.

Hey Jason, I sent you an email inquring about the carbon shoes pre-order (Marcus Malone). I think they will be the ticket for indoor racing.

Never used Carbon shoes before. What would be the advantage of using one? THe current shoe is already dialed in with just spring adjustment. Its all I use right now.

Another thing when do you replace the shoes? Even if it seems a little thin already it still working. I dont know if its bad though.

Carbon shoes slip a bit more for low traction situations where you spin sideways on acceleration. They also slip just a bit on landings off jumps, saving the drivetrain and keeping the car stable.

AR have great product. Been running the alu's for a couple of months now.

It is reliable and extremely durable. It is simple and effective.

I have mix reaction over carbon clutch. I just uses 0.9 / 1.0 combo when things tends to be a little slippery. Eazy peezy. I know CB don't like carbon/alu combo.

Also with more option, it would be nice I think but rather confusing in deciding which is the correct clutch setup for various track.

I would be sticking for all alu's. It is good enough already.

No we do not offer a flywheel tool as we have found that Rubber Channel Locks are best and have multi uses.

Bart,

I assure you the Carbon will be of top quality as it is from a great company!!! But I am not sure any carbon will last as long as aluminum.
