Ive been running the m2c since June. I have about 3 gallons on my truggy and 2 on my buggy that I run these clutches on. They require little maintenance compared to my mugen clutch and last much much longer. I can probably get another gallon out of the truggy and at least 2 more out of the buggy shoes. Tuning is endless with 4 spring sizes and 6 - 8 choices in shoes ranging in weight and hardness.

I thought the whole point of the JVD/acendency/werx clutches is so the Losi style of clutch can be made to work on other brands of chassis? As an acendency user who coveted the losi design, but failed to make it fit on my non-losi chassis. (damn non standard clutch bell!)

segui, you have the best system for your car, stock. and with Ebay chop shops, the most affordable as well.

If you are already running a 3 shoe setup just get the stock hot bodies shoes and springs. I have ran them all year so far in my mugen. They last a long time, are super smooth, and it only costs about $10 to rebuild.

well right now i have a ofna fly wheel 3 shoes and its almost flush with my chassis. it also gives me trouble to turn over the buggy. the fly wheel is to big for my box and for the chassis. right now its seems like the stock set up is the best way to go and cheapest! correct?

M2C or the Werks clutches work really well. Mr. Pettit runs the M2C with Barry, and they are kicking A$$ this year. I know a few that have ran the Acendancy, but they all switched to something else already. The Fioroni Vario is an excellent Clutch with the longest lasting shoes in the biz. If you are running the OFNA/Jammin set up, I would stay with that, great clutch and you just won't see the difference with a 4 shoe setup. IMO
