Honetly there is no need to replace the stock 2.0 clutch. It is hands down the best clutch IMHO.

Ascendancy Racing clutch system! best clutch i've tried. and that includes M2C. M2C is very close to the same feel.

Go back to the losi 4-shoe set-up. It's much more adjustable and can be set-up easily for different track conditions.

because some use 32 mm fly wheels, i think kyosho uses them, nothing is different.

M2C is ok, but seem to wear faster and a little harder to change and all.

i get atleast a gallon on springs and about 3-4 gallons on the shoes with the Ascendancy Racing clutch system

32mm is mostly for the MP9 because the 34mm will be almost flushed with the bottom of the chassis, may cause a problem if you land hard (flamout).

about the 8ight, i dont think you need to change the stock one, its great and very durable, why do you want to change it??

cheers

they are almost the same exact thing as Ascendancy but they are fancier and look cool. they are a little different, but they work the same exact way.

The Werks offers different flywheel weights. Ascendancy has started to offer composite shoes. The parts interchange, so you can mix and match.
