i think clutch bell has different length and clutch shoes wont fit. I think the AE bell is too short for a losi clutch set up

The Losi clutchbell is too long, but the AE clutchbell might fit. The trick is whether or not the CB is deep enough to properly cover the shoes.

If you have an RC8T, I assume you have the clutchbell for it? In which case, plop it on there and see if it fits.

ae bell is shorter.. i shoulda checked first..thanks anywayy.. has anyone used a 4 shoe in the rc8 buggy or truggy? if so what did you notice cause alot of people i know have mugens and use aftermarket 4 shoe.. i cant stand changing the springs on 3 shoe and found losi clutch,longer lasting and quicker to change... feedback on the differance would be cool... thanks guys
