Default losi 8ight 2.0 clutch ?

Does anyone know if you can take a clutch set-up that was used in a rc8b, its got everything but the clutch bell, i have a clutch bell for the 8ight 2.0.

but i dont know if it will work, i dont know why it wouldnt because i can see the clutch bell being different, but wouldnt all the big companys like team assoc. and tlr would be pretty much the same and i think that you could.

but if you have tryed this and know if it works or not, will you please let me know, cuz everyone i ask say that they dont know why it wouldnt work ya know.

The Losi bell is a unique shape among the industry. My guess is it will not work. There may also be an issue with flywheel spacing on the chassis as well. It's worth a shot, and may be doable with an RC8 bell, but my guess since the Losi has a long, unique shape, it won't work out.

so you think that i will have toi buy a clutch and a flywheel for the losi, because you think the flywheel while rub on the chassis. its maybe to big for my flywheel opening on the bottom of the buggie.

I think it will work as long as the losi clutch bell is on. I wanted to try a three shoe clutch setup also but haven't gotten around to it. Good luck and let us know the outcome.
