The new Silver Jammin Clutch shoes are the best I've ever run. I'd give them a try before making a decision on anything else.

Thanks
Bob yes & no. Ofna makes two sizes of clutch bells, one they call short and one they call long. You will need to get the long one so it will cover up the shoes. The short one will leave some shoe exposed. The Sportwerks, ThunderTiger, Kyosho bells will fit also.

I'm using the billet adjustable weight clutch shoes made by Nova RC products and they are pretty amazing too.

The Purple shoes are no where near as good as the Silver. If you waste money just get the silver shoes.

the silver shoes are exactly the same as the purple or blue shoes, but they are just the medium weight shoe so they engage later than the blue shoes but earlier than the silver shoes.

Macnkitty - I don't think you have that quite right. The silver and blue are the same weight - 1.7 grams - and the purple is heavier - 2.1 grams . The silver is made out of a harder aluminum than the blue, however, so it wears longer, and probbaly has a little different slip characteristic. The heavier the shoe, the earlier it will engage.

Does anyone drill holes in the shoes to lighten them even more? If so what exaclty does it do perfomance wise? I run the silver shoes with the 1.1 gold springs because I love how snappy it makes the car. Would it make it better or would it cause the shoes to slip more? or what?

I'd imagine that drilling out the shoes would be used to get "in between" clutch settings.... As long as you don't remove too much material.....
