I havent tried the m2c myself, but i have used the werks pro clutch for a while and like it, its a solid clutch kit. The concept seems similar between the two, what would be the difference?

With that said. I do have a little experience between the werks and the buku. Ive had the buku a couple of weeks now. It is externally adjustable, and you can adjust it to grab however you like. Dont let 3 vs 4 shoe throw you off.

Just be open minded before you dismiss things that may indeed work wonders for your application.

I'll post a few pics of both of my truggies to give you some ideas. In my opinion it's my favorite class to run at our local events.

I remember racing a Sportwerks Mayhem Truggy. Fun times. Now it's only buggy racing.

Those are some really good numbers I would like to run those numbers consistent that sounds good to me. Do you run in a Truggy class or what else do you race against?

Drag racing a truggy...sounds like a blast!
Truggy = MBX6T (so many gearing & shock setup options you'd be set there)
Motor;
Electric = Tekin 2250 or Castle 2200kv both on 6s
Nitro = Radical 621T

Have fun & Best of luck!!

Wow so you are beating Jato's with this Truggy I never thought that a Truggy would compete with a Truggy. What kind of clutch do you recommend for a Truggy, because I hear that they eat up a clutch really fast.

Scale drag racing is 132feet.. a jato with allot of power in will want to wheel off the line and thats not really good even if you put wheelly bars on it...which means you have to come off the line with a little throttle control or set your expo on your radio.. with a truggy that has enough power you can get on the throttle right of the bat and just try to keep it straight... so it isn't on heard off that a jato will get beat...

Ok I'm a rookie to drag racing by far, but should I start off gearing with smaller tires or bigger tires. And I understand that it maybe possible to beat Jato's but I have learned in racing the fastest car doesn't always win. There are a lot of other key factors in racing. There are rules and regulations that could get you kicked out of the race. And I could expect a tricked out Truggy to beat a stock Jato but a tricked out Jato I am very amazed to hear that.
