Gary don't read the set up ... You'll be going so fast when you hit the wall that you will have to completely rebuild your car

Default 3 shoe

I ran the 3 shoe clutch at the winternats. I didn't do anything any different than the 4 shoe clutch. Actually I ran the clutch bone stock set up, except for the MSR & JP clutch spring. Stock flyweights and yellow clutch shoe. I haven't seen any gray shoes for the 3 shoe clutch. In my opinion the 3 shoe seems a little less aggressive than the 4 shoe, it was quite smooth to me and required more than usual spring tension to get it like the 4 shoe snappiness. Although the yellow 3 shoe clutch was very long lasting.

Your welcome! Printed out the entry today, and a money order. Can't believe I didn't have a business envelope to put it in. It will go out tomorrow for sure.

I noticed that the yellow shoe would wear very fast with the four pin clutch so I always ran the gray one. I hope that they come out with the gray one for the three pin clutch.
