Default Difference between red and yellow shoes

Hello Nitrodude:
SER903239-Red Shoe- used with SER909512 (stock) or SER909513 (lightweight) Bell- harder shoe and so slips a little more than the yellow, so great for low-traction tracks to prevent wheel spin.

SER6587N- Yellow Shoe- used with SER909512 or SER909513 Bell- softer shoe and grabs more than the red so great for higher traction track. This is the "general standard" shoe. When done "right" your front tires actually lift off the ground.

SER6587XP-Black Shoe- used with SER903387 Aluminum bell, introduced 2011 Worlds Homestead. (30gms lighter than the stock steel bell). Feels and performs almost like the yellow shoe. Slips a little bit at first but advantageous due to the lightweight aluminum bell and so the motor definately spools-up quicker.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Paulie!! That helps a lot!
I ask because I have 2 motors with the yelow shoe and one with the red shoe. This past weekend I was running the motor with the red shoe and it was easier to drive out of corners, I was able to get on the gas at the apex and power around the corner. When using the motors with the yellow shoe is harder to do that, it makes the car push coming out of the corner, its like its too much power too soon. And I was thinking that perhaps the red shoe allowed the clutch to slip a little more, and that confirms it. I guess Im going to be ordering red shoes!

Are you coming out for the KO GP in may?

I'll be there. I already confirmed "we" are going. Remind me when I arrive if you want to do a clutch together.
Save me some of your "goodies" too.

Actually my clutches are good, but perhaps what is a "perfect" clutch for most is too punchy for me. But, sure, maybe you can watch me drive and tell me what you think.
