What i have been doing with my clutch the last 4 years racing is the following.
Put the new clutch shoe in an oven and bake it for 20minutes in 200 degrees.
The yellow clutch shoe from the xray nt1 lasted me a very long time with awsome cluth. very consistant and fast accelerating. Consistant because the clutchgap stays the same without much wear. No need for any run in whatsoever.
now i have the Serpent 977, been doing first what the guys told me and had problems. changed to my baking method and lost the clutch problems. All smiles again.
Worth a try and keep it secret so you gain an advantage
i use hard springs though
