Best clutch?? I think that's stretching it a lot. The most fundamental thing to know is that Serpent started the Centax clutch and that the function and the working principle was copied. Yes, there was a mod on a Mugen clutch shoe. I don't call that copying. The fact is that we admit and still call it a Mugen clutch shoe. Serpent or Art Carbonnel did not hide that fact and called it something else. No doubt about that.
And that too was a long time ago. According to inside information, Serpent is releasing new graphite filled Teflon composite material soon.
But to all of us, the Mugen clutch shoe is just an option. The original shoe just works fine. No issues with it.
