Default BuKu Speed Tune Clutch for 1/8th Scale on road GT

Hello guys, I wanted to start this thread for the discussion of our 1/8th scale clutch and how it's being used for on-road application. For you guys who are already running it (if you willing) post up some of your findings with the clutch and maybe some clutch settings as well for those who may be considering running it for on road...Thanks Fellas

I plan to try my Buku on my GT8 at FBF next weekend. Love it on my offroad car. Will the lack of a vented clutch bell on the two speed present a problem? I figured I'd start with my offroad settings, and just adjust from there.

Hey Gary how are you let me tell you you are noy going to regret trying it from having the record time of [email protected] Floyd I went to average 13.6 and clutch lasts at least 4x longer than regular 3shoed

Well im my opinion Buku is the best clutch i ever, ever try in my life.
Go ahead guys and start using buku. You guys not going to regret. Easy to tune and it last way longer than the normal 3 shoes clutch.

Tony Q just order me 2 more complete clutches with a harder springs. Looking for a better punch.

"buku the Best"

Adjustable pipes aren't going to be allowed to run in GT, are they??? These aren't allowed in any sanctioned racing class or series that I'm aware of. OMG, let's not open THAT can of worms in this or any other class. It's the last thing needed in GT, especially since we run 2 speeds already anyway.

I would like to thank Bukupower for providing us with an outstanding product. This last weekend Scotty Gray was able to TQ and Win the Panamerican GT Race in Homestead Florida one of the biggest GT races. Buku Adjustable clutch really made the difference optimizing the power to the ground. Scotty was very surprised to improve his laptimes by turning the set screws in the clutch while we were testing. It is that easy !!

I had a minor problem on my semi final that didnt allow me to make it to the big show

Special thanks to Dave for always being there for me, Im really glad to represent such a good product.

BuKu clutch got the job done (TQ'ed and 1st place finish for the GT8 class) in the Midwest Series Race #1 at Toledo, OH. I am so amazed on how easy to tune the clutch on the fly. Championship product made for champions. Great product for the GT8 class. Keep up the good work guys. Thank you Brian!!!
