i am using the sportwerks clutch tool, i really like it. i used it 2 days ago and didnt have to use any other tool to put on the shoes/springs and it only took 5 minutes.

here is a link to it.

I have both the SW and the Losi. Losi wins this one hands down. Works very well to install and remove the shoes.

The Sportwerks tool is somewhat useless. A screwdriver works better, I can change a clutch in less than 5 minutes using one.

The Losi tool looks interesting but I've never used it or seen anyone who has. Its price is good, about $7 compared to $18 for the Sportwerks.
