Default anyone use the Werks power clutch?

I just finished building a 1/8 buggy (Jammin) and I'm saving my pennies for an engine and electronics. I've been seriously thinking about trying out this clutch... I like the quick adjustment capability and not having to wrangle with the springs on the 3 shoe clutch would be a bonus!

Is anyone running this? Any comments are appreciated.

I like the clucth alot. I have had it in my K3 for a long time. Also, don't worry the first time you run the clutch, or make an adjustment it takes a few laps to warm up, then every run after that it's money. And the wear on te clutch is very good.

Have you got a motor for your jammin yet? If not you should get a REX P5, But if you do make sure you get the one piece motor mount. Because the stock motor mounts are not made for the Novarossi Motors.

Default Sportwerks Power clutch system

I have been running the Power clutch system on my RB ws7II for about 3 months and it works great. The only thing is you need to follow the instructions that come with it. You must put a little Blue lock tight on the adjusting nut so it dosent screw it self down. I run the rulon shoes with the middle hardest spring. they wear pretty good. The teflon shoes i just instaled i will try them this weekend and and give a report on how good or bad the work.

Sgt_Morrow, no I don't have a motor for the Jammin' yet. I will consider the P5 though! It costs a little less than the WS7II I had planned on buying... do you know how the 2 engines compare?

layedbackguy, thanks for your input! I definitely will give this clutch a try. Great pics too! Thanks for sharing.

The P5 is a short track motor with very good low end. The WS7II is better suited or larger tracks. The WS7II is also a little clutch and pipe sensitive. W/ the ws7II try kyosho black shoes(trimmed) with 1.1 or 1.0 springs. The p5 runs great with just about any clutch setup and i like either an 086 pipe or the jp-2.

I have tried a 86 and 63 pipe with my Ws7II and found out with the 63 i get great bottom end, to the 86 ...i have crazy top end power. the track i run on is a short track so the 63 works better. The P5 is a very good motor!!! there are different versions of it i think, like a 421 b or somthing like that..short stroke.. but they are very good and last longer than O.S motors
