Default Flywheel/Clutch Setup

I am looking into getting another flywheel/clutch setup. I have the stock Losi clutch and am either going to get another one of them or something else. What do you guys use, just looking for some ideas

Well if you have your heart on trying something different than I would suggest give the Fioroni turbo sliding clutch system a shot. Great clutch set-up and 1 set of shoes will literally last you forever and won't burn up bearings as fast as other set-ups.

I used the kyosho one. It is so nice. Easy to use, and inexpensive

The Mugen clutch is a popular replacement for the Losi clutch in my area. I've swapped my Losi clutches in my 8-t and 8-b. I haven't seen the Kyosho or Fioroni on a Losi, so I can't personally say if the Mugen is better or not.

You'll need the Mugen MBX5 flywheel, Mugen nut, some shims (Ofna is good), some springs (Ofna works fine, cheaper), and the shoes (Ofna is fine). Depending on your engine, you may need the Ofna collet, too. One of my engines needed it, the other one didn't. It's only a couple of bucks, so it might be worthwhile to get one either way. You'll use your Losi clutchbell.
