Default Clutch Advice

I was wondering if someone could give me some clutch advice. I'm new to 1/8th scale nitro/offroad. What would be a good clutch for a 8ight buggy with a oftna .21 and JP 1 pipe.

Can I use various manufactures or do I have to stick to losi. I see there are different springs as well. I would guess differient spring rates engage/disengage the cluthc differently.

Thanks in advance for the help.

you can run almost any clutch system in the 8igth's it just requires an adjustable motor mount and some shimming.....i personally run the losi clutch set-up in buggy and M2C 4 shoe w/Ofna Vented bell in truggy.....as for the spring's it all depends on the track/personal preference...stiffer the spring higher the stall....softer the spring the earlier the shoes will engage.
