Default Losi clutch vs. Ofna

Hi guys,I'm new to the sport but not to wrenchturning. I'll be receiving my first buggy shortly (used matrix R2) w/ lots of upgrades,it currently has an OS RG.21 in it, I plan on dropping an LRP Z.28R spec3 in it (I won't be racing), the.21 has a Losi clutch in it, I was wondering if it will fit the LRP, are the collets the same size? Should I buy an Ofna clutch? Can anyone give a comparison between the two (maintenance & performance, ease to setup).I'll accept any tips and pointers that you may have. On the LRP what kind of glowplugs should I use? I'll be running 30%nitro either O'donnel or Byron's original gen2, thanks once again.

A losi clutch bell may not fit because the gear extends further out on the bell.

I run a Losi 4 shoe clutch and you have to move your engine back about 5mm unless you are putting it in a losi 8. I had custom engine mounts made for my car to use it. The four shoe is the ticket though, Answer RC makes one that will fit your car.
If your Losi clutch is the older 3shoe type you wont have any issues.
