Default Clutch questions

I am putting together my buggy (D8). I am using the Werks B5 engine and I am going to order the Fioroni 3 shoe clutch "system", and I am also going to get a 16t clutch bell and bearings. What other clutch parts am I going to need? Does the collet come with the clutch? Thanks- Steve

some brands throw in the collet but unless its mentioned in the description it's not included. I'd recommend a fresh set of bearings and get the mugen clutch shim kit. Also get the hpi (or any other brand, I think axial makes them also) .5mm shims they are about a dollar but saves you from using too many shims. You will also need a clutch nut unless if one comes with the flywheel.

all Fioroni clutches come with the nut, none include the collet. use the collet that came with your car and/or engine, and if that does not work, a novarossi collet does for sure.
