Default Clutch setup help - what is it...

Hello - I recently purchased a used Mugen MBX6 with lots of spare parts. One piece in particular is an orange flywheel with a similar setup to a Fironi clutch system. The clutch is carbon with a spring holding the two pieces. It slides onto the flyheel, a washer/collar hold it in place and like with all cluthc system the bell just slides into place.

Has anyone ever seen one of these - I'll post pics soon but wanted to confirm if anyone knew what brand it is. There are no obvious markings on it.

Thanks in advance for any response...

Sounds like a rtr clutch setup. My kyosho us sports truggy had a setup like that. It was complete junk. I would toss it and get a 3 shoe Mugen or 4 shoe weeks clutch system. 2 large plastic shoes with a large spring doesn't allow for much adjustment.
