I just changed from a 3 shoe to a M2C 4 shoe with adjustable weight steel flywheel, I won't be going back to a 3 shoe anytime soon thats for sure.
My engine has heaps of low down power & the M2C 4 shoe makes it much more controllable, even without any extra weight added from the grub screws, the heavier flywheel tames the bottom end but still lets you have the power for short run ups to jumps & for fast acceleration in the tight sections between corners.
Using 2x .9mm & 2x .95mm springs for a progressive engagement & medium shoes this clutch seems to be real nice on the track I go to that has a fair bit of loose stuff on most of the surface.
Stuff I like & use.
JQ Racing 'THE Car' Black Edition, NAA-GODZILLA engine,
Sanwa MT4 radio, NEO+ fuel, MAX & Ultimate Racing Oils,
SWEEP tyres, Savox servo's.

When I get back into nitro, Im buying the Werks clutch. It lasts so much longer than the stockers.
