Default Will this gonna work ?

Aluminium clutch shoes are well known used in the offroad scene and do give some advantages. I wonder why they are not available in the onroad so a friend created one for me to give it a try...

The burr when the aluminum shoe wears is permanent (stays on the edges), which is one of the reasons why it's important to open and inspect the clutch on an offroad car more often - to debur the edges of the clutch. The burr may interfere with the way the shoe slides back and forth on the clutch pins.

But hey, not trying to be negative or anything. It looks very interesting, please keep us posted on the performance.

And don't try to use the same clutchbell afterwards with a plastic shoe, it will eat through shoes like there's no tomorrow. At least that's what I've heard from the offroaders.

I know the surface can go rough but I have enough clutchbells to give it a try.

It is for a MRX4 but it can be created for any type of clutch...

This weekend I will prepare an engine and hope I can test it over 2 weeks (I have some other things to do).

After you have finished laughing, would you be so nice and write the same here in dutch? Isn't it kinda lame to laugh at grammar errors of a person who's obviously not a native english speaker?
BTW, neither am I, so don't bother fixing my grammar erros (although I know there aren't any)
