Default HPI R40 clutch question

I have a hpi R40 that I have for 5 years now. I have not raced it for the last 3 years but wanted to get it going again to race it since don't want to spend for a new on road car. Well I need a new clutch system and was wondering what other brands can I use since I can't find centex clutches anymore. If anyone has a extra clutch system that would fit a R40 and want to sell it let me know....Thanks in advance..David

You can use the Mugen MTX3 centex clutch on your R40, or you can try the link below for a dealer that still supports the R40...
