Questions?? Capricorn 1/8th Clutches

I'm looking to buy the Capricorn 1/8th scale clutch kit.

I have both the Evolva & MRX-4X cars, so what is the difference between the Evolva & MRX-4 clutches? They look the same to me.

Also, is the shoe that comes with the kit suitable for medium to high grip tracks or should I buy the green, red or yellow shoe?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The flywheel for the Kyosho is a little deeper where the flyweights sit versus the Mugen
I tested the green in sedan & have not tested it on 1/8th
I used the red & yellow on 1/8th if your looking for a slight slip Red more grip yellow

Thanks for the reply.

So apart from the flywheel, they are both the same clutches then? Also, do the standard pinion gears fit on the clutch bell or do you have to purchase the capricorn ones.

Sorry to ask so many questions.

Ask away you can use other pinions but the Capricorn does not wear las much as the stock pinions & have a really nice look to them

Have a Happy New Year!!!

Daniel did you try out the rear dogbones yet they are a must have for your RRR

I hope this is a good place to ask this question.....
I am looking for your top deck for the RRR that allows the NT1 tank. I have found it on your site but I can't read the text. I also have looked on murnanmodified with no luck. I also noticed on your site that the top deck might allow for either horizontal or vertical mounting, is this true? I would rather mount it horizontally.

Thank you for your time.
