I find that the mugen clutch shoes does not last very long. Does any other brand fit?

How long is not long?, and in what way are you finding that?, cause you do adjust the gap for wear over time, mine has done something like 10 meets or so I think.

And to directly answer your question, other brands likely won't fit as the clutch is quite unique, but A-Plus or someone like that make a 5 clutch kit I think, though I read elsewhere the brand quality is crap.

I ran two races and 2 practice sessions , and I always reset my clutch before each outing. The X-ray surely lasted longer. I was hoping that some other high quality clutch shoe would fit. Im not interested in using and aftermarket clutch set like a-plus. I'm not knocking it cause I've never tried it but the mugen clutch is fine, just wanted other shoe options

I must be doing something wrong here. My xray nt1 clutchshoes have lasted me 2 years already. i am using two separate clutches on 2 engine`s though but they already seen several engine`s. never knew they suppose to wear faster

I use the yellow normal clutch not the dynamic, could be the reason.
maybe they (xray that is) fit the mugen

Your right, the xray standard clutch does last a long time. You could run it for a complete summer. Then again the mugen clutch shoe is almost 1/3 the price of an xray shoe.

The mugen clutch can tend to be a little aggressive, so you must stay on top of your end play and thrust bearing. This is why i like to reset my clutch before each outing.

I've being using titanium M2.6x10 3 racing sell them.
The trick here is not to over tighten them!!
If you do you will distort the diff end cap and they will leak like crazy.
The last diffs I built, i also add a smear of gasket sealer too.
These diffs have not leaked.

Just a quick check!
Is your thrust bearing end stopper concentric ?
Not sure if you are running the t2002 kit. In The older kit this part was faulty.
But I would check all new ones too.
It can be hard to pick up in some it was only a small amount but it will make shoes wear quick.

I read about the bearing holder being drilled off center, and i checked for that . I didn't see a problem, plus i only stripped 1 gear, on my initial runs, but its been great since then. I will double check since you mentioned it. I think the xray one is the same size. Thanks again.
