If you go with Mugen I'd suggest you get a Capricorn clutch to prevent gear stripping.

The clutch has nothing to do with stripping gears. A properly maintianed and setup Mugen clutch can't be beat. One of the things I like about Mugen cars is that there is no need for upgrades.

Just my opinion as I stated.

I have seen properly setup clutches and still strips spurs. Its a myth, but its still there.

There is a reason pro drivers prefer Capricorn clutch. Mugen clutch is no where near aggressive as a Serpent/Capricorn clutch.

My MTX-4 site has extensive info on how to minimize the chances of stripping gears - but like you said, some people still had/have problems. Must be the mechanic.

This thread on the article about how Swauger sets his clutch also has some good info buried in it:

So...uh Richie? Have you looked outside lately? Or you still "lost in Cali?" Wish I could run my Nitro Sedan NOW, however, it's 40*F outside right now and could be "Raining Sideways" as we speak!!

BTW, you know Tuck runs a Mugen, the "Goat Bros" have NT1's, Brian and I run Kyosho's, so you and Donny should get something "really Foriegn", like a TM G4 or HPI R40.
