Questions?? Clutch question

Are all motor clutches the same?

I have a friend who is selling 2 mugen clutches from a mrx4 and was wondering can I run it on my evolva m3?

No, they are different in the way they perform. eg. Flyweights in between the flywheel pins or on the pins.

Anyway, you can run mugen clutches on the M3 but may have to use the M3 clutch gears instead of the mugen ones.

Default clutches

The clutch discs on the Kyosho and Mugen are not the same
It will work, but not 100%
Hold a Kyosho disc next to a Mugen clutch disc and compare the bevel edges.
I learned this the hard way when my clutch was not working right, and had all of my spare clutch discs in the same compartment in my pit bag, so I just naturally grabbed one and installed it.
Like I was saying, it will work, but like the correct disc for that flywheel, and flyweights.
When you can just compare the two and it will be easy to see the difference
Its the same difference for 1/10 and 1/8th Kyosho and Mugen

Except you may need to run the Kyosho gears on it, not sure as I don't have a K car.

I run mugen clutches on the Shepherd with the Shepherd gears. Mugen gears will work but the mesh is better with the Shepherds.

Yep, identical. But mugen spurs don't fit the shepherd unless you put the mugen hubs on it too. The pitch of the gears or tooth shape seems a bit different. They will work together but feel crunchy. So just stick the shepherd gears on the mugen clutch and everything is silky smooth and perfect.

Run the Kyo gears with the Mugen clutch. Use all the Mugen clutch parts and set to Mug. specs, or wherever you like. The Mugen locks up differently and much better than the Kyo.

Yes, they're correct, you can run the Kyo discs with a Mugen bell and flywheel, just the clutch tends to chamfer at a more distinct angle so it seats a little differently. Take your time breaking in the Kyo disc and it will work okay. The whole reason for the clutch change though is to run the Mugen unit, so stick with that game plan instead of mixing parts, except the gears of course.

Use the Mugen yellow clutch disc of course.
