just use a fine sand paper to rub on the inside of the clutch bell to make the surface rough. this will increase friction

The grinding on the clutch makes it grip better to the shoe, wear probably is a little higher that if weren't sanded, but about 12 litres of fuel under racing conditions is a quite good life expectancy of the clutch shoe.
so the mugen ones last probably 8-10 litres?

This trick is neat. I use it on all my clutch bell, but still encounter the slipping problem. Will keep all of you posted whether the remedy works or not.

By the way, this technique also works great when you assemble the Negative Diff on the Solid Axle part, 2-finger engage. Sand the housing with a very fine sand paper. This will ensure when the negative diff turns solid, it'll grip hard.

The trick is passed on to me thanks to ah10.
