clutch shoe question

Hi,, I have a MTX-3, and I just changed to the red clutch shoe and silver hard spring. MY question is what changes will i notice if any? The old clutch and spring were the stock ones. Thanks

You should get later clutch engagement, which should equal more punch on acceleration.

Not really at the moment. I run or should I say try to run out at a track called the Sugar Bowl and also Toys For Boys Raceway. I was at the track today, not too many people showed up because off the rain I was there from 9a.m. to 5:30 pm and not a dropof rain.

I bought the red clutch shoe from my LHS, but I have seen them on Ebay for cheap. I bought a RB from a friend at the track ($40 Bucks!!), combine the red shoe plus silver super hard spring makes the punch crazy on my mtx-3.
