I'll be trying it in a couple of weeks.

I have been told that it works great BUT it requires more maintanence. Requires you to "clean" up the surface area as it glazes up after only a day of racing.

I have it in my Mugen MTX-3. Two races...so far no problems....it gives much better acceleration than stock one..it weights 14 grams less, plus I have it with a lightened flywheel and the whole set up is amazing.

They do need more maintenance and the right clutch shoe - usually softer. When they are tuned properly, incredible punch. Also, when breaking in a new clutch shoes, they can glaze very easily, take it slow until it forms to the clutchbell. Only used it on my MRX4, not TC, but I may try it at GLC.
