Don't have one myself but seems the popular ones around here are the Buku and REDS clutch systems.

The sliding clutch setup like Fioroni and others have been surpassed by the 3 & 4 shoe clutches. They are so much more tractable. I run the Buku in Truggy and Buggy, and love the ease of swapping shoes and changing weights on the flywheel.

If your car doesn't already come with a clutch (Kyosho MP9 does), my next personal favorite is the REDS Quattro. $50 price tag, comes with carbon and aluminum shoes for tuning, and you can buy replacements for most of the parts individually.

Have a look at the Werks clutch as well (believe it's made by JVD-RC).

I run the TLR prebuilt clutches. They are a 4 shoe design that uses two aluminum and two composite shoes.

Good clutch, get them at ebay for $38.75 shipped. But you need to assemble them.

Run both carbon and aluminum in buggy " I run them both in truggy too" smoother, clutch bells are cleaner and less work to clean. With the buku clutch, the bell never needs cleaned. Gets so shinny inside ...You can see yourself. And shoes last a long long.... time.
