Default Buku Clutch Shoe Usable?

So, was having some issues with the Revo, notices the clutch bell was loose so went it and found this clutch shoe with a clapped out back-side. Want to know if it's usable still, or if I should just get a new shoe? Also, what could I do to prevent this? I suppose I can loosen the shoes up some, but they weren't THAT tight.

No never mind, not sure why I posted this. It's not usable, probably best to just see if I can get a new shoe. Kinda stinks. I can see the other ones wearing in the same spots as well...is this a known issue?

Is that the whole clutch set up from Buku or just shoes? I run their clutch(not revo) and have never had a problem.

Yeah, I think somehow to bearing came loose causing it to slide down some and wear the inside of the shoes. I knew it had some problems with the clutch, but took it out for like a tank a few days ago and I suppose that's where most the wearing happened. Wish I could buy individual shoes, but it's fine. Lesson learned, more shims, looser shoes, and better bearings. Of course it happens when most my rigs are having issues. Hopefully I can get this Serpent Truggy built in a few days
