My clutched performed flawlessly all day yesterday. It was a solid 1 and a half hours driving and i didn't even look at my clutch! 4 race meets down on the one set of shoes and I'm sure i have almost got 4 more! I love this clutch.

If I got an Acendancy clutch for my Mugen, what quick change motor mount would fit it?

The clutch set up doesn't interfere with the motor mount so u can use whatever quick change mount you want for the Mugen!!!

I have one in my d8 and it fits .The flywheel sits toward the front of the chassis cutout but it doesnt touch anything.The clutch bell i used is a thundertiger item as i had it in the spares box and it covers the shoes and the spur nicely. I had to shim the motor up about 0.7mm because i had a couple of flameouts after jumps. The flywheel touched a rock or something as it is very close to flush with the bottom of the chassis but that will be the same with any 34mm flyweel.

drt_racer5, as Ace mentions the flywheel sits slightly forward but you won't have any problems with your starter box or performance. I run a D8 myself, of course with all the Ascendancy clutch components and bell. Nate

Also, just want to remind everyone that we've got new lower prices on the clutch kits on our website, and new Carbon shoes available.

Default MBX6 fitting

I was reading thru threads and got a bit confused on the fitting of the clutch for the MBX6. Will the clutch bell of the MBX6 fit or would I need to get other clutch bells (MBX5) so that it can fit MBX6?

It depends on what brand engine you are running.
If you use a Ninja JX or aother type OS engine v-spec or speed, you will need the older MBX5 type clutchbell, or the Assendancy, Protek, Ofna.
For some reason the OS crankshafts are a few mm shorter then other brands off engines.
If you run a aother engine then the one i named above then try the MBX6T clutchbell first before buying a new one.

Thanks. I'm currently using the alpha line of engines.

Just checked the parts listing of MBX6 with MBX6t to make sure they have the same part number and they do

Hopefully no modifications will be needed for the Alphas.

Default Clutch failure

Anybody have this happen to them? Been running this clutch for around 3-4 gallons and only had it apart a few times but today I had this. The bottom of the retaining plate broke off.
