Default What clutch system For 8ight T

Hi,
Im thinking about changing clutch systems on my losi 8ight-T because the stock one wears out abit too to quick for me. anyway, what are the best systems out there? I've heard good things about the werks and the ascendency system? Also if there's a setup i can use on the stock losi clutch that'll give me longer lasting clutch shoes ill be willing to try that too.
Thanks,
Matt

i like the losi clutch myself, try the shoes listed above, i dont care for the composit shoes, they seem to wear fast. if you are having problems going through shoes, try softer springs, black, green, or gold, silver springs are hard on shoes. what engine you running? knowing that will help awnser your question on what springs to use.

Answer-rc works excellent and lasts a long time. Shoes come with 3 sets of springs. Use answer clutchbells also.

Im using a Mario Rossi tuned Boss 21-off-T. The clutch setup i was using this weekend was 4 aluminium shoes with all black springs and i was having alot of trouble getting over jumps where other truggies were clearing them with ease. The shoes had probably 3 or 4 club days on them. Im looking for some thing thats gonna give me some nice snap when coming out of corners but is low on wear.

You were using the lightest springs available. Go with a 2 green 2 gold set-up on all Dynamite Max-Life shoes.

ascendancy racing have shoes specific for losi system. If its the same material similar to the the ones they are selling they will last a loooong time.

What springs are you using? Are you using a old bell? Is the bell getting cleaned after every race day? Are the clutch pins worn?

There are many variables that contribute to shoe wear.

I personally run Max-Life shoes on the green and gold combo and always get 2-2.5 gallons from the shoes.
