Help guys. I am using a alum clutch shoe in my truck ... but I am not glad with all the maintenence that it needs. If I just use the truck without checking it from time to time... I'll end up having a ruined cluth bell and a useless par of shoes. Is there any better option that will give me the same response and less maintenence? I know I'll have to check it from time to time... just would like to extend the periods... you know??? Are those carbon shoes any good ? would a three point flywheel change anything?

Best reagards,

as long as the motor mounts line up the crankshaft is the the same size. and the bell housing flywheel and clutch all fit nicely you can fit about any engine in there that meets those requirements.

Hey Bananaboat I'm right there with you.My clutch bell is starting to get out of round and I know it's because of the shoes, even though my shoes are worn.Their just not as bad as the bell. So any advice on the shoes would be great.

Okay, I can buy a new bell but in the mean time are their shoes for those who can't buy the bell.

there no such thing as plastic shoes. if your gonna upgrad your clutch you need bell/pinion what can handle it. mip is good.. just need the measurments.

Well I finally got my volcano sv pro through the break in process!
After 6 tanks i Finlay got to open her up!
I am very pleased with the pro version
Not only is There a lot more power in the Team infinity engine,
But all the aluminum,threaded shocks & larger tires really seam to make this truck fly!
