team orion makes an excellent 6 shoe adjustable clutch called the v6, comes with a flywheel to use with it, but you may not be able to use it with the tock clutch bell, as the stock is 25 mm wide, and this clutch needs a clutch bell at least 26 mm wide.

i know it's a bit pricy, but it's worth the money, it lasts a long time, and grabs like a kid after candy, you really cant use the stock clutch with a big block, you need something that can transfer the extra torque better, most big block will just slip and eat through shoes like anything, also wasts a lot of power.

The Orion clutches get eaten up fast, and they are damn expensive. Get a regular 1/8 buggy clutch with 3 aluminum shoes.

That is a good clutch. I've been running it for about 2 weeks. It's amazing. As for the shoes going fast, i've heard the opposite from the others around here who use it. But i say that it is a great clutch. By the way, you can buy it a little cheaper from Horizon Hobby. [link=http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=ORI88600]See it here.[/link]
