    Revo clutch problem

    I'm running the 3.3 with a THS pipe and forward only conversion. This thing really runs hard. My problem is that I keep tearing up engine clutches. The pins pull right through the clutch pads. I'm thinking of going aftermarket. Whats the best aftermarket clutch?
    A link would be nice.

    Thanks for the help!


    I know there are probably a lot of threads on this but i'm to lazy to look

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    I'd like to know why they keep breaking. I do have my slipper all the way down Picco. max 26 ths exhaust. Is it the power output or my mechanical no how thats destroying the clutch. I did patch the problem by gettin a new 3 piece alumnium clutch.

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    Well how old is the clutch itself, and its most likely the power the Engine puts out, that engine puts out a hell of a lot of power.
    Back on topic, the MIP clutch is great.

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    I ran the 3 piece integy and it lasted for a long time...Instead of the shoe spring i got the one with the spring that wraps around the shoes. Took a beating!!!

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    The MIP Revo clutch works great and lasts fairly long for a composite clutch. I ran mine with my Picco .26 maxx.

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    I generaly would not promote Integy, but I have been using the two shoe aluminum clutches from Integy for a few gallons now. I am running them on an OS21 and have nothing but good to say about them, and I too went through several composite clutches, including the MIP's. To be fair to MIP their clutch did outlast the stockers!!

    RE: Revo clutch problem

    Well, if it sits there and revs really "high" but does not engage "forward motion"; then yes I would say the clutch shoes are possibly shot. Either that or the springs that go on the shoes are possibly worn out as well. U would have to tear it apart and inspect it to find out for sure if it is or not....either way good luck with it.....[8D]
