Default 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

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.

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.

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!!!

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

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!!

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]
