Default HR aluminum 3 shoe clutch on 3.3??

Has anyone here every installed the Hot Racing 2 shoe aluminum clutch on a Revo 3.3?
If so, what clutch nut did you use? The stock one doesnt have the groove around it for the springs to seat properly.
Dont know if its not necessary, thats why or if I need to find a clutch nut with a groove for springs to seat in?

I have a 1/8th scale 3-shoe clutch on a 3.3. I use the Traxxas flywheel nut because Traxxas engines have metric threaded cranks where most others are SAE 1/4-28. As long as the clutch shoes are seated and spring tabs pushed “in” as far as they’ll go, it’ll work fine. If you want peace of mind, take a dremel with a super thin cutting disc and cut a small notch in the nut where the spring tab will sit. It’s not necessary, but it won’t hurt either.
