A lot of Mugen drivers have the same problem...I did. Maybe an aftermarket clutch setup is the answer? I don't know and gave up. My Mugen is electric now...and I'm happy.

you'll want to run the softest spring's you can find......9's preferably .28's dont need any help on the bottom end with stall....All you will be doing is slipping the shoes...heating up the clutch...and failing the bearings'......proper stall is key for keeping the clutch cool.

get a new clutch bell.....chances are your bell is worn out and allowing the outer race of the bearings to spin...
