I run the Maxlife clutches on my trucks and love them they last 3to4 times as long as most alum setups.For the price you cant go wrong

Makes me wonder how that nut is held in. being able to tighten/loosen it for adjustments you know it ain't loctited. Could you possibly lose it? Is a good idea tho.

so instead of loosening and falling out it'll tighten and mess up the set adjustment? hehe
I also thought of that and was going to put it in that post but I'm sure well I'm not sure but... if its on the market it works. how ever its done.

I wish John would step in to clarify this ( the install the engagement the wear ) over all performance of the Werks clutch.

Werks clutch is good. there is an o ring on it to keep it from getting tight and locking the clutches in engagement. You need a deeper clutch bell like the titanium ones from racers edge. the stock savage bells are 14mm and the shoes hang out the back. were is very good with almost 100% of the shoe touching the bell. I still put HPI loctite on it for extra protection but have had it on 4 engines with out an engagement issue. Right now it's on Brian's Novarossi .28 and works like a champ.

thanks mega for your input, i think your endorsement of a product goes a long way so I'm thinking I'm gonna try the werks clutch setup!!!! and thanks for the info about needing a deeper clutch bell as I'm sure you saved alot of headaches there!! lol

get one of the racers edge bells and you will be fine. make sure to get a vented bell also. just got a set of rulon shoes for brian's to try but the black shoes were great with very little wear.

Shaun - I'd hold off for a bit on the werks setup. Just want to be sure it works well, holds up and last. If not it's money down the drain.

If you do the werks with the black shoes I know you'll be fine. the Rulon I don't know about yet. they are supposed to grab harder than the black shoes.

Very interesting, Great pictures. You will have to do a Review on them as you get a little run time on them.

By the way what gearing are you running they look pretty high(19/47?), are you going for speed?

thats not the bell that I will use

It doesnt fit with this clutch

I will start with 18/47

I need to find the proper bell, it doesnt cover the shoes and rubs on
the spur gear.

I am looking now for a bell.

in actualality you still have to remove engine to adjust the clutch.

here it is, instalation was really easy. Much easier then your standard
3 shoe clutch.

need a diferent clutch bell as John said.
.
these high-perf clutches are becoming a hot topic around here; id like to see a review after you run it a bit & maybe a review on the 1 that bank & jr run & get info to see if the investment is worth it. looks impressive.
