If you like when at a race that I am at I will pull my engine after a day of running and show you the wear. After the weekend at Tillsonberg there was NO wear on my shoes or the other Team Associated guys. Tillsonberg was the first race Carl ran the M2C clutch set up and couldn't believe there was no wear. He is very pleased with them.

I am a huge fan of M2C clutches.... They are the only clutch system I have found that has both durability and the snap I like to get....I like the Fiorini sliders, but I feel they really take away alot of bottom end snap...... The M2C also has the best clamping power of any clutch I have tested, it is the only setup I have found that can handle my modified 28's... A typical 3 shoe will not hold my mod 28's for very long, even the Fiorini will run extremely hot...the M2C not only handles it, but will actually give me some respectable life...usually around 1 gallon with a modified 28, and as much as 3 gallons on a .21.... All the time with great an excelent throttle feel

here is a video of one of my 28's to show what these clutches can do

The main thing that i have found wears clutch shoes out is slipping. here is a list of things i find tend to make the clutch slip and what i do to get the most out of my clutch

1)Grease from the bearings spinning out into the clutchbell and causing it to slip. My solution to this is removing the rubber seals carefully and soaking the bearing in laquer thinner or rubbing alchohol.

2)The clutchbell getting "glazed". I used a dremel with a fine sanding drum to scratch the bell after each race/ between each rebuild.

** remember new clutchbells come with lubricants and oils on them from factory so let them soak in alchohol/thinner over night**

3)Clutchbells getting a grove in them. you can check this my running your finger or an x-acto knife across the bells inner surface and if you feel small grooves or bumps the clutchbells needs to be replaced. this will cause the shoes to wear out quickly.

4)Improper clutch break-in. Hold the car down firmly after letting the engine warm-up and blipp/hold a bit of throttle.

hope this helps!
