  • MIP 1/5 Scale 54mm Racing Clutch, 8-shoe, #14355

    LONGER-LASTING, PUNCHIER, LIGHTER, and REBUILDABLE! These four descriptive words embody what MIPís new 1/5th scale clutch is all about. As any well aware and conscientious 1/5 scalier knows, the stock clutch is non-rebuildable, its heavy, loses its edge in the first 15 minutes and fades quickly after, and most of all it takes a long time for the motor to spool up and the clutch to engage properly. With all these downfalls and swapping out $30 clutches every couple heats, it was much past due for a little MIP Magic. With months of direct input from MIPís Engineering and Race Team we have come up with a true racing clutch that is superior to that of the stock clutch. MIPís 1/5th Scale 54mm Racing Clutch hits harder faster, its shoe longevity is vastly improved, and when shoes and springs do wear out, thereís no need to ditch the entire assembly as it is completely rebuildable! Itís not a question as to whether you need this clutch, but rather are you going to have it before your competition does? We welcome you to an all-new 1/5th scale reality; MIPís reality!

    *IMPORTANT: Some engines (usually 32cc and up) vary on backspacing on crankshaft length so if you have had to modify the original clutch backplate to be accepted on an aftermarket engine than the MIP clutch may not be compatible. The dimensions used for the backspacing of the MIP Racing Clutch were based off of the stock Losi 1/5 scale clutch and backplate.

      Looks good but I'll bet the shoes won't hold up till there made out of aluminum
      Why because of the way people over gear these cars
      Then throw in the big motor crowd it does not have a chance
      But the racers may love it thank god I'm a racer

      I agree, it might not be for everyone, but the adjustments to the clutch that can be made will make it a racers dream for sure.

      Looks like a good design to me, one proven in the nitro world for years.
      MIP has always brought quality products to the market.

      Here's a vid of the MIP clutch in action. They are also testing some new shocks and brakes from MIP.

      I just watched the video.
      Looked like it was working well, and the driver was definitely very good at timing the jumps !

      Well done. Looks like 1/8 scale buggy style eating those jumps. Is it just the suspension setup or they put that 5ive on diet?.

      I think they just worked on the face of the jumps
      But there bypass shock worked good on 1/8 scale cars indoors

      Very Nice vid. Our Track (RC Acres) is about 3-4 times bigger than that. The MIP clutch looks pretty good for our Buggy conversions as well. They are in the 31lb area. Just wish Horizon would get them soon so I can bring one in.... I use a Elcon clutch and one thing I really like about the MIP is how easy it is to remove it! Eager to see the new brake and shock set ups they have too!
