    Clayton and i have been running the xrc clutch now for some time available from Modelworksrc with great results. They seem to grab just as hard as the cy or zen clutches. At the same time they are lasting a very long time. We have results of less then .2mm of wear, running a few tanks in a fine sand pit.

    The only thing to remember, is that these are like the zenoah clutches. You will need the zen mount, or ask Modelworks if they can also send the mount

    We were out for 3 hours today, the XRC mic'd out at 4.9 before we left and is at 4.22mm after the day in a sand pit.

    There is a problem we are having, the XRC clutch came unglued from the shoe rendering it useless.

    The material is hard and will last, the glue they use is not so good, atleast on our set of shoes.

    Time to look for a new clutch!! :(

    Good news is my carrier bearings haven't been cleaned in 5 hours and are still smooooooooooth!!!

    Carrier bearings will get gritty, possibly seize because they get over 100 degrees.. If you keep them clean they won't spin in your carrier causing it to melt prematurely.
