1/5 54mm Racing Clutch, 8-Shoe (MIP14355)
LONGER-LASTING, PUNCHIER, LIGHTER, and REBUILDABLE! These four descriptive words embody what MIP’s 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 MIP’s Engineering and Race Team we have come up with a true racing clutch that is superior to that of the stock clutch. MIP’s 1/5th Scale 54mm Racing Clutch hits harder faster, its shoe longevity is vastly improved, and when shoes and springs do wear out, there’s no need to ditch the entire assembly as it is completely rebuildable! It’s 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 1/5thscale reality; MIP’s reality!

*IMPORTANT: #14355 MIP 1/5th Scale 54mm Racing Clutch was desgin for 32cc and lower engines. Some engines vary on backspacing of 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 1/5th scale clutch and backplate.
