Xray 1/8th off-road graphite clutch shoes

Xray 1/8th off-road graphite clutch shoes

Xray release new graphite clutch shoes for their 1/8th nitro off-road clutches. They are made of a specially formulated composite material to ensure a long life due to less slip, which additionally increases the life of the aluminium clutch shoes if you choose to run these. The 2-piece set helps to fine-tune the clutch engagement as two alloy and one graphite shoe make for a smoother clutch action over an all-alloy clutch whereas one alloy and two graphite shoes give an even smoother engagement.
