Leehove JVD-RC clutch system

Leehove JVD-RC clutch system

Dutch company Leehove has announced a new clutch assembly they have developed for 1/8th nitro off road and rally-game cars, the JVD-RC clutch. After 6 months of development and testing by a team including Dutch Truggy Champion Bas the Koninck, the final clutch is suitable for any clutch bell with an inside diameter between 26mm and 26.8 mm and a minimum internal length of 10mm. Delivered as a complete system which consist of a flywheel, crown, four clutch shoes, 12 springs in different tensions (green 0.9mm, 1.0mm gold, silver 1.1mm in sets of 4), the cone, a special flywheel nut and a set spacers to shim the flywheel. The clutch comes pre-mounted with 4x 1.0 mm springs and the installation of the clutch is very easy because the ‘crown’ brings the springs to tension during the assembly, and loosens the springs for dis-assembly.
