TLR 8IGHT Aluminum clutch shoe maintenance
This week I would like to talk about Aluminum clutch shoe maintenance for your Nitro TLR 8IGHT rides. A TLR 8IGHT clutch can take a good amount of running before maintenance is needed. Here is what I would do before a big event and before the main event to keep my clutch in good working order. First picture is my Aluminum clutch shoe after about an hour of racing. Second picture is after maintenance prepping for my main. In the second picture, you can see that I have used a dremel on all three edges and I used some scotch-brite to clean the top of the clutch shoe. This will help your clutch work correctly and gives you a consistent feel throughout your race.
P.S. This maintenance can also be done to your composite clutch shoe as well.
