    I have read that aluminum shoes last longer, but require more maintenance. I have also heard that they have more positive engagement and more snappy acceleration.
    Remember,they are just toy trucks, kinda.

    I've only had one set of aluminum shoes.
    The friction edges of them wore down quickly and left my clutch bell full of aluminum shavings.
    I haven't used them since.
