    Are there any aftermarket Clutch Shoes/Spring, like a Stainless spring?

    Get a Buku 3 shoe clutch, install it with your stock clutch nut, problem solved. The thing is awesome.

    Or you can look into the M2C Racing 3 shoe clutch at A main hobbies. It's a little cheaper than the Buku one but both are similar setups. I run the M2C clutch and it's doing good.

    The M2C looks nice and is about $10 cheaper, but the Buku is worth the extra since you can adjust it from under the chassis with the motor in the mount. Takes 10 seconds to tweak the 3 set screws. I don't usually recommend anything this highly, but you can't go wrong with the Buku. It's that good.

    Ahh I didn't know you could adjust it with the screws until I fully read about in on their site. That is pretty slick.

    Yup, pretty cool. Another good use is breaking in a new motor. It'll let you run it slobbering rich with the idle high enough that it won't die when you hit the brakes. Just screw in all three screws about a turn so it's not moving at idle and run a half gallon or so through the motor. Once the thing will idle decent, reset the clutch back to normal and go play. Worked great for me.

    I'm waiting patiently for them to get done with a batch of pipes. Just have to decide if I'm going to put it on the 3.3 or put the OS 21 I have on the bench in.

    There's a high stall clutch kit that consists of shoes and a stronger spring, but I think the Slayer has one from the factory. I bought one for a spare, but the Buku got here before I got around to swapping it.
