Novarossi Buggy Clutch

Novarossi Buggy Clutch

The new Novarossi Buggy Clutch is available and we have one on hand to give you a first look at what this 4-shoe clutch has to offer. When RC Driver visited the Novarossi factory for a tour during the summer of 2014, we were shown this new Buggy Clutch in prototype form. When we asked why offer a clutch when vehicles already come with a clutch we were given a few reasons. The first was that Novarossi had seen evidence during testing that out of balance clutches can lead to excess wear and tear on the clutch and even the engine and that could possibly lead to worse consequences like parts or engine failure. Novarossi felt that they could also offer a clutch that would result in better engagement performance, acceleration and traction.
This sounded great but now that we have the clutch we can see there is a lot more to this new performance clutch. Check out the photos for additional details and impressions. The Buggy Clutch is available now through REX-USA for $89.99.

The clutch must be removed from the engine to disassemble it. Once its remove, pull up on the “spacer” and then give it a twist to unlock the springs.
