    Default Clutch

    Thinking of buying Elcon Adjustable Clutch, anyone using this clutch.
    Any feedback will be much appreciated.

    An excellent adjustable clutch, been using it for almost 3 years, trouble free.

    You may wish to get a Titanium plate for it, and also grind down the screws a touch to avoid binding with the bell - though this tiny mod may not be necessary to all bells.

    your other option could be the lauterbacher 4 shoe clutch system which is basically identical, use the lauterbacher in my baja with the tr clutch, works a treat, no slip with the 4 shoes as opposed to the stock 2, and adjustments can be made externaly as long as you have clutch housing that allows you to adjust grubs , easy mod if you dont have clutch housing with adjustment hole is just to line up everything and drill hole ( assuming you have vented bell ) great bit of kit elcon and lauterbacher

    Rajinder, Do you now have a TR clutch?

    If not and you are looking for a new set up it is a good opportunity for me to shamelessly plug the Vertigo Hex drive bell which is deeper so grinding down the screws isn't necessary. If you are using the stock set up currently our vented bell also is deeper. Our stock vented bell was the first bell to incorporate holes to adjust the Elcon without removing your clutch system and we followed suit with our Hex drive to do the same.

    Cheers, BTW I used the Elcon and it was really nice. I lost a screw and just never bothered to reinstall it or I would still be running it.

    All you need to do it put a 2mm notch in your clutch housing TDC (Top Dead Centre) for the allen wrench or torx head tool to fit through. (You don't need to notch the clutch cover if you are running one)

    Thanks everyone for the feedback and advice.
    So will be ordering Elcon clutch with titanium plate and Vertigo Hex Drive Bell.
    Expensive setup but good things don't come cheap.

    I don't run the Baja anymore but when I did I ran both the Elcon and Laut but mostly used the stock clutch, the car is light enough that I didn't feel it needed anything different.
