    Clutch is almost gone in my smartech (pleeeze, save the flamez) Winner 1 nitro car. I have heard that the motor and a lot of the car parts itself are the same as a Hpi rs4. I was wondering if anyone knew if the hpi clutch would go into the smartech motor? I would rather go with the hpi racing clutch if it will work. Thanks for the input,

    Get the HPI clutch and try it, you may have to get the HPI flywheel too.

    Just in case anyone needs to know, the HPI (MIP)clutch works fine. I just had to grind down the raised part of the clutch a bit to get the snap ring to fit back on. Ran the car today, and the clutch is working great. Maybe someone'll find this info usefull.
