Question
Will these clutch shoes work on a TRX 2.5R?

Hi everyone!
I have a Traxxas T-Maxx Classic with a TRX 2.5R Nitro Engine.

My question is:
Will these clutch shoes/springs fit on the stock flywheel / clutch bell?

Those are for an HPI I would stick with the Traxxas to be on the safe side. Or a Traxxas specific aftermarket set of shoes.

Yeah, i know, but I don't like the type of springs they use. They break constantly... They break after every 5 - 10 tanks of fuel... The shoes will be in good condition, but the springs just keep breaking... I have about 5 sets of clutch shoes laying around, but no springs cuz they keep breaking.

I just want something that will last longer.

I just checked and those won't work. The springs are set into a groove on the crankshaft nut. And the clutches are taller then the Traxxas ones. So your bell housing won't fit . You would need an HPI crankshaft nut and you would have to cut your crank on the Traxxas 2.5 engine I would look in to a after market assembly for the Traxxas something like this

It says that system uses the stock spring.
But that's what I'm trying to get rid of, is the stock spring

Not sure with out looking at it . Integy say's its for the Tmaxx I have the stock springs in mine. It may use the threads on the crank or have an adapter of some kind. I might call the LHS and see
