Clutch question

My Revolt clutch engages @ 4000 rpms. Fun in the open pain in the arse in the woods. What is stock engagement and is there a simple kit to get this thing a little more drivable in the trails? Thanks, Ken

Re: Clutch question

What is your top RPM right now? You can increase the size of your clutch weights only and bring your engagement RPM down but will also lower top RPM. A different spring can change your lower RPM while maintaining the upper RPM (a spring with a lower engagement number but has the same full shift out).

For all the info you'll ever need on clutch tuning, pick up Olav Aaen's Clutch Tuning Handbook.

A worn belt. worn flyweight bushings or the spider sticking (due to a dirty clutch, worn spider bushings etc) will cause high engagement RPM.

Re: Clutch question

Before turbo, I went with a polaris brown spring (70/210) along with heavier weights and it made it sooooo much better! If you got that spring and then got you an adjustable weight set, you could dial it in just how you want it.

My riot had a 85/205 spring in it with 4ea. 37g weights in it and it stalled at about 4000 and would not put any power to the ground.

What was your engagement with the brown spring set up? Thanks Ken

Re: Clutch question

The stock comet clutch is a 4 shoe clutch and I ran 2ea 39 gram weights (opposing) and 2ea 42.5 gram weights (opposing) most of the time with the brown spring. It would still rev to 8000 rpms at full throttle and would engage and move the car at about 2800 rpms. Much better low speed travel and even trails and such and still good pull on top end. Better power delivery as well......before it was all rev and not enough go LOL! Basically, you want the clutch to engage as fast as the motor can handle it.....mine was closing too slow.

Occasionally I would run 4ea 42.5 gram weights and it would engage a little lower and trail ride great......but would only rev to about 7600 rpms at full throttle.

Weights get expensive though so thats why I would recomend buying the adjustable set from Thunderpower because then you can set it up however you want. In the end, I had spent enough on weights to buy an adjustable set so thats where my advice comes from LOL!
