Need help with team clutch setup

Is anyone else running a team clutch in their Revolt. I just received a team clutch from mike and curious what weight I should use on the clutch weights. I have the Rooster adjustable weight set so I can pretty much set it up with any weight. I'm sure I'll have to tweak it some but hoping someone might be able to help with a number to start with.

Thanks,
Troy

You need to say if you are turbo charged or normally aspirated. What is the base weight that you are starting at? What max rpm are you shooting for?

Re: Need help with team clutch setup

normally aspirated. 52 gram weights to start. 8100 max rpm. Mike sent me a starting point but still curious what others are running. 90% of my driving is in the sand if that makes any difference.

Since you are normally aspirated I would start with no added weight at all. You are at 156 grams total and that is what a stock Revolt with a Comet Pro 4 is set up at from the factory. A 3 arm clutch is usually 10 to 15% less total than a 4 arm. I have seen it the other way around though. Adjust each position one at a time like your instructions show to get your 8100 rpm and the car moving at around 3 to 4 grand or whatever you prefer. It seems like every car is slightly different. I start at the heel (close to the pivot point), then the middle and last the tip position.

Re: Need help with team clutch setup

That email I sent you should have given you should put you in the ballpark...The engine was N/A in the car.

Re: Need help with team clutch setup

Mike I set it up based on the email you sent me using the #1 test setting. I need to get shorter bolt that holds the clutch on. I did a temporary fix by drilling a nut out to create a spacer. The stock Redline one is 3/4" too long. I also noticed that the clutch sits in a different location. It's about 1/4" closer to the engine. So I can only assume that I need to move the driven clutch over to match it up which should be 5/8" offset between the two like it used to be. Correct?

Re: Need help with team clutch setup

Does it look like the center of the primary moved a 1/4" too? or is the back of the Team jut a little thicker. ...Funny I am having a brain cramp and can't remember. Otherwise yes 5/8".

Now for the spacer... Check this part number out...Polaris 5132441 Clutch retaining Washer/Spacer. I think this will work for you. I cant recall anyone mentioning the spacer issue before. The Team clutch resembles a Polaris clutch in some aspects. This is a part number of the clutch they use on the FST snowmobile...They are on E bay and Amazon.

I also have new Redline Clutch bolts is you chose to go a different direction.

Well the new clutch worked out great! I only made one change to the initial weight setup. I'm sure I could squeeze a few mph out of it but I am happy with the outcome. I started out with 52gram weights with the 2.5g closest to the pivot, .8 on the outer 2 positions. I did a quick test run and was bumping the rev limiter real quick. I replaced the .8 with a 2.2g in the middle and it was perfect. Top RPM is 8100 at roughly 60mph using the stock Redline gauge. I'm not sure how accurate that gauge is though. The Team clutch is SO much quieter.

I adjusted the driven clutch in a 1/4" to meet the 5/8" offset spec. The team clutch looks like it might have a slightly thicker back plate like Mike said. I checked the temp on both clutch faces and was in the 140-150* range during each run so I wasn't worried about the thicker back plate while I was out on our trip. I'll get a pair of calipers and see exactly how much thicker it is.

Mike when I first installed the clutch I could have just used the stock redline bolt. The problem I saw was that the bolt would have only been holding the clutch on by 2 or three threads because the threads don't run the length of the bolt. It's hard for me to explain, I'll have to post a picture to better explain myself.
