Let's assume you have two very equal drivers, with very equal chassis, engines, chassis setups, and tires. They should turn nearly identical lap times. Let's assume you're one of these two drivers. Would you rather be in front going into turn 1 or 5 kart lengths back? That's why every racer that doesn't do their own clutch work needs to have a "clutch man" and maintain a good relationship with him. Keep that clutch fresh and tuned in. Don't give up positions on any lap, including the first.
And that’s only one of the reasons you guy’s are so good at what you do.here at Jammer when we rebuild a clutch we have a scale built intoo our dyno so we can check the rpm's and foot pounde of pressure the clutch is putting at the rear axle. that way we can tell the clutch owner the clutch is engageing at 3800 rpm. with 36 foot pounds at the rear axle. it takes a little longer to dyno but it shows at the start of the race
