Well I kinda bought into the craze back in a few years ago... Got a dbr 1 type clutch.
It didn't work out too well in the end, for them and the clutch...
The 3d clutch, is one of the brothers, and it's not all that cheap.
I'm not sure what happened with them, but I'm assuming that it wasn't the craze it was all meant to be...
I'm not surprised at all. They had been talking about releasing a 1" clutch for a long time but never did. Would have been nice to have seen it. Though very few people even knew about them. To me it seemed like it would have worked better than a centrifugal clutch for higher gearing without risking burning up the clutch. Is what it is though. Sucks, but no one knew about them.
It was difficult to use properly.... I kinda wished I had used the money for a 3-4 plate race clutch....
Better spent money for that, and much more customizable for your specific application.
Im also sad they didnt go for a 1" clutch variant aswell, as that probably could have kept the company afloat for a bit longer I reckon.
a manual clutch without a gearbox is about as usefull as a volleyball racket.
Yes the idea seemed nice, but frankly it does exactly what a well tuned in cent clutch would do...
and with that a well tuned cent clutch is the far more reliable and achieveeable item to get.
If yomeone would've made a nice adaptable 3spd gearbox (or six speed) THEN a manual clutch would've been an absolute must have item.
(then again.. a wet clutch in the gearbox case would be the way to go right )
Ah well.. nice idea.. not exactly usefull though IMHO
Glad the transfer of new ownership has gone through and stuff should be shipping. One thing I noticed missing from the catalog is the go kart clutch handle that sits behind the steering wheel. But did see that they add(?) 25lb and 50lb springs.
