    Adding a centrifugal clutch to the drag bike.

    Hello all!

    We are looking to knock off some time on our drag runs.
    I have always felt the Toque at Zero RPM is not really translating to the wheels when the motor is stationary in a AC system.

    We have a motorcycle manufacturer that builds automatic clutches for various bikes and have chatted with him about this project.
    I have sent him our specs what we think we need to get the bike to launch harder.

    Please do not suggest more batteries, a bigger motor, etc. What we have on the bike is what we have. This project is for a SPECIFIC application.
    If i had a bigger bike I would add more batteries, a bigger motor, etc.

    We also have the Wife's electric Legends drag car that we might do the same to if this works well enough.

    Questions and constructive comments are always welcome.

    Rekluse makes a slipper clutch for dirtbikes that really help when riding difficult and steep offroad trails. I dont know if something like that would help on an electric
    dirtbike. My bike is way too heavy to really be a competitive enduro bike, but I am curious and wonder if something like this would be an improvement.
    I look forward to seeing your experiment
