Undefeated mountain clutching champ of the world.

I saw TRS Tony naked. Well hung comes to mind.
Burandt is testing a 25/69 ratio. Snomo intel for ya. Gears are coming from Pfeiffer Engineering. Pfeiffer has a method where they can Hobb the teeth and broach the splines without removing the pulley from the fixture. That’s cool. They got all geared up to supply Specialty Motorsports for their belt drives. Then specialty went dark and left them high and dry with all the equipment manufacturing setup for pulleys I believe. So if anyone wants a pulley supplier, now you know where to go.mt. sledder,
I pm you.
primary and secondary clutch wear part health, clutching calibration, engine wear health (leak down test) and throttle position sensor accurately set all make the difference in how a sled runs / feels.Has anyone noticed if the e start sleds are a bit slower reving than the non e start sleds due to the weight of the ring gear and it’s position so far from the Center of the crank? I’ve seen a difference and I’m not sure if it was the ring gear or something else contributing to it.
I've noticed a difference between 2 new sleds both set up the same. The electric start sled just seems a bit slower reving (throttle response) than the non electric start sled. Not sure if that can be attributed to the weight of the ring gear a long way off the center of the crank or not. The ring gear would be a lot more weight than the lightweight covers, starter cups, titianium bolts etc that people seem to claim make the engine more responsive. The sleds I'm seeing the difference in have none of these lightweight parts.primary and secondary clutch wear part health, clutching calibration, engine wear health (leak down test) and throttle position sensor accurately set all make the difference in how a sled runs / feels.
(assuming the track /gearing is identical.)
heavy vs light primary clutch would take a seismograph to measure the difference. Often clutching calibration or clutch wear part health changes happen at the same time as installation of “lightweight” parts so it is hard to pinpoint the instrument of change.
bring purchase justification into play and all bets are off.
