Question Centrifugal Clutch Motors

Just wondering if anyone has tried one of the in frame two strokes with the Centrifugal Clutch? I see Livefast Motors has them on their web site for $150. I guess I am wondering about how well they take off from a dead stop. I have used the centrifugal clutch Pocket Bike motors on mini bikes I have built, and they usually needed a little help to get going, and I only weight 160 lbs.
I had decided not to build any more bikes this winter, but I have a couple really nice Trek Mt. Bikes sitting in storage just waiting to have a motor put on them. Thought I might try something a little different with the Centrifugal clutch motor.
