Default Re: semi metallic clutch pucks

Thanks for the information about the comics and clutches.

That makes sense. The stock stuff is ok for me, but I might want something else if I put this motor on a go-kart (no pedals).

re: The harder materials tend to have a lower kinetic friction, but high static friction, so they will grab slowly, but once they grab, they're solid. This feels very smooth while engaging the clutch, as well.
