Default Re: Any GP 460 Friction Drive Projects?

Hey Mike,

I would think it'd be simple but ya never know. This engine lives in the high rpm range so acceleration at low speeds is questionable. Clutch engages at 3,000rpm, max torque rating is at 8,000rpm, max rpm is maybe 17000rpm.

I might need a smaller-diameter friction roller.

I ride in the center lane on a two-mile section of highway. I need to accelerate with the vehicle traffic. Then I need to maintain 38mph.

I can do that with "The Dragon Lady" so I'm expecting better from this setup.
