    I do see some advantages to running this type of set-up...

    Does it freewheel when you let off the gas? I kinda liked how your bike engine braked.

    I'm pretty sure it would perform just like my clutch set-up which takes advantage of the engines compression for braking. It should only freewheel when you pull on the lever to disengage the clutch....same as any manual clutch on a motorcycle.

    Nice! I didn't know it was a manual clutch. My son's race was cancelled last minute and I was thinking of making the trip. The weather here was bad so I thought it was bad there. Wrong! My bike is finally fixed and collecting more dust. Hopefully I'll see the old gang at the next one. Congrats on kicking those dang go pedders in the ultimate race.

    Hey Ken, we always have great weather at the races! :)

    Derek didn't race so he could video the Ultimate race which was
    too bad because that would have been a battle that he may not
    have won as usual. Motorized bikes took the top 3 places but it
    was on the full track in reverse of what we were racing that day.

    We miss you so be there on Sat April 1st 2017 back at Grange.

    Here is a taste of what you missed as viewed by a drone, a lot
    more drone video's to come.

    Scotto, I think that is you coming down the straight at the end.

    Thanks Ken, had a blast, nice to have some competition for a change as of late!

    We miss you at the track and look forward to seeing you in April this next year!! Maybe I'll have the manual clutch then to get the hole shot, we shall see.

    Stay tuned, #3 scotto-

    If I'm not working, I'll definitely make the trip down south. Heck if Nashmoto can do it, I can and I live an hour closer. After reading this article, I'm starting to get that itch again.

    Keep tearin' it up Scott and I'll see you next year. I miss those 6am kaboom wake ups!
