So I bought a used motor last year and we drove it (learned and spun out alot) all year. At the end of last year start of this year the clutch was eating springs so I bought a new clutch for it and now there is literally no bottom end on the starts. I am assuming I need to get the shoes blue printed to raise the engagement point. Last year he would be able to keep up on the standing starts, this year in the first race in both the pre-final and final the other kids put 8-10 kart lengths on him. He was fine once he got going but it took 5+ laps for him to catch back up to the leader.
I have swapped to the Honda motor for the next race just to see the difference since one local series runs Honda’s and the other you can run either but everyone has a comer.
My question is does blueprinting the clutch, ie shaving the clutch shoe down 80% raise the stall speed enough to get him going faster?
