Re: Communism on two wheels

The slipper clutch on my Duc worked really well to ease the rev matching and was actually a lot of fun to play around with. It came in handy on the track, but definitely isn't something you should have to rely on.

Re: Communism on two wheels

Why have rev-match when you can have slipper clutch?

Re: Communism on two wheels

no, because it's actually easy to do on the bike. It's nearly impossible to heel-toe in some cars, because of the ****** placement of the pedals. It's not like they're adjustable for distance either.

I do, but it's really more for fun than anything.

For the bike, I say no, only because I don't want to pay for it, adjust it, or have to repair it.

I think it depends on the type of person.

I dont need something to match the revs for me on my bike or my car but something to prevent overrevving, as someone else mentioned, I would be cool with.

Re: Communism on two wheels

I don't get the heel-toe thing. How many here have ever been in a situation in which this is needed?

I've owned a WRX (with a V-2 setup, VF22, etc) and recently sold my EVO 9, and I can't say I've ever HAD to do this. I've even participated in road rallies. What's everyone been doing on the public streets?

OK, so I'm going into a sharp turn... let's say I'm going downhill a narrow mountain road. I brake to scrub off extra speed (since I should know how my car handles), downshift right before the turn and accelerate out of the turn.

What am I not getting?

Re: Communism on two wheels

It would be fine if you could switch it off like you can on the 370Z. Sure, I'd love it!
