Picture above is the new Traction Drive/Elektri-Clutch Kit (part#TKR4301X) from Tekno RC. The new traction drive kit is designed to work with 1/8 scale electric converted buggies or truggies that uses a regular clutch bell for the pinion. The traction drive is designed to keep the clutch engaged at all times compared to a normal clutch bell system that the clutch is engaged by centrifugal force as the motors rpm is increased. The advantage of having the clutch engaged at all times is it allowed the car to have reverse which the normal clutch system can not do. The traction drive also acts like a slipper which lets the transmission slip a little. This is a great advantage on low traction surfaces. The amount of slip in the system can be adjusted by the strength of the springs put in the traction drive.
TKR4301X Traction Drive/Elektri-Clutch Kit MSRP $49.99
