Piktor Rush 2 clutch system

Piktor Rush 2 clutch system

Introducing the original clutch system from the Piktor Rush 2 1/8th scale buggy. Continuing in Piktors aspirational way of telling us about their products they start by informing us how the best clutch to have is the one you forget, without worrying about it and the need for too much maintenance. It must also engage early enough to make the car easy to control, but also give maximum punch to propel you forward yet it must also slip a little bit to make it possible for the engines to breathe. The new clutch system in the Rush 2 does all this and more…apparently.
