I agree with you on the torque issue and I'm looking into that now. . .the V-twin engines make a more torque than the I-4 sportbike engine do, but you sacrifice HP for it. . .plus they start out with even less displacement. . .
. . .there is a guy on here with an RC51 powered tube chassis UTV with Rhino bodwork. . .he's eating clutch plates though. . .I'm trying to help him out with that one. . .need to find him a lock-up clutch for an RC51. . .
Hey guys what class and series are you racing in. . .obviously not SCORE Class 10. . .
BajaTex. . .if I sent you my buddies email addres or just told you his screen name on this forum would you being willing to talk with him about his clutch issues. . .he just ran the Baja 500 as well. . .
Id venture to say VW's are putting about 160 hp and Hondas are putting out about 200. Like said the Hinda has alot less torque and the VW makes more torque but less HP.
