Your absolutely right! I see more people do more damage to there clutch before the first lap has been completed then during the course of the race. I know the Yamaha doesn’t like to stay running on the grid or at slow speeds but I have found that if you run the low speed jet 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn it will idle without burning up your clutch then just before you start racing open the low speed screw to your race setting and let her rip.
Thanks for the update that makes a lot more sense. We run 7/10ths of a mile with only one really slow turn and of course if you run twice the karts twice the fun twice the money!
