    That probably would not last very long.  You really need at least a 2 disc for that application.

    So your replacing your disc each race day?  Why not just get a two or better yet, three disc?When the clutch goes, it just cleans the lining off the disc and you buzz the motor, which in itself is not very good.  Btw, the guy who suggested the multiple versions has run  and won about a billion of  these races.  He probably already tried that.

    So are you asking or stating this?

    Everything will overheat and warp, causing unpredictable performance, and ultimately the clutch will be ruined.
