The Team clutch is pretty mint. I usually check out everything a few times a year. Will probably replace the spring this year - not because it needs it, but just because. I'm very fussy.
I don't know what to say, but when I had the heavy hitters in it in combination with the TEAM, the sled ran differently everyday depending on the terrain, temp, etc. I didn't know whether to blame the TEAM roller clutch or the weights. For a quick comparison, I threw in a set of Polaris weights and the problem went away. Much more consistent and forgiving. I have no doubt in my mind that for straightline racing, the heavy hitter would probably work better, but for the everyday trail rider, I was annoyed by how many times I had to make changes to the weights to get the sled to run consistently. One morning I thought I had it perfect. By the time the afternoon rolled around, the temp went up and the sled had a hard time pulling the weight. It was extremely frustrating. I spoke with TEAM directly and they told me to stick to a Polaris weight. That's what they test with, thats what they recommend. :dunno:
The TEAM cluth is so sensitive to changing conditions. It upshift very quickly and in combination with the hitters, it was too much or too little depending on what the secondary clutch was sensing.
My main concern is that I don't want to spend $100 on a set of Cutler's to have them sit in my toolbox.....only to sell them later for a big loss because they didn't work. I'd like to get a set to try, but the expense is a little steep for a "might work" scenario.....
