Should we use a clutch or clutch-less? That is the question for today.
My thinking is that especially for our early builds we are going to use a clutch. The main reason is that it just seems logical that the vehicle will be easier to for anyone to get in and drive. And that is my main goal for taking all of this on. To have a gas less car that will carry me back and forth to work everyday. To have a car that my wife and soon to be of driving age kid(s) will be able to get around in.
I plan on testing a clutch less EV for sure. So we will probably end up making on of the two Toyotas clutch less and compare the difference driving.
Just as I was going to consider clutch less I found this
Since new, the car has had brief power drop-outs. I will soon try replacing the Curtis controller with a Logisystem.
This car is clutchless. Up shifting is no problem. Down shifting, without a tachometer, is difficult. If I had it to do again, I would get a clutch. here
