Very interesting idea. Wouldn't this setup be active on all shifts all the time?Well this turned out very good. Made a shock style slipper clutch. This is actually the 1 hood shock off the front end that I used. A friend on mine built an adapter/bracket for the clutch pedal I sketched out. Turned it on a lathe obviously. On the other end is just a simple square tubing piece to mount the straight shock end of the shock. On the backside is the adjuster, will fully admit it’s not the easiest thing to adjust but it definitely goes will the sleeper theme anyway. All in all nothing is visible.
so not to sure how to test this thing but I used a sloW-no camera tosee some changes. Initially it seemed to quick. So I changed the shock fluid to slow it down some, old fluid was 10wt shock oil and I went to a 5w30 motor oil. That is about double the cST. In any event it did slow it down .25secs it looks like. Now to get some testing in and see if it’s enough. From full disengagement to full engagement is about0.75-1.0 seconds in the slow-no video. If all this works, I will invest in a adjustable shock setup so I can better dial it in, basically proof of concept first.
