Hello guys. I've got a question to you:
Do you know if it would be better/feasible using the clutch to control speed?
What I mean is this. If the engine has max power at 10.000RPM. Put 1st, leave it 10kRPM and work out the speed with clutch release. Once the clutch is totally released, you put 2nd (engine still at 10krpm) and you gain speed releasing the clutch.
So we would have an ECU keeping 10kRPM and instead of an accelerator we would have a clutch release pedal.
I thought of this just because you can keep the engine at max power at all times. But I don't know much about clutches, so I couldn't answer myself.
Come back 747, we miss you!!
