Lol cheers for the offer, but I'm good. And that's fine that Garrett say that, but I hope you are aware they are referring to the use of an "electric turbo" in principle in F1, not that specific design (Garrett are not partnered in F1 with anyone) and that turbo mentioned is not even remotely similar to what is actually used in Formula 1.. It's marketing mate, in the same way Mercedes says their EQC SUV uses F1 technology... lol sure the battery tech is POTENTIALLY derived from it, but it's not the same in any of the 4 dimensions. Another one, here in Australia, Shell advertise their high octane road fuels available at service stations with "as used by the Ferrari Formula 1 team"... yeah well.. no. Even Renault have say their Megane RS is derived from F1 technology.... No lol.PlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Thu Mar 05, 2020 11:07 pmGarrett states that this technology is used in formula 1.GhostF1 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 05, 2020 10:30 pm.....PlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Thu Mar 05, 2020 1:35 pm@Ghost and @Stivala
Too long to respond in detail.
I am gonna leave this here courtesy of Garrett :
Notice there are no clutch mechanisms.

Guys remember the turbochargers speed is not as variable and inefficient as in street cars. We want it to maintain a certain speed range to be in boost as much as possible. So the increased moment of inertia is not that detrimental as you might think. In fact a clutch might be heavier and prone to wear and thus failure.
I mean no offence here but I don't think you're grasping what is being discussed so we'll agree to just drop it so this thread doesn't grow 20 pages.
What I will say is what you posted has no relevance to the system that is employed in Formula 1 and is also not restricted by a set of regulations that prevent certain operations.
ie. The use of a clutch is driven by the restrictive regulations and the ingenuity of the engineers to compensate for that and find away around said rules.
I can link the video of the actual Garret rep saying that if you like. Why resist? Lol
I recall that you have been a MGUH "clutch" promoter ever since hybrid regulations were finalized in 2013 so I understand your disbelief.
So rather than "why resist", how about, why be so basic? Lol. I'm confused at your disbelief when you use sparsely related road car examples as evidence to the contrary...
Recall I'm a clutch believe since 2013? I certainly hope not mostly because I joined this forum in 2017 and my first mention of a clutch being possibly in use was late last year in response to Max complaining about turbo lag out of corners and Honda's high altitude dominance?
Anyway, carry on.
