Yeah this convert to a shoe style clutch idea is awesome, between jbot and Jake I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.
Less cool but the roller guide showed up yesterday.
Just for reference:
Rollers are 12w by 15 dia
10g stock weight
The plastic guide is just a scrap of trash plastic, I'm sure I can 3d print one that will be as strong or stronger, maybe go to the standard gy6 style 14*16 roller?
I'm not going too crazy with this build, just stock ported, but at least there is something for tuning the weight besides just the stupid balls. If it turns out I have the wrong style of vari to run the rollers, I guess I'll have to figure out how to mod that too
