I did see some added benefit from this already. When cold without the cooler, this bike was taking off at like 4.8-5k and then eventually engaging at like 4.3-4.5k when warmed up. This whole time I was riding with the cooler, it seemed to be slipping to 5k basically the whole time. I'll get more videos of this setup if the weather stays warm
I'm gonna drop my motor, tap and plug the stock e50 transmission vent on the cases and then make a vent in the cooler spacer ring so I can go buck with over filling the transmission fluid and keep testing.
I used to make some real fluid smoker e50s back in the day with a properly spaced AJH setup...but that's really all I was doing back then. I'm probably gonna end up building a polini e50 this winter (i sorta seized the stock cylinder and it hasn't really been great ever since lol) and have a jammer, the claw shoes (both types, the race and non-race variants) and some stock e50 shoes that I'll play around and make some heat with.
so I will def be hunting for brutal take off just like my kitted, small carbed and high clutched a35, and should certainly be making some serious clutch heat in the process.
