engagement just gets you a holeshot,, your speed comes into gearing and secondary shiftout., unless you have pipes,, then you need to get to your "target" rpm for where the pipes make the most power. then you get more into your primary weights and stuff.

Engagement is all about your primary spring, but with different springs you can change much more than just engagement. Changing springs can change your mid range and finish. Buy a racing manual for your sled and you can get a good idea of what spring you want, but changing the engagement isnt really going to help you out all that much. Give you a little more mid range.

You mean you want ME to do some clutch work for you.[:D] And clutch engagement will not affect your top speed if all you change is the spring. All you do is get a spring with the same finish rate as stock.

Dont worry Jesse, well clutch your sled this fall. Also, dont forget you need a new/better track first. If we clutch your sled with the track you have now youll just rip the rest of your lugs off.

Where you want your engagement depends on what you're doing. If you're after a real hard hole shot you might go as far as notching the weights to give a high (5-6k engagement) with the same weight profile as you had before which would give the same mid range and top end performance.

I on the other hand don;t need a good hole shot, in fact I hate the high engagement on my IQr, makes it really bad for boondocking. So I am going to be dropping the engagement to be around what a stock 600 XCSP would have.
