hi everyone

complete newbie to the Rotax world ... I know thier motors are bulletproof...but was curious about the gearing

im quite familiar with torsional vibrations and was wondering how Rotax deals with them

few questions:

why did rotax stop selling the c gear box... was the rubber donut system not work as well as the newer clutch system

i was trying to figure out the new gear boxes on the more powerful rotax engine..  they are using a clutch

is this how they are dealing with the torsion issue and how is it working out ... I read that it’s for a prop strike ... maybe the clutch is doing double duty...torsion/prop strike

how do you like the clutch system...do you miss the c gear box?

is there a good link to information on rotax gearboxes?

any information welcome
