Clutch ? w/ edge/smarty
i have an edge juice with attitude and i am buying a smart for the purposes of a little more power when needed and especcially for speedo recalibration. i hear an edge/smarty is enough to overcome the stock clutch's grabbing ability, but can u start out with ur smarty at full power and then bump ur edge up as u row thru the gears? what im getting at is i want the edge/smarty for speedo/fuel mileage increase but want to be able to use the full power potential when i want.
example: on the drag strip i start with edge at say stage 3, smarty at top setting. by 4th gear i could reach over an bump my edge to stage 5 and would likely by then be able to use all the power w/o the clutch slipping. sound about right? i know it is alot easier for a clutch to slip in 1st, 2nd and eve 3rd gear, but i would think i could use the full power by 4th an 5th.
other question is, with the juice on mileage and the smarty on mileage, willi likely see a decent increase over stock, or does the edge cancel the smarty's attempt to inc mileage and vice versa?
