Lockout Clutch

Hey guys! I hope this is the right place for this. So, I'm am still very new to the mod scene. I have never done any mods to my machines over the years and I'm getting ready to do my first ever! I'm putting a turbo on my raptor!

Anyways, my question is this: can someone please explain the benefits of having the Lockout clutch? I've read the product descriptions on tqs, but I guess I just don't understand it. Thanks for all of your help!

congrats on the turbo!!!!!!!!!!! I have one as well and love it which kit do you have? me and my buddy have the D7 setups. the lockup puts more weight on the clutch from the centrifugal force it makes from the weights you put on the arms. the higher the rpm the more "spring" pressure sort to speak.
allows for less clutch pull by allowing weaker springs in the clutch to hold the same tq and hp.
hope this helps

I haven't bought it yet. I'm still working the overtime for the rest of the money, but I will be going with the D7 setup. I'm only gonna run from 4-9Psi (for now anyways).

So, if I was to do anything with my clutch, would the lockout be the recommended path?

On a side note... I can't believe all the stuff that's gonna go into putting this turbo on. Well, not that I necessarily have to do it all, but if I want it right I should and I can't believe it.

if you can swing it do the dual injector kit from the beginning I have a used old single injector kit I did first from mix matched parts but ended up but ended up changing everything over to the dual injector setup best setup by far easy to install we did my buddys on a Saturday in my garage his is a bone stock motor with the dual injector kit no lockup just 3 heavy springs in the clutch. it rips

save the money on the lockup and spend it on the dual injector kit trust me if you can come up with the money.

call bob he is super easy to work with if you need his number pm me

it seems like a lot of work and stuff to do the turbo but once you do it once or twice its super easy

good luck with it

On a lockout, the weights are on cam arms...as the rpm's increase, it throws the weights outward pushing the cam arms against the pressure plate forcing it against the clutch plates, thus locking the clutch.
