Help me out Gordy....I've never owned an autoclutch and wonder why it wouldnt be as good as a regular clutch? What are its downfalls? Rekluse says their 3.0 version has same feel as a stock clutch and sounds like you'd have the best of both worlds...i.e. stock functionality with ability to ignore the clutch if fatigued late in the day or if in a big rock garden. I'm contemplating one, hence why I ask.
