Can't argue with that.
Clutches maybe are not best wayto decsribe them. I think of anything that can engage or disengage as a clutch. Basically, if I understand it when you loose traction the "pads" swell with trans fluid "viscous coupling". These pads will wear out eventually. Just depens on the use.
