Schumacher Racing have introduced the new lightweight titanium layshaft for the Cougar Laydown and Cougar KD. The standard layshaft weighs 13g and this new titanium one just 7.5g, so a significant 5.5g weight saving. Not only the overall weight saving but more importantly the rotating mass is significantly reduced meaning faster spool up time and acceleration. Aimed at racing which requires a slipper clutch, the layshaft is coated with titanium nitride for long life.
