The engines RPM is controlled both by the driven and the drive clutch, however the drive clutch is the big player. The driven clutch controls your shift pattern but the drive clutch controls your load on the engines ability to build RPM and bottom line the engine must be able to run at 34 to 37 hundred RPM all the time or you don't get what the engine is suppose to put out 18HP and 29 FT Lb torque. The Response is under powered at higher elevations and especially with snow tracks. This is not a doom and gloom I have a search and rescue that has Response with Super tracks full cab radio and rescue equipment on board and the do fairly well in the 6 to 8 thousand ft range. We have discovered that the #1 position is not as necessary as first thought, most of the ones we do now are in the #2, the "G" is a must in the Response. What we do to the driven clutch I would not recommend the average Joe take this on as a weekend project. The clutch is a balanced unit and must be modified carefully or you can damage your engine. If you get with me off line at docurly@coffey.com I can see what you need and go from there
