Why the torque takes only 150? Please explain.

How much does engine maximum torque exists?

Ambhore Suraj said:   4 years ago
Why 150?

Because flywheel keeps rotating need less power to transmit already rotating shaft.

Well, I know that the clutch connects and disconnects the engine torque to and from the transmission system.

So, I think what the engine produces is what the clutch transfers. Unless I can understand that it has some multiplication effect. Am I right?

There is no roll of clutch plate in torque up down. It gives only same power trasmit which is given by eng. Torque change by only gears.

Testing is done 1.5 times max values.

For any material or design, testing = working X 1.5 times.

How it is designed to deliver 150% torque?

Explain it.

It is designed for transmit 150% torque for design purpose But in actual working it transmit better power.
