pretty cool. I was always curious how to do this. I agree with CaptainSlug, I would have expected a keyway ground into the spline off the clutch plate, but as long as the welds are strong enough, it doesn't matter!
Does the electric motor drag at all when you shut it off? I thought the EOC-ing would still be something you'd want to do if you could, and wouldn't that allow you to change gears? Of course, putting a clutch on that would be very hard.
