    At about 3:44, you ask the question about how long the switch piece lasts. He referenced fatigue testing which got over a million cycles before failure. Is there any kind of metric or estimation to what that equates to in terms of time in real-world use? How long would that be expected to last?

    At 9:06 you present a clutch which is OK, but you avoid saying "centrifugal clutch." AND, you present it to your "physics girl," who likewise does not use the word "centrifugal." WTF is going on here? Rather than pretending that this is a new invention (thus insulting everyone who had a go-cart when he was a kid), you could have been honest and discussed its advantages/disadvantages with typical in-use clutches.
