Clutches

I should of posted this in a GoKart forum,but when I was looking at Gokarts,I was noticing some have clutches. The ones I've had never had a clutch. Somebody explain to me what it does on a Kart. The faster with smaller engines seem to have them. Help me out,and they aren't shifter karts.

I've never seen a go-cart without a clutch. How do you stop it without a clutch? Shut the engine off? If it has no clutch it will continue to move as long as the engine is running and you would have to kill the engine just to come to a stop.

some just use a belt tensioner on the pully on the motor. Thats how I have always done it. Crude but effective clutch.
