Doesn't answer your question I'm afraid, but I love the auto adjusting gearbox. I've had a couple of EQ6s in the past, and meshing those is a huge pain in the nether region.... now I disengage my Mach 1 to balance my gear, something you wouldn't dream of doing with many mounts.

Thanks for the responses Tolga and Lee.
Lee im curious why you disengage your worm gear in lieu of disengaging the a clutch? I assume then there is a notable difference between disengaging clutch vs disengaging worm gear?

The axes are notably stiff with the worms engaged but clutches disengaged. I get the impression it's not much of a big deal and the mounts will do well when balanced with just the clutches disengaged, but since I have a newer model I can very easily disengage the worm to get better balance, and so I do.

The sensitivity to balance with the worms disengaged is *much* higher than I've experienced on any mount (including the Mach1) with clutches disengaged.
