...to be fair that mech was about all through the middle of last year on various Pro Team's Bikes.

It was first sited at La Bresse on Gwins bike iirc, but that didn't have the clutch (at least externally)

Any sign of that SRAM 'clutch' rear mech?

I assume the blackbox guys are using them, or something along those lines, judging by how much they went on about the bikes being dead quiet in the SRAM/Giant test session video: http://dirt.mpora.com/news/hart-neethling-sram-black-box-testing-san-romolo.html

Getting ready for Dave Weagle to claim it is a Delta Link and suing Scott!

I wouldn't think so, its nothing like the delta link. From the looks of it... The vertical member pulls the shock down, and the horizontal link, looks like its purely ther as a structural aid

Yeah mate, just a single pivot with a couple of linkages controlling the stroke. Looks a damn sight cooler than the old gambler though... that thing was getting seriously long in the tooth.

Still tryna figure how it works, other than the fact its linkage activated, Its just confusing me a little (thats probably the tiredness.)

Its a system called hatchet link that Scott used for ages on bikes. Its just a linkaged single pivot.
