Certain turning car parts have to be strong (and therefor
heavy) to resist sudden torque. For certain of them it
to me one could use a slippage device such as brake
pads or two powerful permanent magnets
connected positive-to-negative to lessen the maximum
these parts need
be expected to withstand.It could look
---part A--(MagnetA)(MagnetB)-Part B---
If sudden torque is applied the devices would slip
against each-other until their rotational speed matches.
Otherwise they would provide a coupling like a single

||which parts are you proposing?
||Makes more sense to just do this at the
torque converter, no?
||Like others said this is pretty much baked by the torque
converter or clutch. But nobody mentioned the flex disk
farther down the drivetrain.
