It's official, I am making too much power for a STAGE IV CLUTCHMASTERS CLUTCH. I guess 11psi and a 100 shot of nitrous is a bit too much for it too handle with slicks. Last night at the track it finally gave. I only got about 5 passes on the night with it getting progressively worse. Looks like I am going to be limping around a bit till I can get the car down to NGM in january.

Now the real challenge is to see if I can stay out of boost on my daily driver for over 2 months :3_frusty:

I guess it really isn't a "bad" problem, cause the problem is that I am making too much power for any clutch out there. On a 100 shot I am making around 450-480wtq, and with slicks it is just crushing the clutch.

The big problem now is if I give the car too much gas the clutch just breaks loose and the whole car starts shaking. It is still driveable, I just got to take it very easy. :3_frown:

So now we are looking into some twin disk clutches that you can make some big power on. Most of the big power supra's and others are using twin disks so they must work. There is always going to be a weak link in the car, I just didn't expect it to be my clutch...lol.

My best pass on the night was an 8.6 in the 1/8 and couldn't cut a 60' better than a 1.9x, but we all know why!

Only an 8.6 in the 1/8? I've made a 9.1 before and you're making almost double my power.

Yeah, look at that, my car is still faster than yours, even with a blown clutch :3_withstu
