How do you like the 949 organic single? Rev like a bike?

That's jeff_man. I finished building that car the day before the event and he drove straight to OKC. We never got a chance to shake it down. It was on Tein Flex with the 7/6 springs and handled awful. It was undersprung and diving onto the bumpstops when braking. We've since upgraded to AST 5100 on his car and it was fast as hell at TWS and HHR. Bigger brakes, door bars, and corner balancing would make it capable of a miata record at any TX/OK track.

It's great on the track. Throttle blips now show 4k with each rev and that's with crappy enrichments.
it's definitely not a street/DD clutch.

That clutch puts a smile on my face every time, I think the clutch is streetable but not in your only car.
