the new closed loop code for MS-II looks promising, im thinking about upgrading this winter to MS-II to try out the closed loop stuff.
hmmm good thing i have MS-II . just need to upgrade it to "Extra".

So I need to look for a 1.8 diff Open or torsen before a clutch?

If you haven't noticed your clutch slipping you're probably not at 200whp.

I would replace the clutch before the rear end if you have to choose.

I put in an ACT Xtreme in Mayish...and am still running the 1.6 open. I now finally have a 3.9 7" LSD on the shelf to swap in.

Slipping clutch may keep you from grenading the 6" rear though. I just left in my rear sway bar and small tires to act as a "fuse" for the diff. I'll lose traction before I put enough stress through it to blow it...or that theory has worked so far. I have lots of fun chasing the rear end around.

I noticed the clutch slip at 8psi with a passenger from almost dead a few weeks ago. I don't do that anymore for the most part I'm rolling slowly on to boost rather than taking advantage of my neat launch control. But as soon as I have a new rear end and clutch I want to give it a try.
