You have cameras lined up for the event? I'm looking forward to onboard footage of you passing people

and on top of that emilio once told me that i was part of his inspiration for that clutch because of the twin plate i run in my daily driver.

I was thinking he was prepping for the next season, Im sure they will do it again next year, Running the last event of the year doesn't give you good season standings. Keep up the good work! lets get some more pics coming!

I was going to do an ACT XT with a 6puck, but once you do the math on that and a superlight flywheel, it's only another hundred bucks to the twin. Mine is a ceramic twin as well - if I slip this it won't matter because I'll be dead from excessive awesome.

Emilio had a single ceramic in his NB while I was there this week - it revs like a race car. I'm removing 18lbs of rotating mass from the clutch/flywheel assembly with this clutch, the equivalent of running no flywheel. And, it's a 7.25", so all that weight moves inboard which reduces the moment of inertia even further.

That was always my point. When I was shopping for clutches, it was only a little bit more expensive to run the twin plate than it was for a high power normal clutch and lightweight flywheel.

I love to blip my throttle when I pull up next to motorcycles. BRIM BRIM!

oh and sav, you wont slip that cerametallic disk. you get two choices: bog or boil rubber. sucked ***** on a daily driver.

your shifts should be blindingly fast on the track though.

Sav do you even drive your car on the street? Looks like a dedicated trailer car to me. But that dose not mean you cant

It's insured and registered, but I'm deathly afraid of getting it impounded. It's got numbers, a huge wing, and no exhaust to speak of. Last time I drove it on the street was June, and I drove it about half a mile to the grocery store and back. It's up for smog in 2010 and I don't think I will be renewing the registration.

That's the hope. I'm sending my tranny in tomorrow to have the synchros and 5/R shift fork replaced, so it should be really good. The single was ceramic too, and it engaged more quickly than a 6-puck, but not as abruptly or roughly, if that makes sense. Emilio says the twin is a bit better - nasty fast shifts on track (he says he can stay 3/4 throttle and kick the clutch, and the rev drop is perfect) and still able to slip it onto the trailer at the end of the day.

I've been using it with the lower cushion in, but I'm going to try without it since it lowers you much further in the car.
I'm thinking about the Sparco Circuit VTR, slightly smaller, thinner cushion:

Slow but sure progress. Just buttoning things up now. Need to finish the wiring and get the dash into it tomorrow, then off to the alignment shop tomorrow or Saturday.

I had my doubts on the color, but it looks great. Can't wait to see it with some contrasting black.
