Default HappY MeaL Installed!

And I am Happy! I called carolina clutch up and gave them the vin. The clutch was rated for 307ft/lbs of torque. They said if I ordered the puck disk, it was rated for 390hp.

I like the street disk. Man it engauges QUICK! No slipping ANYMORE!

Now I just need to install my new MBC in the morning, and I'm good.

I had a new rear main installed while my mechanic was at it!


TEST RACE/
Even at wastgate first gear was usless. My brother handed it to me in his S/C on take off. I hit second same thing, then it grabbed traction, fell on it's nose and then started screaming. I passed him in third.

I can't wait to see what 13PSI with a practically new clutch will do!

By happy meal installed do you mean an ACT ZM2-XTSS was installed?

Did you even break the clutch in before racing your brother?

The clutch was used, and yes it is the clutch and flywheel from FM.

I didn't experience any slipping. The clutch held up great. Of course I was at 6psi. The clutch is way harder to push. But I like IT!

I can't believe how much faster the car is. I can't wait to turn the boost up.

ACT clutches don't need a break in period supposedly, specially not a used one. I might baby it to make sure all is well for a couple miles but then i would proceed with abusing it as much as possible from then on.
Boost on.
