    Clutch Advice

    Well, I think my clutch is nearing the end of its days. I am trying to decide what to go with for the replacement. I have 400/400 at the wheels right now, and that is much more likely to go up quite a bit than it is to stay the same.

    What is something that will be pretty drivable on the street, but will still handle it if I want to head to the track a few times a season? I've had the car at this power level for 3 years now, and I've never been able to give it a proper launch, because I'm still running the stock clutch. I do drive my car in some traffic, I live in middle of a town, so no avoiding it for at least a few miles, and I'd like to be able to still drive it to work on nice days. I'm willing to do my best to avoid stop and go type traffic...

    I don't want to say money is no object, because well, if something is going to cost twice as much, I'm gonna need a reason to shell out, but if I'm doing something, I like to do it well.
    I have a website to help people out who are shopping for a new washer. I've taken the time to read through and summarize front load washer reviews for many models. Check it out if you are shopping for a new washer, hopefully it can help you out.

    Textralia...RAM...Monster...Spec. In that order IMO. If you were lower HP/TQ goals I'd recommend the LS7 set-up, but since you mentioned higher HP numbers eventually, I'd stick with a proven mfg.

    I have the Spec Stage 3+ which is rated at 850 lb-ft of torque. It has great engagement, feels just a little firmer than stock, and holds like a ...well it holds great. I haven't done any real hard launches at the track with it as my Nitto DR's won't allow me to, but it's never slipped thus far on take-offs and high RPM shifts.

    BTW - you'll need some sticky tires with that clutch to get a good launch at the track. Slicks or Mickey Thompson DR's.

    Lots of people seem to recommend the Testrailia clutches, including the guy who put my car together, but I have yet to hear from someone who actually has one. They're a lot pricier than certainly a SPEC, so I wonder if they're really worth it.

    Unfortunately, I don't know too many people here that have them. I've seen more people over on the "other" site
