    The next thing I need to figure out is the clutch situation.

    With the 76mm turbo, I could make over 900 ft/lb.....and from experience it is good to have a little bit of extra capacity for drag racing launches.

    My current CM850 twin disc clutch won't hold that power, so I contacted a vendor to go over options. I was advised to go with an entirely new basket, and either a twin disc or triple disc plate stack. (These are custom clutches from Clutch Masters)

    Another option I'm considering is going to a Tilton Carbon / Carbon triple disc....but the price is nearly 3 times that of the Tilton triple disc.

    Keep it nice to drive. Get a carbon carbon tilton or a mantic twin or triple disc. The mantic twin is $1000 with no flywheel. You can either machine an m20 flywheel to bolt it on or I have a solidworks file I can send you and you can have someone CNC one out of steel.

    The Tilton 7.25" dual disk cerametallic (rally clutch) is not bad to drive honestly, especially when you pair it with a flywheel that has some inertia. You can probably get a nice Tilton 8.5" setup too if you're going to make crazy crazy power, but the 7.25" stuff will hold quite a lot (800 ft-lbs isn't hard from what I remember).

    A carbon clutch is nice, but they tend to wear quickly, and I seem to recall their driveability goes down as they get hot and the coefficient of friction ramps up.

    I talked to people that have first hand experience with the products that I'm looking at. One of them is currently at the Nurburgring.....on track as I write this....testing for the race this weekend. Others are doing things far in excess of my goals, and had useful feedback. Again...first hand experience...or in some cases...I got to sample stuff.

    Tilton triple disc carbon / carbon clutch
    Tilton flywheel
    Tilton HRB
    Tilton 800 Series pedal box
    Tilton 79 series master cylinders

    Incoming.

    Now THAT is quite a stack, my friend! Interested in your decision to go with the pedal box in lieu of a dual master cylinder booster (e.g., Massive Lee) delete to achieve manual braking. I have gone back and forth with that decision on my E46 M3 race car.

    Regardless, all good stuff!

    Best,

    Peter

    Thanks! I'm not sure if I'm more excited about the clutch or the pedal box!

    I went with the dual cylinders to allow tuning of brake bias with the wide range of tires I'm liking to have in the back of the car.

    The Tilton pedals also will allow me to put my feet where I'm most comfortable, and adjust the pedal effort to taste.

    Only took me 10 years to pull the trigger....
