So, tried to turn it up the other day. Loaded up on the dyno, better air/temp/humidity than the original day, no heat soak; it was making about 20ft lbs more, 300 RPM sooner. The clutch said nope and it slipped on the dyno. There was too much load and I was right on the spec of the clutch. Decided not to beat the clutch up trying to lessen the load, I pulled it off the dyno.

I let the car cool down for a few hours and drove it home. Tried a few pulls to see if it's toast or not and it held perfectly fine. So, nothing is wrong with the clutch, I'm just on the edge of the spec and then the extra load from the dyno was too much for it to handle.

I got a quote for a Monster triple and it's likely what I will be going with. I'm just worried about the extra weight. Going from a 36lb clutch assembly to a 58+ lb assembly. In theory, the benefits should out-weight the cons. I believe the heavier assembly will aid in spool and allow full boost to come in 2-300 RPMs sooner. That means, I won't have to brake boost it as hard, which will save my brakes and my clutch in the future.

Purchased a Mantic triple disc clutch. Can't wait to get it in the car, broke in, then turn it up!

New clutch is installed and it feels great. HAve about ~100mi on it already. Trying to get it broken in by Friday. Forecast looks like no rain for, at least, a week. Finally!

Nice. Clutch swap done via dropping the rear cradle? I need to buy a motorcycle jack to get mine done when I cross that bridge.

Yup. Too much of a pain to pull the motor on my setup. Had it done in about 4hrs, with the help of a buddy, using his lift. 30-45min of that was wondering why I had an insane amount of airgap between the slave and PP fingers. Lol.
