    Well it’s been a while since I’ve messed with these cars and last time I was auto so I’m not sure what’s the right one to run these days.

    I have a FWD with an AWD Trans, quaife LSD, 3586 turbo and all supporting mods. Car will run QTP’s and do a ton of roll racing and some occasionally dig racing. The question is what clutch setup should I be using? I expect the car to be making north of 700 on this setup with ethanol so I want something to hold but I don’t want driveability issues as it’s a street car that will be driven all over the place in nice weather.

    Car currently has some ACT clutch and a Fidanza flywheel but I haven’t driven it at all to know how it holds or drives. I just pulled it in the garage and started demodding and remodding the way I want it.

    What do you plan to run for a trans set up? How high of rpm do you plan to shift at?

    It’s a TRE built AWD trans in FWD configuration with Quaife LSD. I expect to be shifting around 8500-9000

    Still a stock gear trans i assume? If so you still run the risk of stripping gears at that power level. But for your goals i would contact Tim Zimmer at TMZ he sells one of the best twin disc set ups for our cars i feel.
