Awesome car!!! I saw you at the LSX Shootout. Although the pics looks great, seeing the car in person - it's night and day - Great Job.

How do you like the rear cog drive setup? Im looking into getting one myself. They should have a 1 to 1 set up out in a few weeks. Ive I go with the OD set up I'll end up making 20 psi of boost!! I'd really just want it for the sound.

ya i need to get some money first. i would love to have both, but ill take a dclutch to move the car. Think I should stay with spec twin disc? I liked how it held, engaged etc, and have zero complaints. I feel I just got to close to the tq capacity of it.

can't believe i read/saw those words come from you!!! haha

The intrawebz says the ls9 clutch from lpe... supposedly very quiet, pedal isn't too heavy and lots of clamping force (apparently good enough for the 1200 rwhp lpe car, but rated to 700 rwhp).

or you can stay brand loyal to spec and step up P Trim (1400 lbs rating), ST Trim (1600 lbs), or E-trim ( 1800 lbs).

Twin disks have left a bad taste in my mouth from bad experiences..... I know I will more than likely going with a single disk from monster when the time comes for me.
