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.

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.

ok new update. took the larger spacer that i was given by spec and threw it away. I bought a new throwout bearing from gm and put the thinner spacer from spec in behind the bearing and now the clutch seems to work. Won't know till i have a chance to open her up more, but just cruising and going in reverse feels a thousand times better. Car is on display at World of Wheels Pittsburgh this weekend.

for all still interested car is running great. just swapped to the 3.4 pulley and we are seeing around 10psi now. I am ordering the drag suspension from Pfadt next week along with the 9" conversion from Hendrix Engineering. Be on the look out for one fast 5gen comin up!!!

For anyone still reading this thread, I'm planning on going to LSX Indy and have a new setup currently being installed. The car is getting a 2.9l whipple, which has been ordered already and the Pfadt drag suspension and Hendrix 9" is being installed to day. Car should have plenty of time to be dialed in before Indy. Lets see what this stock bottom end can handle!

That's going to be a great event! Good luck at LSX Indy! Any pictures of the car as it sits now?

Wish we could see these guys in action out there:

Update: Car is has the v6 brake swap now, and getting 16" bogart rims with new slicks due to the whipple performing incredibly. The old slicks just wouldn't handle the power. Shake down runs for Indy are this thursday as long as everything stays on schedule!

Hey guys the suspension seems to work but I was unable to really test it out since the Hendrix/DSS 9" kit grenaded on me almost everytime this past weekend. Very upsetting, but I'm sure we will figure it out. Somehow everything but the axles broke.
