I've got a couple of pictures to show here that were somewhat deceptive from the advertised pics and reality....

The first one is what I bought, and the next one or two are what I got....

These things are absolutely massive....

Thanks Ivan,

Joe (racer778) is somewhat involved with it as well... He helps out all the time... I think you two know each other...

As for the trans work... I have a thread in the transmission section where we are doing this install.... It's a first for a street/race car... your welcome to follow along with it and offer and ideas you may have...

Well, It's time for a new clutch... mine is looking much worse for the wear....

We pulled the trans, and the flywheel is scarred badly, and it all looks rough... No sense going back in with it the way it looks when we already have the trans out... Dang-it...

now I'm shopping for a suitable clutch for the power range we are looking for without it being an on-off switch....

I'm considering the Mantic Twin and the Street Slayer twin or triple....

As soon as we figure out what to do for a clutch, we will start installing the new Trans....

It doesn't look too problematic, but time will tell...

If you go Street Slayer go triple..the twin was holding up to my car ok but you could tell a triple was really what the car needed. I have no experience with the Mantic setup but the Street Slayer clutch was easily one of the nicest driving clutches I had ever owned.

You want it, they make it. But it isn't cheap.
Design is the same used in Funny Car and Top Fuel.
Single, Double or Triple Disc.
