Definitely looking into this over the winter. I can tell you one thing, this motor makes some power...My Centerforce clutch is slipping in 3rd gear at 5000 rpms...Anyone have any recommendations for a nice streetable twin disc or something that will handle 600-700hp???

Then something is not right..I smelled the burning clutch and rpms climbed rapidly without the car moving faster. Can i be making that much TQ? They said this clutch was good for 550 TQ. Can the throwout bearing be releasing it just a bit?

And FWIW I may just deal with the drivability, cause when I open this motor up, OMG the sound!!!!

Clutches need to be broken in properly, just like brakes. And adjusted correctly. And no oil, etc. on the friction surfaces from the engine or tranny or even from over lubing the pilot.

I do have s light oil leak Im chasing down...Now that I think about it, oil could be blowing backwards and getting on it.. Im assuming this requires removing the clutch and cleaning the surface really good.

As far as break in, it said no hard launches for 500 miles. I havent launched the car as of yet. This was 3rd gear slippage.

cleaning oil from a friction surface usually involves brake cleans for the pressure plate and flywheel.and usually a garbage can for the disc.If it was a stock engine I would heat the disc with a torch,careful to avoid the springs.
you can try brakekleens and sandpaper, I wouldnt

Can Oil really get onto the surface from a leak by blowing backwards from the front of the engine?

Yeah, but If it is dry when I go under there what else could it be? Other than the clutch just not holding.
