I have considered it may be the clutch fluid.... the clutch felt fine on the way home.

19-20 pound through it for nearly four years or 39000km
Bigger turbo and e85
200+ race laps
Over half of those with big manly axle tramping launches
Over 25 drag launches
Jacks Hill.

I'm still on the oem clutch after all this. Dafukyoudoinbro??

Just looked like you were launching it then shifting into 2nd to soon and the clutch was slipping under the torque

Sounds like you might be dragging your clutch a little on the launch. If you are stop doing it immediately or you will be up for a new clutch in no time.

The start/lauching pad at Mc's is very slippery. You can smash that box with abandon off the line there.

Smoothest launches I have sussed out there with my car are with dccd in manual locked fully to the front diff (as even a torque split as possible front to rear). Revs at 5k and lift off.

High fives all round.

That's why Murray calls me Mr Spectacular!

Ok there might be a few other reasons why he calls me that...


Stay in third gear for every turn bar the hairpin. K-go!
