Down at Irwindale tonight with the bug.... she ran good but im having a seriuos clutch slippage problem... I cant shift hard or go over 12psi or the clutch just gives up... No slicks but still cut a decent 60 foot,

best run of the night:

r/t .780
60' 1.724
330 5.241
1/8 8.241
mph 88.49!!!

going to switch to a 4 puck clutch and up the boost i think a 7.9 isnt a ureasonable goal...

If you have a little extra to spend on it, you should get the black magic disk with a kep stage 1 pressure plate. This combination has the pedal pressure of the stage 1 with the clamping pressure of a stage 4 with a 4puck disk. It also is designed to slip a little before it grabs to take some of the shock away from the transaxle. It is made from the same material the top fuel clutch disks are made of. The biggest problem with it is the $180 price tag, they have them at www.vwparts.net or you can find them on thesamba.com in the performance parts section.

Nice times by the way one day my 62 will be finished with a turbo stroker.
