Yes, I started Googling and saw that Tilton triple was what Lambo FI uses.

I am liking the OSG that Marcus is using more and more. It is too bad the custom RC4 does not fit your car. There is not a ton of research on BMW's running 1200hp and 1000 ftlb of torque. That is an estimated figure Tom, isnt it? Your max so far has been 1000hp/800tq. Why build something so powerful that is just wont be any fun to drive(Tilton)?

You CAN always go auto like so many of the Supras and the HPF drag car. But you will loose so much in the drive train you will back where you started..maybe.. Rebuilding a super expensive, notchy clutch every 10k miles sounds like more trouble than its worth.

Did you ever PM that guy in Sweden who has so much power and runs a clutch? There may be an answer yet.
