More than meets the eye here. The clutch had done so much damage to the flywheel that it was unusable. Originally we were going to use an HPF stage 3 but between the cost of a new OEM flywheel and a HPF stage 3 clutch it was more cost effective to go this route. The CM twin is something that we have used on a couple cars now and have made a few tweaks too it. instead of the FX700 we are using an FX850 "bronze bronze" setup. It has very manageable engagement and is incredibly durable. Pat you should be happy with this setup.

I think the fx850 is a pretty formidable clutch. Is it really supposed to be all that harsh? For some reason I thought I remembered HPF saying they could pair the riveted feramic disks with this clutch. Is that correct. or are you getting some other type of disk material?

In any event, I dont think it will be slipping. Please let us know about drivability.

EDIT: I see Erik posted while I was writing this post. See, he says engagement is pretty good. Yes, I think this was a great choice, Pat. Do let us all know.

Twelve inches on pulled fenders??? Wow, I did not know this was remotely possible. That's incredible. I told someone that 315's on 11 inch wheels was the limit for pulled fenders. You can run bigger tires than 315's? You only need 11 inch wheels for 315mm. 11 inch is ideal size for that particular tire....in 17 inch I am talking about. maybe it's different for 19 inch.

Do you have a thread on HOW a body shop was able to get your fenders flared THAT much??? You are the only car that I know about that has done 12 inch wheels with out serious SURGERY on the fenders.

Too bad about the meth pump. Us E85 users LOVE the meth pump delete. I know that so many cant use E85 for a variety of reasons. That's cool. Meth is awesome when it works.

Funny you bring this up, my methanol system is also acting weird. I'm able to get up to 23psi but my car doesn't feel like it's using methanol and is struggling to stay at 23 pounds.. pump gas at 18psi feels faster than it is at 23psi. It also makes a weird shuttering noise when the methanol is active.. I changed my pump a year ago so I wonder what the deal is. It almost feels like a failsafe is coming on. Anyone with a clue?

AFRs on high boost stay 10ish rich and peg consistant throughout a pull?
meth tank full?
nozzle fitting tight?

Yes, AFR is around 10 throughout the pull, meth tank is full, and the nozzle is tight. Chris K. did a purge, cut and refitted the hose with a new clamp on Monday. The pull is nowhere near as hard as a pump gas pull... 4 out of 5 times I get a shutter, 1 out of the 5 I get a hard pull... oh well I guess I'll bring it back to HPF again next week. Sorry I jacked your thread for a bit Pat .

That's probably one of the ugliest E46 I've seen. It's like an orgy of whatever random race car inspired part was on sale that day, the free stickers that came in the box, and a pre-crashed front bumper. Seriously, is there no goals with this car other than attracting 17 year old high school boys?

Appearances and motivations aside, it looks like that clutch took quite a bit of abuse.

Ugly to you that's fine. I take all kinds of criticism in stride

Stickers in the box? no, I happened to run those decals on the side window as a yearly obligation for them giving me products.

Pre crashed front bumper? No, big rig tire blowout and i happened to run into the tire at 80mph and instead of swerving and endangering myself and others, the car took the impact.

My goals are obviously alot different than yours. And to judge how or why i got what i have is kind of wrong don't you think? I think ive said before....i don't need to defend or justify what i do to my car as it only fuels more negativity.

And ya, as you said, the clutch took a beating, so i drive the crap out of my car looking as ugly as you say it does.....

I don't care who the car impresses or doesn't impress. In the very end, I'm satisfied.

I wish I can use E85 but there's no station near me.....so refueling with it would be an issue
