AP Racing do a HD clutch kit (or the separate bits) but as Jim says - it's the same basic 240mm clutch using since 1972 right up to the 2.9's - so early 90's. That means it can cope with the genuine 150bhp or so of the 2.9i and the strain of a 4WD system and lugging a Ford body around..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

The same clutch as used in xr4x4 2.9s fit that have low lift stamped on them and I can personally vouch for them to 200 bhp of naughty driving in both 4x4s and scrims

Best times.As some were hand timed allow a couple of tenths variation. At best I would say conditions were at least a second off ideal

Steve Oakes 74.3
Josh Oakes 72.2
Paul Andrews 70.4
Mike Beacham 74.2
Simon Beacham 74.9
Paul Mellows 75.9
Phil Andrew 70.5
Jim King 74.3
John Louch 66.2
Brian Crouch 74.01

Best time of day John Louch's very impressive 66.2. PHil Andrews, the Beacham boys and Josh's times would make them competitive in the Championship.

See you in August :wink:

There you go, Mikey - get that 4 speeder back in and out for August!

There's a big "74" club there, I see...

:lol: I knew Paul was posting some very good times, but that stings a bit. They always say it's about trading tenths, I can see where the thrill comes from now..... 'tis rather addictive!

I shall hopefully have my car on the rolling road in the near future for a setup, but more interesting will be seeing what it's currently putting out. In the SSC it could be rather competitive on handicap.

Just goes to show what Craig and Nick keep saying about the CVH....assuming Paul's car is running stock, then if you're kicking out less than 130 horses, that would be a Handicap victory?? pretty sure those aren't 1B's you're running on the steelies?
