another update for everyone. The spec stage 3 6 puck clutch gave out on me this weekend. Debating too much power or poor quality or both. You can see some of the holes in the material have literally elongated. Clutch was rated at I think 520ft lbs. I have no idea what im making as I self tune so no dyno numbers. 26-28psi on a s366sxe.

on to the aftermath




also added in a sp qsv to increase spool a tad with the s366



New OS Giken twin disk on order already. Gonna do it right this time.

Sorry to see what happened with the oil feed line...

Quick question about the DP you had when you were still on the twins, Did you use the O2 bung on it for your wideband by chance??

Thanks bud! Good looking build thus far. I remember you posting on the FB page about the clutch. Spec hasn't had a good name in the Mk3 Supra world. I've seen them fail during a light break in. It's a shame because when they started making clutch kits for the Supra everyone was excited.

Good luck with everything. Love the RHD digital cluster. I'm just getting back into the scene haven't been on here in 7 years so nice to see threads like yours. TY I'm curious to what your future plans are for engine management.

I'm debating on what to go with I redid my setup and being currently on Maft-Pro It won't hold up with my goals. I was leaning towards the MS3 over AEM and by the time I decide another option or upgrade will probably happen. Sounds like your car is going to be a beast and you're really enjoying each step along the way. I know I'll be filling up with E85 soon enough too there's plenty of stations around me just no track :(

its quick. I can slip it a little but no where near like on a single. Its also a lot stiffer than any of the other clutches ive gone through. But it should hold up and that's key. It seems like im playing find the weakest link game til I find and replace things and get a nice, fun, functioning and able-to-be-abused setup

Bummer about the paint. I just performed my first blend spot repair with paint this afternoon. Far easier than I thought. Having the right tools and chemicals makes a huge difference. Anyways, my point is that you can probably get that repaired 98% perfect for a very small investment with a good painter. Small amount of prep work, primer, base, clear, blending agent, sand/buff and it's like it never happened.

On the diff: sigh, I'd love to start doing drag nights occasionally at the local drag strip, but it seems soooooo much more likely to break things once you start trying to launch. I'm anxious to hear feedback on that twin clutch once you get some time on it. I'll need to make a decision on that soon on my own build.

launch at a track and with drag radials will find the weakest links pretty quick. Been practicing some launches on backroads and think ive got it down but the street is a lot different than track. sadly this Friday its going to rain again. Also been getting the itch to sell the car and put a whipple on the daily. mid to low 10s without opening a block is very tempting.

as for the paint I might have to try some DIY paint repair. cant get too much worse I guess lol.
