hey brad do you know what the tq limit is on the exedy oe clutch? i think its at least 180lbs or more. i regularly put a 100 shot of nitrous to mine and never had an issue with slipping and im pretty sure that that equals more than 180ft lbs
Constant load is different than a shock load ... you aren't on the NO2 as you're shifting and the clutch is fully engaged before you hit the go baby go button.
My stock clutch doesn't slip at all at any RPM if I mash the gas. But if I shift too quick and get on it it'll slip like crazy at higher RPM (because that's where I'm making more TQ).
So for you, Maniac, it works. But for a SC car or high HP/TQ N/A it might not.
I'm sitting around the 150-160 wheel TQ area right now and the stock clutch slips. It's only got 500, or so, miles on it. So I'd say stock should be replaced around the 140-150 WTQ area. If nothing else just to be safe.
BTW, I got 173,xxx miles out of my stock clutch and was near the 130 WTQ area the whole time.
I have the CF dual friction clutch and it holds well for my mods. In fact I have about 100k mi on it. I can't chirp 3rd any more but it doesn't slip. From what I remember I thought the stock clutch could hold up to n/a power just not FI power?
