Street Slayer Twin Carbon Install

Recieved my clutch today so I figured I'd post up a few pictures along with the install. There is already a Street Slayer install thread the major difference being this is their full carbon offering. I'm pretty much tapped out with the current build and had intended on installing the Monster 5 I have sitting in the garage. I know she wont be able to hold but It would have been good enough to get me by till I could afford a tougher unit. I got a great deal on a used one that had about 800miles on it. Came out of a new Camaro, with approx 800 miles and a TVS installed. No track duty.

I had a Textralia twin a few years ago and I was not impressed. POS let go on the dyno and Tex wanted me to modify it to work. No thanks.

Pretty solid piece and I'm impressed with the obvious engineering that went into it. It comes with a steep 1900 dollar price tag and is rebuildable. Approx 1200 bucks for the rebuild.

A few pics one of the biggest things I noticed vs the Tex twin while the tex twin had 2 friction plates totaling 4 sides worth of material the Street Slayer has 3 plates and friction material on both the pressure plate and flywheel for a total of 8 sides of friction material. I assume this is so when the clutch is engaged you'll have carbon to carbon vs friction material to metal like most clutchs. Obviously I'm no expert hopefully some one with more knowledge on the matter can explain that.

I do prefer the way the Street Slayer floater is held in place vs the pedestal mount Tex


You can see the raised pedestals on the Tex in this picture. Thats what they wanted me to machine down to help my Tex perform.


I'll do the install tomorrow and start breaking in the car. Will post up pics and impressions as I break the car in.

Damn, another jarhead comes "out." Clutch looks good. I'l be curious about the behavior. Some carbon brakes used to have to get pretty hot before they worked optimally, but I suspect that technology has come a ways in the interim.

Thats what I remembered about carbon brakes as well. In my limited research so far it looks like the technology has come a long way since then. I'm curious what the manufacture has to say about the carbon used on this clutch. I'm trying to contact them and will post up what I'm told.

Had to do it man. Funny how the DADT Repeal ALMAR 036/11 just went in to effect 20 Sept 2011, 2 days before your initial post.

Looking forward to some feedback on this clutch in a high HP car.

Thanks Thomas looking forward to the release. Fired the car up this morning I should be putting miles on her today breaking everything in. I'll post up driving impressions as soon as I get a feel for it and some miles under my belt.

That looks like a pretty awesome choice now available. I was looking at the 'other' carbon on carbon twin disc, but there's no way I could justify what they want for a clutch.

The carbon stays in an oven @2000 degrees for 6 months!! It is a purpose built clutch ,not stock parts adapted to somewhat work.I can assure you if you drive this clutch and you need a twin you will buy this clutch.This twin will amaze you

2000 degrees for 6 month wow. One thing I did notice was the pressure plate seemed to be an off the shelf piece. Am I wrong and whats the clamping force?

Ediskrad getting a high hp clutch to have great driveability, be able to withstand high hp abuse and have a decent lifespan is really hard to find. Hopefully this clutch will give me just that. At one point I was getting so fustrated I wanted to just go auto like most others do. It's cheaper and you can go faster but I prefer the 6sp.

I dont think this clutch is for everyone but I think the higher hp guys will buy it if it works as advertised. I will gladly pay 2k for a clutch if It means I can install it and have the reliability and drivability I'm looking for in a 800hp clutch.

It's a steel flywheel but i dont know how much she weighs. Hopefully Thomas will put up some specs when he's able. I know he's got alot on his plate right now.

Initial driving impressions: It drives like the stock unit except it has a slightly harder pedal feel slightly. My wife asked me when I got home today after working on the tune how the clutch felt and honestly I was so focused on tuning the car and breaking the new engine in I didnt notice. For something thats rated at over 750lb ft of torque to the tire thats not a bad accomplishment. I've been told its underrated and will be able to handle what I throw at it. I should be able to start hitting the car with some boost by the end of the week. No chatter, nothing out of the norm.

Awesome Rick. Did you ever get the MOnster 5 in? I'm curious how this drives in comparison.

Pat I had the Monster 5 in for only a short time. 3 days lol. Pedal feel on this one is slightly harder than stock just slightly. Much lighter than the Monster 5 I had installed. Absolutly no chatter or noise what so ever. Easy to forget its there it drives almost like the stocker. Still dont have any info on how she holds but I'll be hitting it with boost and putting her thru the paces soon.

My wife did put some miles on the car today I'll let her post up her own impressions.

This girls opinion clutch felt pretty good. The pedal feel wasn't to bad either not to light but not to hard. I think she's gonna perform quite well in hubby's car. My personal opinion, I like it alot I didn't have any problems taking off in 1st gear, and it was quite easy to forget your driving a high performance clutch.
