Since my August purchase of my 2006 GTO, I have raced it every weekend to learn the car and decided where I am going to take this DD project. In the course of that, I have had constant slave issues with the car.
8 out of 10 times, I couldn’t’ get the car back in to gear after a full run whether it was a 40 roll or dig. The problem increased as I moved the power up from 375 rwhp (bolt-on) to the 450rwhp (cam, fast, bolt). When the Fast 102 was added to the car and I pick up 15hp, I started to have clutch slippage at 115-120mph in 4th gear.
Therefore, I am replacing the clutch and slave. Since I have been modding the car as cheaply as possible, I bought a Spec “Super Twin” Clutch.
They are supposed to be rated for 700-1500 ft-lb tq. I wanted it most because it is rebuild-able. They cost anywhere from $1500-1700. However, I got mine for $500 used, about a 1000 miles on it from a person I know with a Z06 Vette. The clutch came with the Spec Aluminum Flywheel and carbon semi-metallic full faced material on the disc.
I will let you all know how it goes after I buy the GM slave and get it all installed. I think it will work with my slow car.
I also got a Tick Performance Remote Speed-bleeder coming.
Is there anything i'm missing?
Yes, I know “rebuild-able” is not a word spelling Nazis.
