Pre veto used to be the way to go for high power because you could run a grey cover or a double grey. But these would chew through your thrust bearings. A pre Vero is lighter to.

But an RTS which is a homemade twin spring verto clutch is the way to go now! Candle handle loads of power and torque 200+ is lighter then a double grey on the foot.

A couple of people will make them now if you supply the bits. I have one in mine with a minispares lightened verto flywheel

Hi Haz, could you give me a bit more info about this? Still trying to figure out which clutch to go for
 
Pre verto is what was the go to because you could stick a grey or double grey in and it would handle the power.

But the RTS is much better, its like running a T3 turbo comparing it to the GT17/20.
 
Thats the original thread on the RTS. It basically requires 2 verto clutches to make one. You need some other bits and pieces to. But those are the main bits.
 
Where abouts in Cumbria are you?

I'm in a village called Caldbeck, near Wigton.
So far I've got the turbo, block, pistons, carb and rods so I've still got a long way to go. I've asked Phil for a head and rebore too so those I can cross that off too.

 

 

Im in Carlisle if you ever need out. Mate of mine who has about 5 minis between him and his g/f lives out past waverton to.

That's great cheers! I'll be needing as much help as I can to be honest, haven't built an engine before and still got a while to go before I've bought all the parts.
