Hi Haz, could you give me a bit more info about this? Still trying to figure out which clutch to go for
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
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.
