    I have been wondering about being able to use a piece of conduit for an arbor in the past.
    Just one question about the size I will need to get.
    Are you using the 3/4" thin wall EMT conduit which has a .922" OD or are you using the thick wall RMC conduit which has a 1.050" OD ?

    Good data is important when tuning an adjustable for a combination of clutch slip and wheelspeed, but with a 'tamer controlling the hit launches are dead hook so you can ballpark the clutch with just a tach. Also no need for an expensive adjustable clutch for clutch assisted shifts, 'tamer will soften those as well. With the clutch hits softened, a 23spl will take a lot more power than you might think.

    Some might call the 'tamer a cheap band-aid, but there are some very successful NHRA class racers using $169 'tamers to control their Black Magic Nexgens and Boninfante's. One of them even took home a Wally at last year's US Nationals.

    Thank you. I'd really like to run a stick but I plan N/A 850 to 900 then later add 500-600 nos. so a liberty or something is probably what I need. What do you think? And how much?

    Check out some pictures of the WarFish SS/HA 68 Cuda from a few years back. A 4spd car that was setting records and beating up on the SS/HA class at the time. It had big Jerico decals on the rear quarters, and Super Stock Hemi's make well in excess of a thousand horse power. A Jerico DR-4 will run 5 to 7 grand depending on options, about 2500.00 for the right clutch and flywheel, and another 800 to a grand for the bellhousing. But dam it's fun shifting a stick car down the track. Good Luck with your endeavors.
    P.S. these are around the going price for new, if you can find good used parts you can cut a lot off those prices. Even an inexpensive used adjustable slipper clutch can be sent back and be rebuilt to your specs for about a third the cost of new. I bought a refreshed, spare DR-4 from a stock eliminator racer for 2 grand and for around 200.00 plus shipping strait from Jerico i bought an 18 spline Mopar input shaft and bearing retainer and received the full history on the trans.

    If he’s not limited to 4 gears why do it? 5 is always quicker.

    5 sounds good as some tracks are 1/8 and others are 1/4. If anyone as any good used stuff keep me in mind please. A new turbo 400, case and convertor will be 7-8k. So at this point it's going to be what I can get for a fair $.
