Aw bummer. I won't be around those days, but that'll be an awesome trip.

I got a chance to drive my 1st LS swap BRZ this weekend thanks to my friend Ravi and it did not disappoint. Also got to ride on track with him at Buttonwillow.

Well, in case anyone was wondering my trip turned out to be a bit of a fail. Apparently I am making TOO much power, or at least too much for the single disc clutch that was rated for 500 ft/lbs at the flywheel as I ended up making slightly more than that. Car drove great before the clutch started slipping. It was awesome to be in a swapped car where 100% of everything works! Traction, AC, even cruise control!

I've yet to drive any V8 swapped car around a turn but I can tell you it makes driving on the freeway a hell of a lot more entertaining. When you can light up the tires in 3rd with ease every time you go through a tunnel or under a bridge and the looks you get from people are hysterical with that sound coming from a stock looking brz.

I'm going to a Mantic twin disc rated for about double the torque I'm making so I don't think I'll have a problem with it again. Car should be shipped to me before the end of May. I'm off to Vegas with my wife to forget about the fact I still can't drive my car yet

Any updates on the car?


I was just thinking about it since I smelled some of my own clutch after autocrossing last weekend.

We installed the Mantic Twin disk with zero issues. Put a 100 or so miles on the thing to break it in and make sure there were no issues. Started it up one morning to pull it out of the shop and the Tilton throw out bearing started squeaking intermittently. Back out it comes to address that

Let me know if you would like a good price on mantic. I'm one of the leading distributors in my region for them.

I've been considering the Mcleod Twin disc, but I'm still in my research phase- I'll take a look at Mantic as well.
