Default Removing 5.5" Tilton and Installing RPS twin billet carbon

Well as the title says. I ran the C6 at the US41 track rental and did well with a couple 10.58s 130-131mph. Was just getting the launch figured out decent. I made a hit got a 1.50 60' missed second and then things went to ****. I backed up to do another burn out and roasted the clutch. The more I thought about rebuilding it and realizing I just drive the car to much and the track is not friendly for it I followed in my friends foot steps and decided to go the RPS route. My current set up weighs 16 pounds the new design RPS is supposed to be 25 but mine scales 26. It is still a significant weight savings off the crank and i think it will help me 60' better and net more consistent ET. I would like to see it go 10.3 this year.

I think the additional weight will be a benefit in drag racing. More inertia on the launch.

Clutch is amazing! Drives better then stock. Lost a little of the snappyness but that was to be expected. Need to get to the track and see what we can do.
