Is it easier or harder to money shift with a super light weight clutch?

Things that keep the hiortezcrew awake at night....

Here is another vid of bolt on Pray tuned A8 vs Buster.

Thanks. I'll be headed to the track in a couple of weeks to see what it runs but I am hoping to go 10.7ish with it.

As not much experience with it. The answer givin would not be from experience. A guess? Well with hihos FP trans does he even use the clutch at the track except for launching? Lol.

And my guess would be harder. Lol.

Obviously he does. He missed a couple shifts in that vid and with out a doubt the stock clutch tore up his first trans.

A good clutch doesn't cost $2500. Certain good ones do but not all.

If he picks anything less than what we tell him then he made a mistake. Especially for the type of racing he does.
