BAGTHO runs 13.5 with slipping clutch

Ran the car at Quit Motorplex WA today & ran a 13.5 with clutch starting to slip.

Can anyone suggest the best clutch setup for BA GT? Is Mall Wood the only option?

What other times have been run by BAGT/P in WA?

13.5 @ 106.88, THE 60" WAS 2.188

Don't ask me what the next time was when the clutch went totally out to lunch.

With the Mal Wood set up can you warm the tyres, ( burn out) then slip the clutch to get car of the line with minimuin wheel spin?

Thanks

WOW! thats as fast as my stock T3 does. he he he. just joken, good time mate,
the clutch can be fixed by getting the clamping pressure taken up, thats what Team GT did for the GT and the TE that stopped all there clutch trouble.. hope this helps....
