Wondering if anyone is running DR's with there factory gt clutch still, im going to be upgrading mine at some point but was curious as to how long it would take to destroy the clutch with these tires?
If your clutch "explodes" its a manufacturing defect. Drag radials eat axles and input shafts, slicks eat clutches.yeah eagle ive read that to then i see a bunch of guys have no problem, one of my friends said if you run an agressive clutch you can still run drag radials just dont heat them up so they still slip a little but never have so i dont know im just worried running a drag radial im going to explode my clutch and be broke down somewhere but i see people running them with stock clutches so i dont know just wondered how much abuse it would take
So you think WOT in fifth gear creates more stress than my 5500 RPM clutch dumps on nitrous with 1.51 60 times? Interesting.A hard launch can and will break them with enough traction and power but the load is short and metal is elastic so I can return to its original shape to a point. Im 5th gear, you are potentially running at full load in a very tall gear for a long time so the shaft has more time to twist to failure. This is the conclusion I have come to after some discussion and my engineering knowledge. After all some people break with lil power while other have tons and never have a problem.
