There are probably others better qualified to help you for certain - the UMTR forum is pretty good.

I loosened mine up a couple more turns and burned it up.  Talked to Tim Hyatt and he said I had the wrong parts in there - too small a diameter, not a high enough friction material, and a sprung hub.  I think the guy I work with at McLeod underestimated the car?

The combination Tim supplied seems to be better on the street so far - I need to get out to the track with it.  Very different setup with shims under the plate and a far thicker disc.  Gave me some problems assembling - not enough clearance between the fork, plate fingers and the bellhousing to get any free play.  Ended up making a spacer between the block plate and the bellhousing, trimming the input collar on the trans, and trimming the fork itself.

Missed this from a long time ago - sorry.

Clutch is working, but probably not correctly.  I am still too tight - not slipping enough, and yet the car still leaves like a overloaded barge stuck in a mudbank.  I will pull things apart over the winter and try & figure out what I am doing wrong.

Couple of questions for you Barry.
How was the clutch working for you?
How much did you try tuning it?
Any do's and don'ts.

Edit: for pic
