So yeah, I was attempting a 0-60 run today, best I came down with was a 8.20. Quite a bit off from where I should be getting. So at the launch from 4k, the car boggs. Ok step it up to 5k. Car slips the clutch like a mofo.

Either the car boggs, or slips the clutch. Then when I shift into second the car just goes vrooooooom at 6k while the clutch just slips lol. My worse time was like a 9.52 or something with a launch from 5k and like 2 seconds of slippage at 6k in second.

Yeah I'm just kinda venting cause my clutch blows. A 5k launch (I slip the clutch instead of dumping it, better for the drivetrain because the clutch is supposed to wear, rather have that go then my differential or something) should light the tires, and it shouldn't slip at 6k in second for 2 seconds lol. This was after I let the clutch cool for about 5mins. I just drove for 5 or 6 mins without shifting.

So basically, what are my options for a clutch with some better lock up. I'm thinking just go all M3, clutch, flywheel, pressure plate. Or can I get the e34 M5 clutch into the mix so it's not dual mass and so I can use it with my normal clutch slave cylinder and not upgrade to the M3.

I know I'm looking right now how much this is going to run me, so far it isn't looking good.

Anyone know if the e34 M5 clutch and M3 flywheel and pressure plate will work together?

Is it possible for you to do it yourself? I know that you can get the clutch kit for about $100. I'm getting ready to do mine in a couple of weekends. Clutches are fairly straightforward to replace.

Yeah I'm doing it myself. 200 bucks for a clutch kit, but I'm looking to go M3 with this so I need a flywheel.

Anyone know how much all the pieces weigh for the e36 M3 e34 M5 and the 325?

Well for 500 bucks I'm going for the clutch masters setup. Basically the sachs kit with a higher clamping force and twice as much B)

I wanted to go M3, but that's going to be like 800 bucks unless I find a used M3 flywheel.

Check out http://www.bimmerworld.com/html/bimmerworl...t-flywheels.htm for some weights on flywheels.

I'm in need of a clutch myself but I think not as bad as you. So tell me what not to do so I don't waste my money in 6 months.

perfect that means the stock 325 flywheel is the same as the M3. So I'm not making the rotational mass any larger. Well not the flwheel atleast. I'm sure the clutch will have some extra weight

He means the fingers on the pressure plate that clamp everything together. Check out How Stuff Works and search for clutch.
