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'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.
