Guess you didn't read any of my previous posts.

Daleon spec'ed the clutch with ATS. They wanted HP numbers. So we gave them what I wanted to run, 800hp. When the clutch slipped, Jon at MA contacted ATS to try and figure out what was going on. Come to find out the clutch was only spec'ed for 800hp and 530 ft/lb of torque. Everything you see from ATS is hp ratings. We had to ask for TQ ratings. So we got one to support 750 ft/lb of torque with a little wiggle room. It is what it is. So, when deciding on a clutch, make sure you ask for TQ numbers too. It's not like MA or I did this on purpose. It's just part of the process. Not many folks are crazy enough to get one of these. I chose it from Phunks advice and experience with his.

I did read your posts but missed that. That's weird that ATS would rate their clutches by hp. And you would think a clutch rated at 800hp would be rated over 530ft.lbs. I can see how you and MA figured you'd be fine. I agree, it is what it is, good thing you caught it now.

I was trying to be frugal. LMAO I should have just nutted up and got the triple from the start.

This is not the only clutch I have seen rated with HP numbers. Crazyness.

I did the same dumb ****. Spent thousands and thousands on the build and saved a couple hundred bucks not buying the last clutch Iíd ever need. Then my kit decided it was going to make stupid torque levels and Iíve been on the ragged edge of burning it up since I installed it.

Jon will have to check what you have in your car. Then you can make an
informed decision. I know you run a normal clutch disk.

Hp numbers and clutches are all bs any z clutch can hold 900hp if you bolted it to an f1 engine. The torque rating of the clutch is the only thing that matters as its a static friction element. An f1 clutch only handles about 300lbft

It is easy to upgrade to a triple if you ever go boosted.
