I would try all carbon shoes with gold springs. How is the center diff, is there oil in it? Just an idea to go over the entire driveline. Could be the front or rear CV couplings that lock to the drive pinions. Maybe one of those are slipping. Just some posibilities.

I rebuilt all 3 diffs about 3 weeks ago with new O-rings and gaskets. The drive cups for the F/R are tight. I'll have the car tore down this week to look at everything.

Could someone tell me the order for clutch spring stiffness. I think black is the softest, green, silver, gold the hardest?

Almost correct. Black-Green-Gold-Silver = Softest to hardest

you guys could do this to your buggy and not worry about springs and less maintence. just finished my conversion one week ago. oh and shoes i would get 4 King Head aluminum shoes i think the 7075.. they last long and have great bite.


all my tuning is through the laptop

Default OS Speed pipe choice

For all you guys running the OS Speed what pipe do you prefer and what have you tried that you didn't like, in comparison?

I like the OS 2060 myself, it is a little softer bottom end wise then the 2050. Those 2 pipe's are the only one's I've used with my Speed engine.

We just run the clutch stock, 2 carbon 2 alum shoes w/ gold and silver springs. Have had no slippage except after a messy pit stop with fuel getting in the clutch or over oiling the bearings. They have been lasting great, even in the 45 min A main last week in the Pro series north.
Is your flywheel collet slipping, I've had that happen before. The taper in the collet and flywheel is different and come loose. I made some of my own steel collets, I think the new flywheels that are wider are different.
