Hi guys I'm new here and I'm really interested in peoples cars.

I'm just wondering what clutch setups and gearboxes you V8 guys are using in your land speed cars?

Lee,

My B/GMS uses a Kennedy Engineered Products (KEP) clutch & flywheel. My transaxle is a Porsche G50 5-speed turned upside down.

Lee, my guess is if you get 50 guys to answer, you may get 2 with the same answer if you are lucky... in the liner we had a 2 disc Tilton and a B&J 4 speed with no neutral/reverse module.... don't do much backing up in LSR

Anything that's user friendly, get's the job done & doesn't break. Not a fan of manual trans with a clutch as that wastes drive time plus loads & unloads the car when you shift.

Well Sid I know Al wasted a bit of time for shifting, but anywhere you were on the salt, you listened to the tune he was playing...   grin  cool  cool  cool

The lakester is an airshifted bike transmission, not clutched, but unloaded for about 50ms every shift.

I'm running a T-56. I am going to re-gear to only use 4 speeds. Too big a drop in 5th gear.

Yeah, Betsy had a Weismann transaxle from Noah's Ark.....I mean an old 50's Indy car. Once we got the shifter dialed in he only used the clutch to light it on the push truck. Good music alright!

Ahhs and Ohs --

It was fun to hear the newbies when Al ran.  Beautiful thunder and then no noise (ahh), then -- it seemed like eternity -- the sound increased (oh), at least down by the 3 or 4.

Joanie always came to me when Al ran. She wanted a ride to the 3.5 - 4.5 so she could hear the car run.
