Ive been looking at a few parts to get for my rgv, i found a dry clutch conversion with close ratio gearset, I have absolutly no experiance with dry clutch's so just wondering, are there many advantages/disadvantages to them?
I wouldn't waste the money.
I doubt you'd get any decent performance out of it. Its mostly just wank factor. I've got a taller first gear and new higher rated springs and plates from the tuning works which was sub $500.00.
I reckon the stock first gear is a pain in the ass with how far away it is from second. once thats sorted out (taller fisrt gear from the tuning works and they have stock as of last thursday), you won't have too much to gain from the close ratio box.
i had an SP motor with dry clutch and close ratio box. it worked well and the best advantage was the 1st to second change. But the noise of the dry clutch at lights used to shit me to tears.
Atlas Performance, dyna pumps, " your name goes here"
Yep, first to second change is too short.
Just swap that gear for the one you can buy from the tuning works which is taller.
I've got the cougar valves on mine, and I've put TYGA pipes on. I won't be spending anymore on making it go faster, because for my money, the gains you get aren't worth the dollars I'm spending.
You could go for the O-ring heads, lighter weight everything, blah, blah. but most of that is wank factor again (I have heaps of that shit ) and expensive.
If you want to spend some money on it, get some SP forks. I've got some coming over and they are supposed to be pretty trick (the stock ones are SHIT).
Just go to www.thetuningworks.com/shop you'll find something to spend your money on.
I wish I could get some light wheels for it
I have to admit, I haven't researched it too thoroughly. But I think you can get a Dymag that will fit, but its a size bigger than normal or something. I think it is CraigM on the RGV forums that was going to be using a set of them, and he decided against it for some reason.
Its one of those things that if you could just buy them from the tuning works, I'd probably get them, but if i have to fuck around too much to find a set I'll chuck it in the too hard basket
Sorry, I was referring to the lighter weight everything as being wanky. I like the heads but I think it'll be a while before I spend the money on them.
rattly clutches? love em !
Bags of nails sound is just another thing for the haters to dig on you over.
I say, do it!
"I DIG that sound"
"STOP DIGGIN' on me HATER!"
