      If your clutch slips at high RPM, do you have enough free play in the adjustment?
      Is it used/old, or replaced with a re-manufactured, or new assy? I'd avoid a reman clutch for high performance applications.
      Our company X1/9 race car uses a aftermarket, new, stock type clutch assy.  It's a respected manufacturer, and has had no problems. The clutch has 10 HARD races on it, 6,500 to 8,500 RPM is the normal engine range, and a few 9,000 RPM runs when shifting point has to be extended. Clutch is for the 1500CC engine, maybe that's what you'll have to do. Don't know if you can redrill the flywheel. The 1500 disc is 7.5 in diameter, the 1100 might be the same as the 1300, 7.145 In. 
      Go to  www.quartermasterusa.com  I talked to a rep when at the National Championship races in Sept, and you might be wanting a "Rally' type clutch, which has more grip than a street unit. 
      You can check the Midwest-Bayless site to see what we have. We used a clutch from our parts stock. Can't give you the horse power we have, but our last race, we had more than ever, over a wider RPM range than the prev 9 races.

      Turbo charged Yugo flies!! Clutch starts to give out around 5 - 6 grand, any advice? Also, not getting updates from the site, thus this is a test. Ty

      Anyone ever get clutche plates resurfaced like some of the drag cars do?
