Incomplete posting on my part.
You would have to actually speak to someone at Quarter Master. The rep
I talked to more or less said that. However, no guarantee of success.
Because they should make small car clutches, I'd expect them to be able
to do something. They might want/need specs from you.

yeah the 1500 clutch disk is bigger, requires the matching pressure
plate and flywheel with the ring gear swapped over from a 1100/1300.
So you figure you just have so much torque when it hits high rpm that
it starts slipping? Thats something. Would be helpful to know how
much torque it takes to make your clutch slip. I don't know of a spec
for it. I know that springs can weaken and of course, there is wear.
One time i didn't have a impact wrench for removing a crank pulley
nut. chocked the wheels and put it in high gear. Didn't get the nut
off, but it let me know that the clutch would slip at a little over 100
ft pounds of torque. Seems crazy that performance clutch sellers will
just say "this stage 2 will have a little more hold than stock" and
"stage 3 will have a lot more" without quantifying it with some sort of
measurement. I couldn't find any yugo/fiat clutches on art's link.
I've been eyeing this one for my turbo cabrio project:
can find an affordable 1500 flywheel, I would go with stage 2
performance clutch for that instead.

avoid a reman clutch for high performance applications.
> Our company X1/9 race carÂ uses a aftermarket, new, stock type clutch
assy. Â 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.Â 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 7.5Â in diameter, the 1100 might be the same as the 1300, 7.145 In.Â

"Rally' type clutch, which has more grip than a street unit.Â

clutch from our parts stock. Can't giveÂ youÂ the horse power we have,
but our last race, we had more than ever, over a wider RPM range than
the prev 9 races.
