Well car runs good, not sure if anyone else had spec 3 related issues. Been a good 10 years in the car... passing from 55 in 4th felt something, then for the true test tried 3rd at 50... car fell right on its face. When on dyno had no knock... so I'm guessing clutch possibly?

go figure right when I'm out of funds ugh and don't have access to a garage like I used to...

any suggestions on clutch? cars making 300/360 @ wheels... thought stage 3 would've been good? and I haven't really put many miles on it since the motor swap cause of issues here and there and fine tuning.

I'll trade clutch for M90 charger with TB and DUB system

Im thinking so... if I use 3rd from 30 goes fine... tried from 50 fail... hit 4th again then seems like it caught.

I'm at a loss.... if I go from stop... drag strip last year was fine, then 2nd time same thing so now throttle fixed thinking clutch is on way out.

I've hard of people having issues with stage 3 spec. Just don't know if 4 would work? Sucks I just want it right for one year

Well you did say it's been in there for 10 years?

Might be time for a new one. I just had a 3+ put in and I love it so far.

The first sign of a clutch going out is slippage in high gears.

I've always been used to a clutch slipping in first.... grabs in first and second... maybe slipping from heat etc?
