Default 1st drag times.

I just got my first drag times on fri Apr.27th at St Thomas Dragway. I ran 13.9 @ 102 with 2.26 60 ft. On street tires. My clutch is half pooped now. I'm looking into a Spec or ACT so I can run slicks. 115k I guess it's about time my stock clutch went. I'm not sure how the set comes though. They don't seem to come with flywheel like the SRT modular set does.

It's usually the first thing to go too when you start modding the car in general. The Getrag is strong but that stock clutch is your weak point.

I really didn't think it would slip that bad. I think it was my first burnout that did it. They didn't have a hose wetting down the box.

When I took the PT, I went around the wet box cause I was on Kuhmo Ecsta street tires (they were only 215's IIRC).

17 psi on stock turbo. The exhaust and WGA and flash is all I have. After clutch with slicks I plan to run 13.30's with the same set-up. Just need to figure out which one to get. I don't get how to order. I think I'll have to buy a new flywheel or resurface mine to save some cost. Might not be as good of a friction with the new disk material though. I need a clutch and trans tech guys opinion.

Congrats! That's a great 1/4 mile showing with such a poor 60'! It must have lots and lots of power.
IDK what clutch the turbo PT uses-
The Neon uses a STOCK (yes, 18 years old) Neon cover, a '95 style Aluminum flywheel and a copper disc from clutchnet on 22x8x13 for a 1.8"
My bro uses the same w/ a lightened cast iron '95 flywheel on radial Cheaters at 2.1" or 2.0".
It breaks axles, of course.

There's lots, lots more in mine, so I'd have little doubt you'll get your 13.3!!!!!

Oh, and Neon people had TONS of problems with Spec- They went to SRT-4 (turned down for the old 2.4) or stock PT N/A and the '02 2.7 now.

The OEM clutches were literally better than the big dollar aftermarkets.
