Only mid to high 11s. How can you look at yourself in the mirror? What tires are you running at the track?

I'm running M/T's. My short times are not the issue (1.7). 3rd gear is. The RAM clutch does not powershift for crap. So about at the 1/8th mark, I'm spending 1-3 seconds trying to jam the shifter in 3rd while basicly coasting. On one run I was pushing so hard on the shifter that it slipped out of my hands and I hit my helmet on the steering wheel.

It's back at the shop getting the clutch "addressed".

Perhaps your engine is torquing (moving / twisting_) and your shifter is not properly aligned to complete the move.

I suggest different engine mounts and the Powerhouse rear brace with them there torque arms that connect to the belohousing area..

OR maybe you have the clutch with TOO many pucks on it... (SAme part number but WRONG)

just a thought, and a way for you to spend more money!!!

I have just about every PowerHouse/CHE item they offer including tq limiters and brace. The engine/trany does not move. The clutch is the issue, more specificly the RAM pressure plate, and there are many others having powershifting issues with after market clutches. Mike is going to try and use the RAM disk with the stock pressure plate to resolve it.
