    Clutches aren't chassis related Ross, so moved to tubo engines

    if you could find a clutch that can take 400 bhp the f23 would destroy its self.you'll need a m32.

    Clutches are related to torque not bhp.

    The F23 Sachs paddle clutch is rated to 400lb/ft - not sure what torque your running !

    Stephan at Klasen is running 602 bhp, not sure what the torque is but it's impressive and all running through an F23 gearbox - not sure what clutch he is using either.

    Personally though - I prefer the 6 speed M32, I have much more confidence in it than I would running an F23. I am using a std vxr clutch at the moment as at the time there was no alternative for the M32, but it copes fine with the 360bhp/380lbsft.
