Got the Audi splined clutch disc. They are cerametalic. Unsprung though but I won't be launching or anything so tranny should still be able to hold up.

be gentle with the break in on the clutch, but youll have fun. Did you look at a fidanza or anything else similar?

I did and others too. But the reason I went with this type is it's re-buildable, which im really big on. Though I wouldn't mind have a sprung disc they wont fit stacked and that was another reason, more surface.

AWWWHHH yes !!! and I just remembered the biggest reason... price and parts. there is surplus from circuit racing on ebay.


im looking at fidanaz now... their prices don't seem bad though.

Default long times ahead..

so after reading of the weakness of the 01E with a naturally aspirated v8 hauling a small body(http://12v.org/urs/charlie_smith/01E/v8info/index.htm) there's no point in attempting the d2 body, even with it being aluminum.
so my plan is to sacrifice a spare 01e front diff section get it ready for a mold at a local casting plant. Add clay where needed, draft, reference points, etc.... I'll have it poured in steel, yeah I know heavy but I figure once coupled with mid section and rear diff section it'll weight about the same as the auto in there now.
The monarch will be able to swing the casting.
ill face the front and rear to length, use the reference points on the mold to set the input shaft and with a template get the front bell housing bolt pattern. once I have those holes ill use a jig. Set the real 01e on the jig which goes into it at a couple of bell housing bolt holes AND the input shaft, center it on the lathe for the remaining rear holes and internal shafts(individually lllloooonnng and slow),remove the original from the jig, keeping jig in the chuck and put the casting on the jig. Then drill, true it by boring then ream it. Good thing is with the front diff section of the 01e all the bearing surfaces have an insert, so I might not even need to ream. finally once I have the front and back done ill make a large 90 degree angle jig and do same with side holes.
and then run it... easier typed than done

Most measurements from average of 3 or more readings. This is a draft for a custom flywheel with Tilton 7" button clutch between a 01E and a 4.2 v8 40v engine with the 8 bolt pattern.
