So got a slipper clutch valve installed. This is from clutch tamer, it is the hydraulic version. I went against the grain of the instructions on this one and didn’t install a 2nd Stage bypass valve. What that means is the slipper system will be active throughout all gear changes. With that said I modified the master cylinder with the lightest return spring as possible, relying on the pressure plate to push the pedal back. Hopefully this will not allow a hydraulic pump up of the clutch system.

The reasoning for this is so it will maintain rpm through the shift points better. Looking over my data logs the rpm was all over the place between shifts. Mount location is just below the steering column. Out of the away and from heat sources. Hopefully this works out well for me, I don’t expect to have to “slip” the clutch much given the nature of the build.

Brake upgrades. Changed out my old hydro-boost for another one. This one has a larger reservoir canister. After blowing the motor and loosing all brake power I figured this will help. As well the master cylinder upgrade, I wanted more breaking power so hopefully this helps. This is a 34mm (1.338) bore master cylinder. Should do the trick. As well wired in the low brake fluid switch to the “brake” warning light in the car, worked out good. Completed new stainless lines down to the distribution block. Master cylinder is from a Cadillac Deville with 8lug J55 brakes. More or less limos.
