Update: It held the power fine once engaged, I smoked it at the first stoplight though, my b. But hey, I went from blowing it at 1 mile to 2 miles. 100% improvement is good progress.
I really just need to learn how to ride the fucker. It is pretty beastly though.
I'll take the clutch apart again today and see what my weak point was this time. I think I can plane the pads down and make it a 7 piece clutch.
I am also running super thin ATF. I think this could also be an issue as a bit of slip from gear oil or something heavier would make the rig a little more forgiving when moving from a stop.
