    Well, funny you would mention this. At a recent Div. Event, I watched the crew remove the transmission, loosen the clutch can, and then put a 'curtin' up to block the view of the clutch. I thought it was odd.

    I wonder if that theory could be used on an A/Fuel car?

    Well I heard it in Feb. BUT- good question on this being a clutch mngmt tool for A/FD. All the top fuel tuners I know state that the only real differance other than a tenth between AA/FD and A/FD is clutch management- They feel the blower is mainly an easier way to tune- but load and clutch are the main factors to making fuel cars quick and fast whether it has a blower or not!

    Bucky has had his clutch covered for awhile, and it is not covering up one of these clutches......

    Mr Brooks,
    Will the cover work with a Hays Steel Hat? How about a IHRA set-up (Small Blower)
    Thanks
    Bob
