    We are putting together a Pro-Tree index car.
    Not going to use a powerglide. 10" pedal clutch is going in the car.
    I have experience with a Glide style clutch so tuning a pedal clutch is just a new learning curve.
    I will layout the combination and take recommendations but I'm also wanting a program to be able to input data and have it recommend weights, base pressure and disk surface area.
    I'm assuming Davenport sells something like this?
    Any on-line calculators that anybody knows of?
    Thanks: Matt

    Davenport used to have a clutch program, I don’t know if he still offers it. Best I can remember it asked for several parameters and kicked you back some plate load data. I feel it was the most accurate of the ones I’ve seen. I don’t know how much that will help ya. I helped a guy for awhile that had a dyno sheet for his clutch. He’d always pull it out and go if I take out x amount of spring pressure and add x amount of counter weight it should give me xyz plate load. Way over complicated and it never seemed to work as intended and we would of been better off without it.
