Sweet, I may just head out to the strip tonight and
force you to get a larger gun:)  I've had good results
with the CQ PP and disk, but I'm right on the edge of
what it can take with a decent launch and an empty car
+ me at 3250lbs.  It will not take a hard launce if
the car's loaded to 3600 or so, it will just spin
away.... Javad's using a Stage 3 from
http://www.specclutch.com/specMain.html in his new
monster, I'll probably just get a stage 3 disk and use
the stock PP when the lightwieght FW goes in.
