Default Drag racers -Low buck "clutch management".

I've seen this done before, but not
as simply and inexpensively.

Back in the old days,(1960's) we just adjusted the tires pressure to vary the bite, for a certain amount of tire slipage for the same thing. Pop

Berg anti-shocker was essentially the same thing, just a smaller cylinder on the trans itself. But... I looked on their site and it's not available anymore.

This would be cool if you could mount it inside the tunnel somehow.

That's how I did mine. 3000# Kennedy pressure plate and a Berg 3 puck disc. Ran it for many years with low 1.40 to high 1.30 60 ft times. Broke 3rd gear once and one ring gear on a stock trans. I ran 8.5 M/T with 14 LBS air and 30mm torsion bars & adjustable spring plates on a 1550# pan car.

Tire pressure would be adjusted for the track surface on each lane, temp, etc. Ran at the national record in my class (D/MP) at the time. Old Indy car an engine builder helped me set the chassis up and a lot of advice. Never did break a gear or the rear end, but overhauled the transmission and rear end about 8-10 times per season. I also drove a A/A for a friend.
Remember the RamChargers team. and Don Nickolson in the Mercury Comet ? I would run against them for Street Eliminator back at that time. Pop
