I have the same setup with 8 weights and run an orange spring with my Bronco. Out of the hole it's insane and top end is perfect. I run mine in the sand alot though but it see's al types of terrain.

Also i am running the cover and need to keep it on , the clutch is way to loud for my wife and kids not to run the cover , i also have the whole car Dyno matted for sound and have a cover directly behind the seat for sound and heat making the car very quite . I heard about running a Boat blower on the belt cover as well . Chris said not to worry about it since i am not running in the sand , but i would rather be safe then sorry , since this is my wife's car .

New to the forum. Im I to assume a 686 or bigger motor will "lunch" the wet clutches.? I only run the sand with 7 paddle haulers in a light two seater and use synthetic oil and so far (low hours) not had any problem. What is the early failure symptoms. Thanks

Don't know but when i had my wet clutch setup from Chris at Benchmark i had no problems , i just wanted more launch response from the car and the dry clutch was the best solution .

How do you run the CVT cover on the Bronco Clutch? Mine dosn't fit. Mt bronco clutch is barely louder than stock. Maybe a little more noticable at idle but that's it.

I run in the sand and run a fan on the clutch to cool it down. I also have 26" tires and a 4 seater. No belt breakage so far....

The launch factor is determined by your carb setup as well...Call Chris he setup the 686 so he will know the carb setup and the clutch setup better than anyone...what carb are you running?

So, how are you running the cover? It dosn't fit over the bell housing on a Bronco clutch.
