9.35 3rd meeting on gen3 10r/ what lockup clutch?

Had my 3rd meeting at the weekend n set 3 new PB's 9.35 @160 with 40 shot gas, [email protected] 149 with a 60ft of 1.550 was very pleased with those however not pleased with my 60ft as it not consistent 1.9's to 1.650 mostly- I'm told by those in the know a lockup clutch would help this??!!
Any advice from you guys on where to get one/ what to get would be most welcome:
Ps must ship to UK

I would recommend more seat time. Sure you can tune a multi-stage lockup to help your 60ft times, but that won't teach your clutch hand how to roll. It is more like putting a band-aid over the problem. Talk to Hays Machine Works if you are still interested in one though, not sure if they ship across the pond but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Best 1/4mi ET: 8.98 @ 147 (stock motor, no turbo/nitrous)

All you need is the set time and the numbers will drop. What kind of clutch setup are you using and how much do way

for seat time. With time, you'll keep getting better and more consistent.

Thatll be ok. A lot of us run OEM or DragPak. Personally, I put in slightly stiffer springs. Thats a personal preference though.
