Never thought of a carbon clutch, this is a daily driver though so I want to still be able to leave stop lights without lighting up the tires. Though that being said I have absolutely no experience with tilton anything or carbon clutches so I could be talking out of my butt on this one.

I thought long and hard about dry sump but I really don't want to spend the time doing the maintenance on them. They are so much more work then just a regular oiling system. They are hugely expensive upfront and routine maintenance is just a pain. If I find that my current oiling setup is lacking I will switch over to dry sump but in this case tried and true is where I want to put my money for now. I may do dry sump for my 818 build as that is a car I am more willing to play around with and down time on that will be less painful to deal with emotionally lol.
