i have timed in with a stock assembly and a 3 disc minutes apart. neither were faster whatsoever.

a 3 disc just gets driven a lot different easier of the gas on the gas etc. it also doesnt pull up to rpm, say 4000 in corner when on gas will take to flagstand to get to 6000 with a stock *** , but a triple will be there pretty much instantly..

therefore a severely limited low comp motor would be better with a lighter *** , if it makes hp at the top end. but if you want to use any torque in that motor a stock clutch would be my recomendation.

you need a winch to load a 3 disc car and should have crew push you back etc all they can to make it last. also you need to measure your discs for wear fairly often as well as carry spares.

i wouldnt drive a stock clutch car on a trailer either myself.

When were triple disk clutches stock on any car manufactured in America?

why can't you load your car on the trailer with stock or disc clutch?

why would you want to.

a 130 dollar winch will do the job, and its a lot slower, safer and easier.

you usually have to slip the clutch to load, or go too fast,and that is a lot of wear for no reason..
