Clutch & HP

Hi. Recently have upgraded things for more HP and have noticed the clutch slightly slipping during higher rpm's.
Currently have a HD 130 clutch n pressure plate.

What clutch setups is everyone running over 200hp?

Thanks

Howard:
Was good speaking with you over the weekend and today.
To clarify, Adam, Howard has an OM617 with the M-IP running with 7.5mm plungers and variable ALDA, so he is between 250 and 300 HP and the torque has to be well over 250 Ft Lbs (according to the builder of these custon IPs).

I am thinking a racing clutch will work, but we have no starting point for this 9.5" application.
Since the kit uses a custom flywheel, we could groove it like the heavy duty pressure plates.
I'll stop in at our local race shop and pick their brains later this week.
Clearly Howard's 300TDI HD clutch is slipping with this application.
We verified there is full engagement and hydraulics functioning adequately.

Suggestions anyone?

130 Valeo set up is as HD as I know. But I wonder what's used on 6x6 Perenties.

Now that is worth some research for Howard...

Thanks, everyone,
Looking at button/paddle style though concerns are thought about due to little slippage n next would be gear box issues.

Someone's gotta be running higher HP with a setup to share information about,
Thanks again

Will look into 6x6 set up ;--)

Wait a sec - new IP in the OM617 that is now slipping a HD clutch?!

That Merc motor must move (when and if the clutch does hold) the 110 down the road pretty good! 250HP must be nice.
