Before the engine and transmission come together, a Ram clutch and aluminum flywheel goes in between to mate the power with the Strange Engineering 9-inch rear outlined in last month's article (Real Fast, p. 135). Ram has also maintained a long-standing relationship with Tim over the last few years.

Ram's VDS clutch is designed to maintain that pressure.
