i prefer to use a 50/50/50 mix of conventional, amsoil and royal purple. it improves my clutchess launches and keeps my muffler bearings quiet.

Often from 3rd up go clutchless... but not always, only on constant acceleration. Usually using clutch downshifting though

I only use the clutch when I have to stop, or start. After 1st gear I never use it, unless I get the whisky throttle, lol. Also, don't forget to adjust your clutch ever so often to ensure proper wear of the clutch plates.

yep.

as far as track is concerned. think of mow much time you lose when you; roll of gas, pull in clutch, shift, re-engage clutch, get back on gas. so much time lost.
