I have struggled with this sled for two years and Big John gave me this set-up and my sled stopped the over rev.

White spring at 19 lbs. (b-3)
160-290 or 160-270 primary
straight 50 helix
Dayco 2 belt
pin weight 18 0r 19
clicker 3
27 tooth gear

This is by far the best set-up I have tried so far.

4.3heel,11.4 mid and tip is either 7 or 8. the clutches are hotter when comparing them to another 8oo i was with. you really couldn't hold your hand on them for more then 2 or 3 seconds. when i would stop and let it cool ,it seemed like it pulled allot harder?

If you are running the wrong helix, you could create too much heat. I noticed runing a 27 tooth gear that I have allot more belt temp. Clutch alignment makes a difference when it comes to temp also. Alignment also will effect the shift out. Mine was over-reving unitl I got the alignment spot on. Keep things relative though, we need some #s for the temp, it will have some degree of heat no matter what.
