    Going to be putting on a full akra, modding the air box, and getting a nash flash. Should I add the second spring, and the retainer right away?

    Yes definitely. The added HP will make the clutch slip sooner than later if you don't.

    What do you mean by both? I had thought you just throw in a second spring. There’s more to it than that?

    There is an aftermarket spring retainer that replaces the stock one. It is taller and prevents the added spring from getting out of alignment.

    I wouldn't say you can't run without it but it is highly recommended.

    It's available from Rick Rash, he's a member here, and you can find him on Facebook. You can also purchase one from Gurued Gear as well.....in fact he has everything you would need in a kit.

    Awesome, thanks. I just picked up a Gen 2 with a lot of unknowns in terms of mods at the moment. I’ll be getting his reflash and will get his clutch kit too if it hasn’t been done already.
