Clutch recommendation

I am looking for clutch recommendations for my 86' hatchback. It has z-spec T-5, 4.10 gears, 275/50 M&H DR. Probably a little over 400hp. First time to the track it went 12.54 at 113.5 mph with a 1.94 60ft, it bogged some and I shifted to 2nd a bit early. It would not shift after that pass, but I did get a 1.72 60ft. I adjusted my clutch some before the last pass, and the clutch disk came apart when I shifted to 3rd. It was an 8 year old FMS heavy duty clutch.

Centerforce dual friction works well for me. Car makes 505rwhp.


Stock block 306, V1 T-trim, AFM B-451 cam, TFS Twisted Wedge, Holley Systemax, A1000, Snow Meth, TKO 600, Team Z, Strange, MM, Lakewood and Moser helps me go forward fast.

I've been very happy with my RAM Powergrip. I make 454/478 SAE in a 3300 lb car (with driver) and have had the clutch in for three years. The pedal weight is still manageable in stop and go traffic and I regularly cut 1.62-1.58 60's (leaving ~4000 RPM) on 28x11.50 QTP's.

Put a slick on the car. It will sixty better and be easier on the trans.

I know that it would be quicker with a slick, but it's a street car. I like to run it the way I drive it on the street.
