What clutch are you using?

Looking to get in on the black Friday cyber Monday action and put a new clutch and flywheel in my car while I send the trans out for face plating.

Looking at
McLeod
Spec
Centerforce

Along with an Aluminum fly wheel


90 LX Notch 5.0 5spd, bolt on drag car with some giggle gas.
11.71 @ 116mph
86 Gt T-top 5.0 5spd, That one day project.

well it looks like the Center force is out as I cant find one with a 26 spline clutch disc anywhere.

What are yall's thoughts on a dual disc?

If my car was faster with a stick, it would have a stick....alas, it would be slower. So I kicked it to the curb. It can find a new John there.

I kept reading recommendations for the Spec 2+ for my 428W, so I got one. It's great so far, good pedal pressure and smooth engagement. No racing yet.

I have a brand new spec stage 2 clutch if your interested. It’s a 10 spline. I bought it thinking my trans was a 10 spline but it turned out mine was a 26. I have the same clutch now but 26 spline behind my 393 Windsor. It’s a great daily clutch and can handle it on the strip.

I like the ram powergrip hd I’ve got in my car. Grabs great and is great in traffic as well. Pedal feel is also good.

Tony Sarvis (Astro Performance) recommended I go with a Ram Power Grip. I've had it in my car for over 4 years and has held up well to numerous drag launches and 454/478 SAE. The pedal feel is positive, but not so much it can't be driven on the street comfortably. So far I have been very happy with this choice.

I hate the Centerforce in my '93 Cobra as I've had issues with clutch vibration.
