I'm running a King Cobra on my T5 right now, but I only power shifted once between 3-4 and it smoked the clutch up. I can power shift between 1-2 and it just spins the tires. Running it through a T5 (A5) with 500 RWHP. Once it's done, going with a Spec 2+.

I had Ram HDT metallic, but it had a tendency to break a few parts here or there. But not often. A little heavy on the pedal but not to bad. I have also ran a Ram organic and it actually held up pretty good, and won a 1000$ No Box race late last year with an syncro'd Astro A-5 behind it. Have also ran the the Mcleod dual friction Street Extreme clutch and it does very well. Light on the pedal but holds. Don't have a whole lot of knowledge on that one but really fun to drive on the street with. Not sure how it would hold up with slicks in the long run . The car I drove with those combos were a NA 347 that was running high 10.60's and 70's. I actually picked up with the Ram organic. Due to a little starting line slippage. I kinda like that one. And it looked fine at the end of the year, after about 50 runs. The Mcleod or the Ram will be behind a 363 this year after I get the motor issues sorted out. I'm kinda expecting them to both hold up just fine with the knowledge I have with them, although limited knowledge with the Mcleod. Pretty much most of these premium clutches excel what we were running 25 years ago with big block cars.

McLeod RST and don't look back. Good pedal feel and plenty of holding power.
