clutch for 650rwhp
 
My stock clutch was slipping a little on this last dyno run. I know everyone is going to say street slayer but i was hoping not to have to spend $1300. The zr1 seems to b a popular choice but is also in that price range. What about all the others ram, centerforce, spec, monster? I would like one that will work with the stock flywheel if thats possible

Spend the extra cash...ZR1 all the way! You wont regret it!

Mcleod RST clutch. Or even the RXT to leave room to grow. Not only did the clutch take a HUGE beating. But the customer service when calling them is great too.

you gotta pay to play.

Spec stage 3+ is a nice clutch, I was going to use it before I went twin disc.

Unreal 08-19-2013 11:32 AM

RXT. Zr1 clutch won't last long, especially if you race it.

I just installed a hendrix SS without the carbon pads. It was $1600 to my door and included new ARP bolts and a larger all metal throw out bearing. It had excellent instructions, and never chattered once. It's not the cheapest option, but it's a fantastic clutch.

What do are you looking for the clutch to do? Do you want stock feel or does it matter?

If you don't mind a more firm pedal feel, ACT twin is good for 800hp, but it is firm and can be a PITA to setup so it doesn't chatter and get a a consistent engagement.

If you want lighter than stock pedal pressure, McCloud RXT is bitch'n. You can reuse the factory flywheel, but I'd upgrade to the steel flywheel so it will perform the best. The factory flywheel has a larger center indention that the steel flywheel from McCloud doesn't have so it gets a better mount.

The ACT runs about $850 and the RXT can run up to $1200. I'm at 620rwhp with the ACT and a buddy with the same setup has the RXT. Both hold the power, but I like the RXT much better than my ACT.

Do not get the ZR1/LS9 clucth. It will easily become the worst mod you ever purchased if you do.

What he said. Don't go cheap on the clutch especially since you make power. Don't go ZR1. Mantic, Street Slayer, or McLeod. IMO. As much as it cost to swap its best to do it right

bct10985 08-19-2013 09:19 PM

Think the mantic sounds like the best deal

:word:

Mantic 9000. We have put more than 1000hp to it. Spend a little more and get a clutch that will take abuse if you choose to do so

DO NOT do a ZR1 mine lasted 3 passes down the strip, it is not designed for the weight of our car at that power. I then went with a Hendrix Street Slayer Twin Carbon and haven't looked back. Great clutch and many other are running the triple at 800+rwhp and its rebuildable.

Love my Street Slayer. Drives like stock and holds at the track.

FrankT 08-20-2013 01:29 PM

Great. I just got my ZR1 clutch from Lingenfelter to replace the Fidanza I have now. BTW, the Fidanza is a terrible clutch. It holds the power, but the car is next to impossible to drive in traffic. I had a McLeod twin in my 2002 Camaro, and had nothing but problems with it. It looks like they have the RST/RXT sorted out, but I will never buy another McLeod clutch. I'll just install the ZR1 clutch and hope for the best, I guess.

Detoxx03 08-20-2013 01:30 PM

Sell it while you can.

mrvenicess 08-20-2013 01:32 PM

If you go with the Street Slayer, make sure you go with the full carbon version if you are planning multiple passes at the track. I made the mistake of drag racing with the semi carbon version and cooked it in no time. Was looked after very well by the manufacturer, RPS, who swapped it for the full carbon version. After that, no problems, great clutch!

james347 08-20-2013 01:37 PM

Had the ZR1 clutch in for almost a year. Working flawlessly. *knock on wood*

This...Get a Mcloed RXT twin disc, one of the best and can handle a hell of a lot more than 650 HP and feels just like stock.

gnturboray 08-21-2013 01:09 AM

McLeod RXT in mine with the aluminum flywheel. Love it! The RXT is rated to 1000hp

blake-b 08-21-2013 01:28 AM

My LS9 clutch has worked flawlessly, including dyno runs of 825rwhp and 1026rwhp. Granted no track time, but spirited street driving.

ZuluKilla8 08-21-2013 10:43 AM

I have the Mantic on my with 658 to the wheels, over a year now and no problems

Unreal 08-21-2013 11:00 AM

I had a zr1 clutch. Never slipped but on the dyno after ~10 runs in the 900+ range it started to act funny and pedal softened up. I swapped to the mantic and no issues. Beat on it all day and no issues making even more power now.

Kronix 08-21-2013 11:42 AM

Mcloed or Mantic, you won't go wrong. Don't play cheap.
