Whats the best clutch for 1000+ HP?

I am going to convert my manual M6 over to an automatic but until then I need a clutch that will hold up to 1000+hp to the rear wheels. I have read that the LS9 everyone is happy with but I think it is only rated to 700hp and I have the Fidanza 7.6 installed now but not really happy with it as it squeals and chatters like crazy.

RPS triple if you intend to beat on it and have it live. I have also been running the Ram dual disk puck unit for a while. It will hold the power at the track but it chatters, stiff and on/off. It has a very defined friction point, though, so it is great to launch with lots of feel and feedback.

The Fidanza holds up but its halfway embarassing to drive in town and leave a stop light and it squeal everytime. It didnt do it right off as I broke it in for awhile but now its wore in some once it gets some heat it is just annoying. I may just keep it until I do the swap anyways.

I just went through a fidanza at the track with only 640 rwhp!!!

Pictures of toasted fidanza on Cincy Speed Facebook page.
I ordered an ls9 clutch just now.

Clutch good for 900 ft.lb.torque

I've been running a Mcleod RXT twin disc. cost is some what high at $1130.00. I decided to go with a steel flywheel as the car is some what heavy at 3860 lbs. I've had good luck and I'm pushing 582 rwhp. Just thought I'd though this out.

Andrew I saw those pics but I just thought it was the stock clutch. I really dont think there is a clutch out there that is going to handle my power level as Im pretty sure the TR6060 isnt capable. I am just going to kill the Fidanza I have it and get a custom built
4l80e and do the swap so I can actually use the power that the new build is going to offer.

I can get you into one of the new Monster Twin disk's that we did the design work on.
Will hold way more then 1000hp, doesnt chatter and is as smooth as a babies behind

Give me a call Jason.

Thanks
Chris
