Any interest in Spec. We trust their clutches, good bite and power holding. Fair prices.

well i know spec will hold the power but drive-ability is a major concern. i have driven a C6 with a spec and it chattered like crazy and made any traffic situation a hassle. but that is my ONLY experience with a spec. and i think that clutch was rated for 1500hp or something ridiculous.

I like RAM because you can custom choose all your clutch parts based on you personal preferences. They definately appear to be ahead of the rest.

Hey what's up man. While my engine is out I'm going to go ahead and upgrade my clutch as well. The stock one isn't hurt but it won't last long. I'm probably going with the RXT.

From what I've read the RXT should do the trick. Light pedal, fairly quiet, and holds a lot of power. I should be making right around what you are when it's done, and about 150 more when the direct port kit goes on later and that's what I'm going with.

My spec supertwin st is dead quiet and drives really close to stock, with a grabby pedal. No chatter at all. Rated to 1595 ft/lbs, SFI rated, Billet construction, but its pricy. If you've got the cheddar for it, highly recommend! Little more aggressive then the ZR1 setup, but holds significantly more power.

The LS9R clutch is good too, but about $500-$600 more expensive.

I have had the LPE ZR1 clutch in my car @ 600+ RWHP for about 7,000 miles. Feels better than stock and has never chattered. I was worried at first due to it being as easy or easier than the stock clutch and much easier than the Textralia I had in the car. This clutch is one of the best mods we have done so far.

I am running the McLeod RXT clutch and put out well over 1000rwhp and it holds great is super quiet and better yet easier to drive than the stock clutch. I will never use anything else. Hands down best clutch I have ever used.

I'll throw out another option, Monster Level 5. It holds 825rwhp, yet won't leave you walking in circles. Feel free to give me a call with any questions you may have.

What are the specs of the RAM clutch you had, which individual components did you select?
I'm going with RAM and want to make sure I understand the pros / cons of picking one clutch combinatino over another.

I'm with ya. Sold/installed 13 of them so far this year and everybody loves them. ages 20-65.

If I had a M6 car it would definitely have a RXT in it.

We're pulling another ZR1 clutch out this week and going RXT in the car. Owner will probly let it go cheap.(out of a 09 Z06) Showed slight slip at 500/500 like most we've pulled.

Why is everybody buying clutches for these cars? LOL
Just kidding, believe me I know the answer.

@dmax86; Are you seriously considering the RXT?

The two I like the most are RAM RTrack 10.5, SPEC ST-Trim, also checked out the McLeod RXT which is quite interesting too but much more expensive and only holds 1000 hp. while RAM and SPEC are 1300+. RAM provides a lot of educational information on "clutches" in general which is a good baseline checklist to use when making an informed decision. I'm going to compare the 3 listed above and then I'll make my decision. Let me know how things go with the RXT.
