Blew out the new clutch already...JUNK

I am very disappointed in the LS9X Clutch for 2010-2012 Camaro that I got from Jannetty. This was supossed to the real deal and hold up. I am making 650 at the tires and I have to say when I got this clutch it felt spongey to me but I put about 800 miles on it and went to the track and it felt OK on the first pass but I put 2 more on it and it is done, not much pedal and vibrates and shakes the car when taking off.
The thing went going into 3rd chirped the tires and then pretty much free reved like I missed a gear.

I am very disappointed that I spent $1600 and this thing lasted 3 passes, my stock clutch was holding fine and I put this in for insurance....kinda pissed. But I was told by some other vendors that this clutch wasn't going to last at my power range...but that was after I already installed it. I am going to go now and figure out how to explain to the wife that I need another clutch after just buying one.

I just decided on the Hendrix Street Slayer Twin Carbon, was going to go with ZR1 clutch until I heard from several sources it was great for the street, wouldn't hold up to abuse at the track.

Street slayer at this power level is more pricey than the ZR1, though.

I doubt it. Maybe Ted will do something for me, I have spent about 15K with him so hopefully he will help me out.

I don't mean to ruffle any feathers when I say this:

You want to play? Then you have to pay. Racing is an expensive hobby. Every time you run down that track you risk breaking expensive sh!t.

Lol, that saying applies to most situations but not this one. Even if that clutch wouldn't hold up to long term abuse it should have lasted more than 3 passes.

The StreetSlayer twin starts less than the quoted price of the ops stock zr1 and will do the job,and is rebuildable

The clutch really IMO has felt like mush since it was installed and it also started sticking to the floor when ran hard which my stock clutch only did to me once or twice.

Overstating the obvious don't you think???

OP, here is an excerpt from some e-mails between my builder and I...

I got to drive my car a few miles before I came back out to work, and he is putting some miles on the new trans and diff now...

I Love This Clutch... and like you, I agree, they are pricey but cheaper than replacing one every three or four passes.., but my old 1400 ft/lb rated twin disc lasted less than 7000 miles... with only a few passes down the quarter...

This is relative the new Street Slayer (Triple) we put in my car... Thomas at Hendrix did a nice hook up for me...

I talked to Thomas this morning and I talked to Ted also. Ted said to get some pics of it and he will try to get it taken care of but he highly doubted it would. So it sounds like I am gonna be out everything and get a different set-up.

That sux...

I had to pull and send my twin disc back at one point, and it helped a little but not much nor for long... My problem wasn't holding, it was disengaging...

Sorry to hear it didn't work for you... believe me, I understand... I have a spare dual fuel pump now since we ordered a newer bigger set-up... my builder and I have been very careful in the planning and purchasing for my car, but stuff still happens...

I think you already know I'm on turbo's number 5 and 6...

Just do the Hendrix clutch the first time and save time, money and a whole LOT of aggravation. PD or Turbo cars positively MUST have a clutch of this quality and any centri car that makes big power should too.
