Recommend me a clutch!

Last night I floored it in second and went to put it in third and it wouldn't go in. I pulled over and the car doesn't move, it just shudders at the top of the clutch range. So I'm assuming my clutch went out, but correct me if I'm wrong. I put down 480 whp so I need something performance oriented but nothing too crazy. I don't have $1500 to drop either so I want something cost effective. I appreciate any input, thanks!

EDIT:Thanks for all of the recommendations, everyone! I'm probably gonna go with the Mantic once I get set up with a shop. But I also have a feeling that it may not even be my clutch... It broke while I was in gear, there was no burning smell, it never slipped before, and it never grabbed high. Do you guys think it broke anyway or maybe it's the output shaft or something? What would cost more to fix?

Mantic ER2 Single Clutch Disc Kit...

Clutch engagement is near stock pedal feel , but it holds 770+ ft/lbs. We have used them on a lot of N/A & forced inductions applications with great holding capacity. Gone are the days of that stiff pedal feel, and chatter from the clutch. The clutch kit comes in at a great price (Can't post here, but you can PM me or check our website), includes the steel billet flywheel, ER2 pressure plate/cover, and clutch disc. Complete kit ready to be installed!

I predict I'm going to need something like this in the semi-near future. Any idea what a fair labor price would be for a reputable shop to install?

Please give the Street Slayer a look,it will cost a little more at first but it will save you a ton in the long run...1st No single will last as long as a twin so its futher inbetween labor bills...2nd it is rebuildable for less than some singles that you have to throw away . If you do a search you will find proven performance,great driving manners and a GREAT value .If we can help you out give us a call,,,,(We are working on a special deal for C5 members that we will anounce in a few days)

I've gone through alot of clutches in my Vette, some very expensive. As of now I use the Mcleod RXT in both vehicle's and has been the best clutch in my opinion. Been in my Vette for 2 years so far- longest of any clutch.

I've got the Street Slayer twin carbon and I love it. Excellent street manors and holds a ton of torque.

$2500, was that an installed price?

I am going with a Street Slayer Twin just because it is rebuildable and has a great reputation.

I guess now I will be waiting on the Camaro5 deal from Hendrix Engineering. Hope it comes out soon, my clutch will not last much longer.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with running single clutch plate kits, especially since the OP is looking for something more cost effective. He does not want to spend $1500, so that is where I have my suggestion of something that is half of that with the holding power well exceeding his power range now.

Great to hear it,we will have the info up shortly...We have several clutches much cheaper than the one your asking about,his car needed a BEAST of a clutch lol......The great thing about our twin is we use LESS clamp load than the stock clutch ,we all know we dont have great hydrolics in the camaro so we didnt want to compound the issues with a HEAVY clamp load of one of our singles.With our Twins we use a HUGE amount of surface area to hold the car,not clamp load,thats why it drives nice and we dont have the hydrolic issues that you see reported on this site. Look forward to helping you out...

I see what you are saying Matt but the problem with power is that you almost never stay at what you got. However if the OP is planning on staying at his current power level the ER2 could be a good option for him.

yes $2495 for just the clutch setup also I forgot it's the Billet and comes with the slave cylinder. i'm not asking $2500 and will make someone a really good deal.

I'll stand behind this clutch well over 600rwhp... Used it many times for SC applications in the 700+ rwhp range. Of course if its going to be a drag car or use sticky tires on launching, I do prefer the twin since it does slip a little easier and does have more holding power of course. However, for a street car, the single disc has been proven to hold a ton of power.

Well we all love a really good deal. My clutch is on its last leg, I am surprised it has lasted this long. 10 launches at 600+ RWHP has taken its toll.

Any good guesstimates on what an install (labor) price should be for a clutch?

$500 or so... Depends, usually if people are installing and purchasing parts with us we work a better deal. But that is about the range.

I put in a Hendrix Engineering Street Slayer twin carbon this spring and I love it. Very little break in, great street manners. It's a little more "grabby" than the other 2 clutches I had in the car, but nothing annoying, just have to hold the sticking point a fraction of a second longer.

Last weekend was the 1st of many trips to the drag strip I plan to abuse this clutch with, and it performed GREAT. (My last clutch, Centerforce Dual Friction single disk with steel billet fly wheel fried after 150 passes at the strip, and I could barely limp the car home with a slipping clutch.) Stock clutch had the "pedal sticking to the floor on hard launch" problem. I never had this with the Centerforce, which I had put in to address this issue, and have not had it with 7 trips down the 1/4mi so far with the HE.

This 2010 SS M6 is the first manual I've owned in like... ever. And the sad truth is I'm never going to be the best at things like getting going on a hill at a light behind cars, etc; I tend to let it slip too much and I'm afraid I'm burning out the clutch prematurely.
When they give out in a car like this is "just" a clutch kit usually all you need, possibly like the one recommended in an earlier post (Mantic ER2 Single Clutch Disc Kit)?
