Best aftermarket clutch???????

So whats the best clutch? I just toasted a findenza twin disk.
the clutch lasted a few thousand miles, and 6 or so passes on the track. Car puts down 640rwhp. I need a clutch that will handle the load put on it. Street and strip a must.

Right now I am looking at a ZR1 setup, but need information on how it is holding up. It is rated for 700hp but is that at the crank?

Let's here what you have, and how it is holding up. Also state you RWHP numbers!!!

GET THE ZR1 Clutch!!!!! Ive been where you are with 2 aftermarket clutches. The ZR1 clutch is by far the best setup I have used. The pedal is as light as stock and ZERO chatter.

600rwhp and I run drag radials for everyday tires.

The clutch is good for a lot more then 700hp. I know Redline Motorsports uses it on some 800hp camaros and lingenfelter runs it on their 10 sec camaro.

I dont sell them, so Im not trying to make a sell. Im just VERY happy with it.

I am happy with mine (LPE ZR1). Like said above - no chatter and clutch pedal feel is close to stock.

I'm getting an RPS BC2. It's a pissload of money though(look around and you can get them for ~$2k) but I haven't heard a bad thing about them. Rated at 900ftlbs I believe.
I'm at 600/600.

I know Monster has a new twin getting ready to release to the market.
They also have the Level 4, 5 or 6 that will handle that power.
Give them a call and tell them Chris @ Gforce sent ya

Thanks

We've had great results with Monster clutches. If your wanting something that drives like stock then the ZR1 clutch is hard to beat. That being said it has some extra weight in it compared to the aftermarket single disc setups. Give us a call & we can get you good pricing on several different possibilities!

I'm at 600/600.
The RPS BC2 is easily the best twin disk out there in terms of abuse tolerance, weight, and performance (aside from maybe a Tilton, but realistically, most people don't want a clutch that costs the same as a crate engine). You can't beat the way carbon material works, and their pressure plate design ensures that the discs are fully disengaged on a shift. ZR1 clutches tend to hang at very high RPM (I'm talking 7000+). The price keeps the BC2 out of the hands of a lot of people, though. After my car was slipping with a stock clutch, I ran an Exedy twin disc which failed after 5000 miles. I decided I wanted something that I could put in and never have to take back out. The clutch is capable of 1.4 60' times and will still actually bite the shifts amazingly hard. The carbon heats up on the launch, allowing that good 60' while it's slipping, and once it's hot... it just grabs even harder. The other advantage is that carbon can never warp, so you won't end up with chatter.

*Note* Chatter is not the same thing as that rattling noise at idle. Chatter is the shuddering feeling when taking off from a dead stop. The BC2 definitely makes noise at idle, but any light clutch will transmit noise like that. The ZR1 clutch is heavy enough to dampen a lot of that.

If you can afford it, the BC2 is rock solid. If you can't, the ZR1 clutch is the next on the list.

Heard good things about Centreforce.
However, not sure about all this twin disc stuff. My installer advised against it for the following reasons:

1. It's very difficult to press, and your left leg will end up larger than your right on a daily driver vehicle.

2. Designed for racing, and will get chewed up quickly on daily driver.

Anywone, have a daily driver and using twin disc clutch for more than a few hundred kilometres?

MCcleod RXT is what I am going with after trying out the Fidanza 7.6. The Mcleod RXT has proven to be a great clutch for extreme horsepower and still be a good daily driver.

Well I have the ZR1 twin disc and works great. Easy as stock to press clutch down. I had a single disc 4 puck in my last 4cylinder and that was harder to press then this.
