Thanks i appreciate the offer, but i dont think that clutch would hold up for me.

those stupid weights they use will eventually move off center causing one hell of an inbalance. as well as when they do work. high rpm shifts are damn near impossible with the hydraulics as weak as they are in the LS1's. slave has an even harder time pushing it open. unless they have improved the design they are a waste/gimmick.

Good knowledge, thanks. I kinda always saw the weights as a bit of a gimmick, but figured there must be something to them if they are still around. I also agree on the weak hydraulics thats why one of my first MODS was the Tick MS

Centerforce is just a known POS for LS cars. They are not great for Fords but people use them.

I like the Mcleod RXT. Be carefull though with the tick master. They are known to leak within time. The Mcleod clutch is made for stock hydrolics and works perfect with them.

I also vote for the McLeod or a Monster stg3. Not sure if Monster is still good but I loved mine and was making 500 and 570tq. Held up to 6000rpm clutch dumps with no problem

Monster has gone down the tubes. They were good a few years ago but something changed.

Really Don? Too bad, because I really liked mine. Is the friction material different? Are they falling apart? Guess if I ever go back to a M6 then maybe a RXT is what I will try.

I love my ram VDS sintered iron, pressure plate is rebuildable as well. static pressure is also adjustable.
