We've done a couple of them, they have a real light pedal feel, but do have some chatter...had one fail after about 500 miles, but other than that, they've worked great...IMO opinion with your power I'd opt for the SPEC 3+ or RAM powergrip HD :thumbsup:

Maybe Big Daddy will chime in and tell you what he did to his Spec clutch.

I have heard that a steel flywheel will help with the chatter some and make it feel less jerky.

I might have some experience with it... that's what's in my car last I checked anyways :p

When it first came out it was the next best thing since sliced bread... then people bought them and a bunch discovered they really didn't like it. It does chatter but you can get around that if you adjust your driving style.

As far as how does it hold... there was a weak link in my car last year when I took it to the strip and it sure as hell wasn't the clutch :D

Viper Spec T56 FTW :thumbsup:

This is the clutch I long for, but don't know if I'll ever get.

The price is step as its a twin disc which requires a new flywheel, but all the people that I've seen that have one say its worth it. Apparently it has a very light petal effort, but is very strong. I have been told that if you get this clutch you will probably never have to replace it.
