Re: Clutch recommendation please BBC, 600 hp
Awesome stuff! Been pounded at work, just now coming up for air. Atlanta traffic: Holy Smokes X 1000. This is the worst place to travel PERIOD in ANY car! Actually Atlanta just got voted #4 in the United States as most aggressive drivers. Luckily, I live one hour North of the chaos. I thought Tampa and Miami was bad.......geez! Anyway, I will probably be stuck between lights here and there; cruises, car shows, Sunday stroll etc. I do need something fairly easy on the ol' leg because my wife already said it's half her car (it actually is because we're married and we're married) and she'll be driving sometimes. I can't wait for that damn train wreck and body shop bill! My flywheel is billet steel, SFI rated and weighs 30 lbs. I'm really leaning towards a hydraulic clutch unit.
As far as price point and having something that fits the bill; I'm kinda leaning towards the Ram Powergrip HD, iron/organic unit. My second pick would be the Mcleod Street Extreme - Ceramic unit. The Ram is $60.00 more ( 3 cases of beer ). The tech at Summit told me the Mcleod would be more "street friendly" and possibly a little easier on the leg. So, I decided to go with what my wife WOULDN'T like to drive, the Ram clutch. Just kidding, kinda, but the tech told me the Ram would bite a little harder, be more aggressive, could take a little more abuse and handle my power a little better. Their both single disc units. The dual disc is just too much for my wallet and pay scale.
I'm gonna do a little more homework and also try to find a good used Lakewood blow proof bell housing for $200-$250. THANKS!
