It shakes the whole car backing out from the driveway, LOL. Its definitely a lot of clutch. Not for the faint of heart or left leg.

I want one, but damn its pricey. Most likely worth it, but I don't have the cash.

It is pricey but you get quite a bit for those$$$$ . Flywheel , throwout bearing , clutch pressure plate , install tool . The entire assembly is balanced and matched , too.

I ran the RAM 6130 disc, and 402 pressure plate in my SS, along with a resurfaced flywheel, and a Mcleod Billet Adj. Master Cyl. with the drill mods, and an updated GM slave. Although that set-up was very agressive, it still lasted over 70K miles, and was holding just as strong when I sold it, at the power it was making, as it was when I first installed it, with nothing more than bolt-ons. Needless to say, my left calf muscle looks pretty damn good!! :D

The 10 bolt has already been hurt at the track...3.73s in there now. All the 9 inch stuff is here, I just have to set the gears up and then install the assembly.

5 launches in one day on Nittos and the 10 bolt started howling like mad...my first time to the track with the M6 too.

which is better the Mcleod twin disk or a spec 4?
I think that Specs are junk. I was at a certain high-profile LS1 speed shop a couple weeks ago that will remain unnamed...

I found it interesting that the sales manager for the shop was on the phone with spec about a customer's car when I was there. It was certainly NOT complimentary.

McLeod is one of the best clutches available if you can afford it, along with the Textralia and Exedy pieces. :cool:

I have the Textrailia, and its amazing. The street manners are great, and it seems to handle the power I throw at it.

after a few 6000 rpm clutch dumps it wont chatter nearly as much.... think of clutches like your friends ... they all make a bunch of noise till you slap em around a bit.... :lol:

















note ...i am just playing i dont slap all my friends around... just the ones i really like :p

McLeod owns all. Spec is crap. :D

My ST doesn't chatter at all. It did for maybe 200 miles, and that was it. Buttery smooth and grips like a mofo. My ONLY complaints are the tiny slippage zone and the heavy pedal. But hey, that's part of the trade off.
