Looking for 800+ HP clutch with stock feel 2006 Mustang GT

I missed the article about best clutch. I am looking for a clutch that will handle 600+ WHP and have stock pedal feel. At the moment, the car will be making 500+ whp, but the power will go up soon so I want to be prepared with driveline..

I am told that there is a Ram clutch that fits the bill, handles 700+ HP and has virtually stock feel. looked at their site and there are a few that fit that description, trying to figure out which one is right.. Any other recommendations?

I have a Spec III clutch in there at the moment and the pedal is way too stiff for a comfortable daily driver (not that this is a comfy daily driver) So we'll use the Spec III which I hate for quick reference.. Spec III, too stiff for a daily driver..

Daily driver, stock feel, and 700+hp just don't mix well together.

You would have loved the Hayes race clutches we use to run on the street years ago. Your left leg would go numb if you got stuck in traffic....LOL

Unless you are running “slicks” and launching that sucker at the track day after day you don’t need more clutch than you have now. It is very unlikely that you will ever make 800rwhp and even more unlikely that you will get it to the track and have the car prepped to the extent that you will be doing 6K RPM clutch drops. Anything short of a full blown drag radial with 16psi and a long burnout will spin before the clutch does.

I have a Stage III +, I’ve been stuck in traffic a lot of times and I don’t think it is that bad. I have driven plenty of S197’s that had clutches with similar HP ratings and they all had a heavier pedal than mine. And a few weeks ago I pushed the clutch in on the Spec twin disc setup. Wow! That sucker was heavy. Not to mention they are about $1100.:kooky:

Yeah I dont know about spec twin disc setup but McCloud Twin Disk is definitly more foot friendly.

I would have thought that the Spec twin disc would have been lighter because it doesn't need as much clamping force due to a LOT more "friction area" than a single disc. Maybe there was something wrong with it. It was brutal!

I would like to have a twin disc...........and about a million other things. Damn cool car stuff!:hihi:

What do you want with 800+ hp? Presumably you want a low 10s or 9s ET car in which case you have the wrong driveline. If not, you will have an extremely overpowered and slowed street car. For cars that have upward of 600-700 rear wheel and dragrace, automatics rule, like a built 4r70w.
