Well tonight I was bored commin home, went for a nice rip at night around the back roads. Stopped to do a brakestand for the hell of it, did a pretty good one (its a bit harder after installing the mach1 pedals) anyways later on down the road I went for another tryed to get some good distance marks on it, tires were spinning at first then I noticed that they didnt seem to be spinning much more. Took off...then I start to smell that good old smell (clutch)...

So how long do u think I have till I need a new one, guess I shouldnt do any burnouts...assuming there really bad on a clutch vs just ripping thru the gears?

BUT the trippy part is, about 3 years ago I had a 91 LX 5.0, I did a brakestand in the same spot one night, smelled the same thing, then a few months later my clutch went, but that stang deff slipped quite a bit more. But how weird is that, first time both clutches smoked on both stangs were @ the exact same spot. lol.

I ran the king in my 95GT and it always worked well, and then changed over to Center force.

no not in my Cobra I have now, I guess its stock :dunno: Its holding fine now and has not given me any trouble in the 6 months I've had it so..............

I had it in my 95 and my 91 GT's they were a little harder than stock pedal feel but nothing that would cause problems speed / or power shifting, the holding power was phenomenal MUCH better than the King Cobra I did have in my 95, but for double the price it should be. ::)

I should also mention that was the last clutch that was in my 95 until I sold in a year or so later, and in my 91 it lasted about a year and that was with regular once a month trips to the strip for at least 10 passes so it held up quite well.

i've had a king in my car for about 4-5 years no real problems. Matt if you had a CF dual friction in the fox, then i would get that for the 95.

Matt, Stay away from that spot!..lol

I run a centerforce clutch, the pedal doesnt seem stiff to me? but I may just be used to it.
