    what is the best clutch for the money for our model cars. but first let me tell you my prob. ive got a clutch masters stg. 1 in there now but the guys who put in the clutch cheated me out of my t/o bearing and put in the stock one and its gone bad and it sezed and now i have to put in a new one so wich is the best for the money im lookin to spend about 300-400 $ on the clutch itself so any ideas would be nice thanks

    from what I have seen guys using these days, it appears that the SPEC clutch kits are VERY popular :) the Stage 3 kit goes for like 375 I think :-\

    the stage 3 does 695ft pounds of tq and goes for 324 bucks at American Muscle ( AKA mustang tuning )
     
  5. no reason to spend alot of money on a car if the car is mostly stock...

    the stock clutch is just fine... go to napa and get a clutch...

    unless you're starting to make some good power don't bother

    I have a King Cobra and it's a great clutch. The pedel effort is basically nothing. It'll hold up to 400 lbs. I think, but don't quote me. If I had to put a new clutch in, I'd probably go with a centerforce. I plan on doing PI cams and intake as well as a new exhaust around March, so I want a stronger clutch. I heard that Spec clutches are of good quality, but I have no experiance with them. Let us know what you decide.
