Holy s*&% what clutch do you use. Mine was $175 from Auto Zone and it has been in there for 4 years, DR launches 4-5 slicks launches.

If you saw the pile of time slips I have and go with me on a weekend you might think differently, but mine is not a DD though. I see the Hp mods you have so your clutch don't go through quite so much either. (no offence)

it's the clutch thats up from the dual friction centerforce. it's called the LMC and i beat the **** out of it... i killed a cobra clutch in 3000 miles and i drive the LMC harder than i ever drove that cobra... if u wanna know just how hard/fast i shift and how much abuse the clutch gets then i can post a video, but i'm possative i beat on it more often than u do (no offence) and i'm sure my idea of beating on it is way above yours (once again no offence) pricing clutch disc 200, matching pressure plate 300, steeda adjustable cable kit 150 (i think) plus the price of 1 stretched stock cable and one broken stock cable (don't remember price for replacing with 2 stock cables) my my clutch set up including cable kit was 650 before the new flywheel, rear main seal etc......
