Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of McLeod RST Twin Disc Clutch, available in sizes for your '01 to 2014 Mustang GT and Boss, in addition to your '03 to '04 Cobra and Mach 1. In the world of aftermarket clutches there is obviously a ton to choose from and I think you'll find McLeod to be one of the more premium options in the world of clutches. Now they do offer anything from your bone-stock daily driver or light bolt-on car, all the way down to your thousand-horsepower strip monster. Now what we're looking at today is one of the big boys, the RST which is a twin disc clutch, and believe it or not, it not even the burliest clutch they do offer. They also offer an RXT, which is capable of holding upwards of a thousand wheel-horsepower. So with all that said the RST is definitely going to be a good option for those of you guys out there who are looking to make or already making big power through either forced induction or nitrous for your street-strip car or your dedicated drag car. Not so much for the cars out there with light bolt-ons or even stock. This thing would definitely be overkill. Now a twin disc clutch, for the most part, is a thing of beauty, because it's going to offer unparalleled holding capabilities with a pedal feel or effort that's not going to kill your leg in the process. Now the only downside to a twin disc clutch is usually the price, as they are not often cheap. The one thing I do like that McLeod has done to help keep some of the costs down here, at least with the pre-MT82 RST, is allow it to be used with any stock or aftermarket flywheel as long as the bolt patterns match up. Now both the Ram and Exedy twin discs here on AM, they do include flywheels, which is only going to increase the price. Now for the MT82 crowd, both the '11 and '14 GT and Boss owners out there, McLeod strongly recommends you use their RST with the McLeod flywheel for the best fitment, of course, here. Well that is going to increase the price, but as always, you have to pay to play. Getting into some of the specifics here with the RST we'll notice dual organic material friction plates here separated by the floater plate, the signature red McLeod pressure plate, and last but not least, the adapter ring. Now it's not uncommon to experience a little bit of noise at idle with a twin disc clutch here, and that will be the case with the RST. At least some of our customers have pointed that out, so be sure to check out those reviews if you haven't done so already. Installing a new clutch can be a little tricky if you've never done it before and especially if you don't have access to a lift, so for that reason alone I'm going call this one three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. I might knock that back to a two out of three wrenches if you do have access to a lift because obviously it's going to make life a whole lot easier. Figure the trans does have to get dropped obviously for this one, so we'll call it four hours or less from start to finish. And also another biggie here, make sure you follow McLeod's braking procedure for the clutch to get the most life and performance out of the clutch itself. So if you're looking for a proven clutch for high horsepower applications that's going to maintain great pedal feel and drive-ability, you have to consider the RST from McLeod, and you can find yours right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Street Or Strip. The McLeod RST Twin Disc Clutch is perfect for aggressive street driving and occasional drag strip use. Able to hold up to 800hp the RST Twin Disc Clutch kit is ideal for extreme horsepower Mustangs that need a good reliable street clutch.

Twin Organic Discs. Featuring organic faced twin sprung hub friction discs; this RST Clutch will provide smooth engagement with a soft pedal effort and excellent release characteristics, making this a very driver friendly clutch suitable for all street performance enthusiasts.

Application. This McLeod RST Twin Disc Clutch Kit is designed for use on the 2011-2014 GT and Boss 302 Mustangs equipped with a MT-82 manual 23-spline transmission.

Technical Note. The McLeod Twin Disc Clutch should be combined with a matching McLeod Flywheel for best performance and proper installation.

It's recommended that you add an SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line during your new clutch install. Stock plastic clutch lines can fail during aggressive driving.

Hi, There is a comment: "Also when driving at low rpm's 1200-1800 there is a loud rattle from the clutch. I'm told this is a normal condition for a twin disc clutch." Is this true? Does the clutch normally rattle at lower rpms? Thanks

  • I had a RST in my o7 Shelby GT , and it was outstanding , I do not recall any noise ,,, if so it was not noticeable to me ,,,,,,,,,I tracked the car at Willow Springs and Laguna Seca and the clutch was excellent

Does this clutch work with stock resurfaced flywheel?

  • Call McLeod and talk to Billy. I used a rxt and was told to use the McLeod flywheel with my build and am very happy. He will be able to give you the exact answers to any questions you might have.

    True story

    Well, after reading all the glowing reviews for this clutch I decided to go for it. let me preface this by saying that I've done this professionally for 40 years , with that said here's my review of this clutch. The install was straightforward with no issues, those came immediately after the install. This clutch is vague on the take up and does not like to be slipped either, chattering was by far the most serious issue though. After following the break in procedure things were no better, so much so that I'd had enough and took this shoddy product back out. So after spending a little over 1000 bucks at the American muscle show on aug. 2016 I was at a crossroads. Thankfully I have a very understanding wife. My car is a 2014 GT making 661 rwhp I do not race the car so it had to have stock type characteristics. The problem with this clutch is the non sprung hubs in the discs I did not think that was going to as big a problem as it turned out to be. my solution to the problem turned out to be a mantic clutch ( sorry AM) you should look into selling these. I'm not happy that I had to spend a total of 2500 on clutches but hey, live and learn. I'll be putting it Mcloed on ebay for whatever I can get for it .

    Smooth like a factory clutch but bites better

    Smooth engagement, bites no matter what kind of abuse you give it. I rev to 7900 and it always grabs. Flywheel helped with response as well

    Very Happy

    I am very pleased with this clutch! I bought a s/c kit for my car and needed something to hold the increase in power. This clutch has done just that. Very little noise from the twin disk set-up, lighter than stock pedal pressure, and easily drivable in town. Mated this up with their lightened steel flywheel. Works great! Was looking into other brands and saw several good reviews on this one from other sites and on other brands of cars as well. The removal and install of the trans was the longest process. But well worth my time!

    WHERE HAD YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!

    Took me a while to pull the trigger on this clutch due to the amount of reviews with supposeably issues, noise and what not due to its twin disc nature on youtube. When I finally did purchase it, I rented a lift and took me approx. 8 hours with little help from shop hand here and there while pulling down the transmission and flywheel to finish the install. First impressions out the box: Beautiful, wish I didn't have to cover it. Its ok though, I purchased a Mcloud decal to show loud and proud love for such a good manufactured product. Furthermore pulling my car off the lift doing a test drive taught my clutch was broken, this thing is soft compared to Spec stage 2. And when it hooks you feel it grip, 7k-8k shifts will whiplash you and put you deep in your seat while you hold on for life and keep on rowing through the gears effortlessly. It shifts so smooth, engagement is a bit tricky but once you find the right spot your golden and will crack a smile everytime you power shift or drive spirited. I have 0 noise, no clacking while in neutral so anybody with clutch issues that has had this product installed might want to go over the install one more time. Also might want to throw in the high RPM disc while you have the flywheel off, its a cheap mod but I feel like it helps the car rev smoother on its way to the very top of the RPMs. My wallet won't pay for another clutch that is not mcloud.

    Excellent Clutch

    Installed this in a GT with some bolt on mods and tune, usually putting a 800 HP clutch in a car that doesn't make that much power would be a bad decision, but with the twin disc setup you get strong holding power with less pedal resistance. The engage point ended up being a bit different, further off the floor, but McLeod delivers a strong product that's not too punishing to drive daily.

    American Muscle gets 5 stars, McLeod, not so much.

    First off, I dislike reviews that have nothing to do with the product itself, but I felt compelled to leave these comments due to the situation McLeod put me in. I spent close to $1200 for clutch and flywheel, and the thing shows up with a missing part. The bottom disk wasn't in the box! American Muscle shipped out a new clutch disk OVERNIGHT. Thank you! McLeod on the other hand, well, they sent one out with 3 day shipping. I think that's poor customer service. My car was up on the lift, but luckily I didn't have the trans out yet. I promise to do a real review after I break it in and beat on the new setup.

    The next step

    Anybody with full bolt-ons and larger tires will tell you that the stock clutch can no longer handle the power. My 2012 GT had just under 40k miles on the odometer and was already starting to slip. I decided to swap out the clutch, flywheel (both RST), throw out bearing and clutch line before starting a cross country road trip. I liked it as soon as the clutch was broken in, but I fell in love with it somewhere between cruising along in Kansas (only received a warning for speeding) and climbing the Rockies and have loved it ever since. My only complaint would be excess chatter in lower RPMs. With that said, THIS is the upgrade that will keep my Mustang running strong all the way to redline. I will be revisiting RST for future clutches and am beyond impressed with American Muscle's continuing quality customer support.

    Great clutch but not perfect

    I recently installed the Mcleod RST clutch and for the most part it operates as advertised. It has a very light pedal effort and slips extremely smooth with no chattering. This clutch is great in stop and go traffic while still able to handle rediculous power. However Mcleod is very misleading when they say "can be used with stock flywheel". The clutch discs in this clutch are smaller diameter than the stock clutch so the disc hangs over the center of the flywheel by about 1/4". I did not feel comfortable with the friction material not making full contact with the flywheel, so I also installed the steel Mcleod flywheel which has a smaller inner diameter to make full contact with the disc. Also when driving at low rpm's 1200-1800 there is a loud rattle from the clutch. I'm told this is a normal condition for a twin disc clutch. If you are very sensitive to noises then this is not the clutch for you. However from a performance standpoint, this clutch is amazing. If you can ignore the occasional noise you will love this clutch.

    Whiplash grip

    This clutch is very stout, and built with a trusted name in clutch innovation and engineering. Too bad I'm affraid to put tires that grip on the car. I will be puchasing a driveshaft sooner than later. My whipple 2.9 is taunting me every time I drive the car. As for a factory replacment you will not be disappointed by this product, just don't complain about costs...you gotta pay to play

    Night and day compared to the stock clutch. Response is immediate and at high RPMs catches very easy now. Even on downshift its a breeze now. Recommend this for anyone looking to install force induction below HP threshold.
