Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the McLeod RXT Twin Disc 1,000-Horsepower Clutch, available for all 2011 to 2014 Mustang GTs and Boss 302s. In this video, I'll be going over the functionality, application, and the feel of the McLeod 1,000-Horsepower Clutch when applying it to your MT-82. On top of that, I'll be touching on the materials and construction. And then I'll finish it off with the installation, letting you know it gets a three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, simply because this one will test the toolbox and require some mechanical expertise to get the job done. The McLeod RXT Twin Disc 1,000-Horsepower Clutch kit will be for any '11 to '14 GT or Boss 302 owner who might be pushing some serious power to the wheels and is looking for a clutch kit that can handle the power of each launch, each shift. And even make the pedal easier to handle because a twin disc can move some of that resistance. Now, if you're pushing somewhere in the 800-horsepower range and looking to take it even a step farther with some more power, the 1,000-horsepower option is going to be a perfect fit for you. However, if you're not really pushing anywhere near that, then spending about $1,000 on this clutch kit might not be entirely necessary. If you're looking to stay in the 800-horsepower range and even below, somewhere still pushing in decent numbers, then you might wanna check out the RST option from McLeod, which is going to be an 800-horsepower option, which can save you a little bit of dough. Right off the bat, when you're looking for a clutch replacement for your late S197, you'll notice that one of the biggest differences between the plethora of options on the market is the fact that there are single disc clutch kits and then, of course, twin disc clutch kits, which are both made for very different applications. The RXT option, as you can see, is a twin disc clutch kit. And because of that, it is made to handle extreme horsepower Mustangs, pushing somewhere between 500 and even closer to the 1,000-horsepower mark, which, of course, as you would know, requires one hell of a clutch to handle the power at each launch, especially if you're spending time at the track. There are a number of reasons why a twin disc clutch is going to better than a single disc option for high-horsepower applications. One of those reasons is going to be the twin disc just dissipates heat so much better than a single. Now, if you're running a strict daily driver, your clutch isn't getting nearly as hot as, say, a race car clutch up to about 500 horsepower. Now, a single disc is going to be great for that application, which is why I'm gonna tell you here it's really not necessary to pick up the twin disc if you don't have to. Now, don't get me wrong. A twin disc would work great for a daily driver, even if you're not pushing upwards of 1,000 horsepower, but honestly, you're just spending way more money than you need to and you're not reaping the benefits of a 1,000-horsepower clutch. Now, again, if you're running up to about 500-horsepower single disc, great for that application. Anywhere up to about 800, check out the RST. Anything around in that range or higher, the 1,000-horsepower RXT is perfect. Now, if you're running on the drag strip, obviously, you're generating a lot more heat, which is where the twin disc actually starts to reap the benefits because it can handle the power being thrown at it. In addition to heat dissipation, a twin disc clutch is actually going to give you a better clamping force as well as an easier pedal feel, which, let's be honest, is always great news. Now, a better clamping force leads to a more positive engagement when you're dumping the clutch or if you're just letting it slip a little at a stop light. If you're running a daily driver, you'll probably find yourself revving it a little higher, simply because it is waiting for a crap

Street Or Strip. The McLeod RXT Twin Disc Clutch is perfect for aggressive street driving and occasional drag strip use. Able to hold up to 1000hp the RXT Twin Disc Clutch kit is ideal for extreme horsepower Mustangs that need a good reliable street clutch.

Twin Ceramic Discs. Featuring ceramic faced twin sprung hub friction discs; this RXT Clutch will provide slightly aggressive engagement with a soft pedal effort and excellent release characteristics, making this a very driver friendly clutch suitable for most street performance enthusiasts.

Application. This McLeod RXT 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.

Specifications:
  • Fits: 2011-2014 GT and BOSS with a MT-82 transmission
  • Disc Dimensions: 11" X 23T X 1"
  • Horse Power Rating: Up to 1000
  • Includes: Pressure plate, two clutch disc, floater plate, adapter ring, and pilot tool

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. Stainless steel clutch lines help prevent gear lockout and provide superior clutch pedal feel, even under the toughest conditions.

Do I need to be pushing over 1000whp to use this? I have a stock 5.0 with an mt82 that I plan boosting soon... but for the mean time can I run this no problems on bolt on power?

Jesus

  • It would depend on where you are in terms of horsepower. If you are not close to the 1000HP mark the McLeod RXT Twin Disc 1000HP Clutch will be very stiff, and tough to engage.

I'm looking to buy this clutch and the lightened steel flywheel. My question is does this clutch come with the bearing or is it recommended to buy one? Thanks

Lando

  • Unfortunately, this Kit does not come with a Throwout Bearing or Pilot Bearing. It is recommended to get these components since you are changing the clutch. This will ensure that all parts are brand new and will function properly together.

Is a new flywheel needed for the McLeod Clutch? Is there a required need to upgrade the flywheel with this clutch? 2012 Mustang GT

RudyFromChi

  • Its always better to use a new flyheel when installing a new clutch. Its said to also use the same company as the clutch for the flywheel for mating purposes as well. ( I chose a new OEM flywheel with my ram clutch however with no issues). If it comes down to it, at least re-surface your current flywheel, but you may be taking your tranny apart sooner then later to swap another one.

    Long story short I was getting my engine replaced by ford while everything was all opened up tech called to inform me I also needed a new clutch began to search the web and decided to go with the RXT and Lightened steel flywheel and man that thing grips! There is a slight vibration at take off give it a little gas and it wont be noticeable, spoke to a tech at Mcleod and they said the vibration is totally normal due to it being twin disc. Launched at 5500 RPM sprayed nitrous out the hole and it did not upset me one bit.

    Great clutch

    I put the McLeod RXT and McLeod Lightend Steel Flywheel in my 2013 Boss 302 w/640rwhp. Once I made in through the 500 city mile break in period, the clutch holds way better than the stock clutch that was falling apart. The install, once the transmission is out of he way, was a breeze. The shifts in the MT-82 with MGW shifter are solid and feels better than before. I highly recommend the McLeod RXT for anyone wanting to push over 800hp at the motor, it's worth the $$. Took an extended weekend total on jack stands with help. I strongly suggest a lift at minimum if you insist on DIY, but suggest having a shop do the install if you've never dropped the transmission before.

    If your boosted, you need this clutch.

    Recently replaced my Ram Dual Disc with the McLeod RXT. Couldn't be happier, definitely can tell when this clutch grabs. Solid engagement, extremely quite compared to the Ram model. Go ahead and spend the extra money for this clutch.

    high holding power

    This clutch holds up to the hype. If your tired of not being able to shift at high RPMs or if you need more holding power, this is the clutch for you. The pedal feel is much easier than stock. pedal effort literally feels like a small 4 cyl car. when the clutch grabs, it grabs fast, but thats to be expected. You will have to rev the car up and slip the clutch more to get a smooth engagement so your not jolted around in the seat. Again, this clutch is made to hold large amounts of power, so this is par for the course and completely normal. You can use this clutch on a stock car, but its not necessary, there are cheaper options if this is the case.

    Rxt clutch

    I have 300 miles on it, still in the break in phase. So far the clutch is great, pedal is better than stock and its not an off an on switch when you take off. Only slight chatter around 1500-1800 rpms, hoping it goes away after the 500 mile break in period. Only down side is the price....

    Great clutch

    I bought the rxt and McLeod steel flywheel and all I have to say is wow. Pros: Lighter than stock petal effort, very smooth engagement, Feels great for everyday driving, and of course... holds a buttload of power Cons: unsprung hubs, harsh noise only when accelerating at 1500 rpm which is completely avoidable by the way you drive it. The McLeod rxt is an amazing clutch and although it's a little on the pricy side, it's worth every dollar! I would buy this clutch again. If you want great streetability buy this clutch!

    Great clutch.

    The clutch is great for the street. No harsh engagement and a very soft pedal. Recommend removing the assist spring for a better pedal feel.

    Must have for cars with boost

    I purchased this clutch and I noticed an immediate differance in performance. I believe the stock clutch was wasting my hp. The 500 mile break-in is very important. I also had a hard time operating the clutch without increasing the RPMs and letting the clutch out. It constantly changes as you go thru the break-in period. The good: It operates similiar to stock clutch as far as pedal pressure required. I great confidence that the clutch will hold strong. Works exactly as intended. The bad: I have a harsh drivetrain noise from 1000-2000 RPM. It is noticable inside and outside the car. It is due to the different clutch material compared to stock. Everytime you make a high performance modification you will lose some kind of comfort.
