Grabs hard with low pedal effort
I have been drag racing my mustang for about 12 years, so I have been through a few transmisisons and many clutches. This Ram powergrip HD is my 6th clutch and my favorite so far. The other clutches either grabbed great at the dragstrip but were a pain to drive on the street, or were very streetable but slipped too much on the dragstrip at high RPMs. I have a vortech supercharger, which makes all its power up top, so I cannot afford to have a clutch that slips at high rpms. So far, this Ram HD has been the best of both worlds. Very easy to slip in traffic, light pedal effort, but grabs like a 6-puck on the dragstrip. First time out at the strip, I got my best 60ft time (1.48s) on my very first pass. I am noticing that after about 500 miles, the pedal effort has increased slightly. I just hope the clutch performance doesn't change. If it does, I will update my review. But for now, I am a happy camper. I almost feel guilty for having a clutch that grabs so hard with such little pedal effort.
