    Clutch for my LT1

    I have a 95 lt1 with maybe 315-325 rwhp. I put a Spec Stage 3 clutch in it about 15 months ago. This past weekend I was doing a burn out for the ls1 calender. When I got done with the burn out I couldn't get the car in gear. I am sure its the clutch. I have hated the spec 3 since I got it because you can't slip it. I have heard that the Spec 3+ is slippable and a better clutch.

    Any advise on what to do would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to put a $650 clutch in it every year. Which clutch will hold?

    It is driven only on the weekends and does see the track. It is mostly driven very aggresively.

    I went Mcleod ST and never looked back. After break-in, it is really an easy clutch to have on the street.

    Sometimes after heating up the clutch so much it will actually expand enough to make it hard to get in gear!
    I had the Centerforce dual friction in my 97SS and you could slip it all you wanted, and it would still grip!

    If you slip any clutch enough, it will chatter!

    i agree with SS ,after several 5 grand dumps on slicks the only thing i had a issue with was the st axles that bent. great clutch. heyy SS you got any pics of your washer setup between the pressure plate, floater and flywheel. i took some pics of min when i tore it down but now i can't find them lol.
