    Question dual friction clutches

    ok guys I've got a new question how do you know if you've got a dual friction clutch in your car? I test drove modded ss once and now that I think of it the clutch felt totally different than it does in mine. it felt like it had 2 different resistances while pushing it down and it engaged better than mine.

    Whats up with that?

    What do you guys prefer?

    If you mean a dual friction centerforce clutch:
    -It will have light pedal pressure at idle
    -As RPM's increase the pressure will go up but not by much
    -The weights get forced out by centrifical force applying more pressure

    I researched today and found out there are twin clutch systems too. To me this sounds the best. Its way more expensive but I think it'd be worth it to get one.

    right now its def more than 330rwhp because that's what I was pulling with just a lid. Now I've added lt headers and an ory(3in) and some msd wires.

    People often say around 350 is what I'm at.

    stay with the single set up, unless you are putting down some highly unstreetable numbers you don't need it, plus the potential clutch pressure would make it a bear to drive on the street.

    I liked the centerforce clutch, I'l prolly end up going back to one when its that time again
