    LS7 ftw, feels just like stock but can handle much more abuse. I really like mine, I've beat on it pretty good and it still feels like new!

    Centerforce DFX. Not the 11.5" version, the 12" version. I am making 480 rwhp, have made multiple strip runs, and I beat on it daily. I also have alot of miles on it. IT has not gone up in smoke ever and it drives exactly like stock. A new or different flywheel is not required, although you must have a machine shop zero balance it and machine it since you will be using a larger clutch.

    Don't pay attention to the bad rap you hear about these clutches, as they all were refering to the 11.5" version.

    I don't see how anyone can comment on which clutch you should get considering you have not listed any vital information as to what your plans are for your car....

    How much power do you plan on having?

    Is this a street car only? Will you be drag racing it often?

    LS7 handles my power fine (+450rwhp), no chatter and good engagement. Great street/strip clutch.

    Just curious, does the LS7 hold high RPM clutch dumps at 450-500rwhp? By high, I mean 5500-6000.

    I don't have the tires nor the rear end to do that anyways. He stated for DD purposes...not too many street launches at 5k.

    Once you make your car start to hook, your going to start launching the car higher. Yes stuff breaks but its a car. Metal, plastic and fun. Nothing more.

    You can have 500+ HP and have it be a daily driver.

    DD does NOT mean keeping it stock, nor does it mean not taking it to the track and having fun with it...

    If weather permitted and I had time, I would drive mine daily.

    I have a 9" rear and I am someone who will make 5-6K clutch dumps when I take it to the track...because when I go to the track, like anyone else out there for that matter, I want to get the best possible time I can out of my car.

    Feathering the clutch out at 2500 RPM and spinning the tires getting a shitty 60' time will not allow me to do that. Will it?

    ^^^^^ true

    Granted I'm only boltons, I've made well over a 100 passes on my setup and have never had any issues, should be fine unless you plan on making big power

    I will keep making them...my car is built for it I haven't put 14K into it thus far to baby it

    I think a LS7 will serve you very well and you'll be very pleased with it. I've heard nothing but good reviews about it.

    The LS7 clutch what, $400-$450 with the flywheel?

    The Centerforce is the same price and holds more power and will last longer.

    This is a given.
