    I got a centerforce dual friction, got around 5000 miles on it, seems to work great on a bolt on car.

    If going with Spec. I would do the Stage 3.5. Forget the LS7. Some have had problems with the Spec series. Maybe look into reviews on Textrialla? I ahve the Spec and so far it works nicely.

    Mcleod, Textrailia, Ram, all have been proven to work well. I've read good things about the new Monster clutches also.

    If mine goes, which it probavbly will in the next few thousand miles, I will be looking into the Textrillia or Mcleod. I have not ever heard of the Monster series before. Are they new(er)?

    I've just read about them on LS1 Tech. Personally I wouldn't buy a clutch if I didn't know someone personally that used one and recomended it.

    Have a textrialla in my ta. Worked well but I did burn it up after 20-22000 miles. Clutch feels great, light on the foot. Clutch was down to the rivots and still grabbing good. It did tend to glaze and chatter if you walked it too much. it's in or out , you can't mesh it like a stock clutch. A few hard launches and it cleaned up the glazing though.
