My clutch is slipping when I punch the gas in the upper gears (4th or 5th). The rmps shoot up, but the car moves no where. I'm trying to decide between McLeod or Centerforce. I heard a few people had problems with the Centerforce DF. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Depending on yer hp level I would reccomned the Spec 2 plus Hybrid with steel flywheel. I have the above and it has great pedal effort and can handle ober 600 RWTQ.

I got Zoom stage 2. No problems, great clutch. I was initially going centerforce but a mustang around here had his come apart on him so my shop said they never had problems with Zoom so with them I went.

Zoom has been around for a long time, I have been trying to figure out what to get when mine goes. Heard a lot of negative things about SPEC, so I thought Centerforce was the answer when I read a lot of good things. Then, lately, I have been hearing the same negative comments about Centerforce. Not so sure what now....maybe just another Ford.

I have a McLeod dual friction in my 87 and it holds the power nice. I never tryed a centerforce but I here good things about them, the same with spec. I had a king cobra clutch in my 88 it was mostly stock and I thought that clutch was great for a mild setup on the street, I dont know if they make it in 11inch though.

I wouldn't recommend Spec to anyone. I have a Spec Stage 1 with their Spec Billett Steel Flywheel and it chatters like a mofo. It is getting a little better after it's been in the car for the last 4 months, but not great. If you plan on getting a nice clutch for street driving, Spec is NOT the answer.

MRT sells an 11" King Cobra clutch for $199. That's the way I'll go when I need one, but my car is mostly stock. Not sure if it would hold the real high hp very well. If you buy a Ford stock clutch, be sure you don't get a reman. When I was having tranny problems, the dealership replaced my original clutch with a Ford reman clutch. If I had known that, I would have bought something else on my own and had them use it instead. The Ford reman clutch is not very strong. If I get real aggressive with it, it will smell like it's burning up. Only go with new!

What kind of HP are you looking for the clutch to handle?

Anyone have experience with the King Cobra clutch? Sound like a good deal!

I had one in my 88lx and I loved it nice and smooth on the street. I didnt have much done to the car. I dont know the horsepower rating you can call ford racing and ask them they should know. I think they are closed thanksgiving week so call this week.
