    Heavy duty T56 clutch for L98 - hotness?

    Hey fellas,

    Did a quick search and nothing leaped out but as per thread title.

    Cliffs, it will be going in to a street car, jammed between an L98 and a T56 and fronting a ~500rwhp turbo motor.

    Knee isn't the most amazing as it is so preferably something that won't explode nor hasten arrival of osteoarthritis.. Also, possibly dreaming but closer to $1k the better.

    Cheers fellas.

    I had a Textralia, but that was almost 10yrs ago. I couldnt fault it and I gave it a good belting at the strip, track and hills.

    Isnt rorge on here the clutch goto man, maybe PM him

      It's a bit of an overkill, but a Macleod twin plate is very good value. Will hold double that power easy, only a bit heavier pedal than stock, smooth engagement etc.

      edit - just did a quick search, its about USD$750 from summit racing.

        Stock stuff from more powerful engines is supposed to be pretty good for pedal feel.

        I imagine something like this would hold 500 - https://www.holmart.com.au/new-genui...pressure-plate
        For something that will definitely hold the power, but its more than 1k - http://www.speedinc.com/shop-by-manu...lutch-kit.html

          Don't forget that if it's from a VE it has a different slave cylinder arrangement. (Some clutch kits come with this for some reason)

            Spec and Textralia Z grip in my case - never again. Turned a street car with good manners into an absolute pig.

                This is what I did yet to confirm whether it`s poo or not.

                  Yeh, after reading exwrex's experience, a bit hesitant on them...

                  paul, assuming that's the L98/T56 in your Rx7 (awesome car btw), as per lukevl, any issues re. fitment? As mine is a VE. Trying to make it as drop in as possible to minimise labour + nickel and dime fuckarounds and get it back on the road with minimal squeal.

                  Yeh, as above, trying to keep it as drop in as possible. Not suuuuuure... how long the Ls7 clutch will go before smokey pile of skid related mess. Did think about it. And assuming I went that way, the site indicates drop straight in +/- flywheel?

                  Vunderbar, assuming he doesn't arrive to set shit straight, might fire him a pm.

                      LS7 clutch being able to hold will probably depend on how sticky your tyres are and what you are going to do with it. Slicks at the drag strip, no, skids on powercruise on chasers, yes.

                        I had an NPC twin plate in my turbo ute and it was the best clutch i have ever had. Would highly recommend.

                        Whatever you do, do not use an xtreme / australian clutch services. Worst product ever.

                          I had a Mal Wood clutch in mine. Worked well. Mantic now do a twin plate that isn't too dear and is excellent by all accounts I've heard. Lighter pedal than a single plate too.
                          Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

                            Hmmm... Considering better tyres, better diff and being able to hook up somewhat are next on the list, might cough up a bit more.

                            Cheers and, heh, good to know, it's the one brand my shop told me to steer clear of.

                              This one - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MANTIC-90...-/131408012932 ? Bit more than I'd like to spend though looks the goods...

                              This looks pretty reasonable though - https://malwoodauto.com.au/product/a...acehdnv8opt3p/ - pedal feel and wear was good in yours Jim?
