in my 3.0 ran 15.6 in the 1/4 at 89 mph. i didn't launch at all. i took off slow like i was in town and then hammered down. i also granny shifted all the gears. i was afraid of tearing apart another rear end. like i did 3 other times before. the truck was on 9 psi and a street tune.

Do you need a centerforce style clutch with an RPM assisted pressure plate?

Ref: Post# 1, "radguy" mentioned clutch issue, centerforce clutch uses centrifical weights to add clamping force at higher RPM's. Their website usually has excellent narrative on the theory. Good read.

oh that's cool. i did not know this. i have a Center Force Dual Friction clutch in my truck. so far so good. it's been in there about 4+ yrs. i have had 4 clutches in that truck already. the stock one lasted the longest and two MAVAC gold series pieces of junk and now this one.

I had a Centerforce Dual Friction with the centrifical weights in my old 3.0. I liked it but it really had no need powerwise for that clutch.
