I have a 1968 camaro, 427 cu with a muncie 4 speed. I had a centerforce dual friction clutch kit installed a year and a half ago ago that needs to be replaced. I wasn't particularly impressed with the holding power this clutch had. Can anyone recommend a clutch kit that has exceptional holding power even at the expense of light pedal pressure? When I pop the clutch I would like to smell burnt rubber instead of burnt clutch.

I have a 73 z/28 with a 421 smlblk and a 2 stage NOS kit. I had the same problem with clutch slippage, out of the hole(125hp) and when the 2nd stage kicked in(200hp)... Also w/a centerforce....
A buddy of mine suggested a multi-disk set-up from McCleod. I ran it for a summer, but there is a lot of adjustments and tunning involved.
I now run a jerico 4-spd with a clutch(single disk) from CLUTCH MASTERS out of california. I picked up .4 in the 1/4 (best of 10.19 1.41 60') . And have no unwanted slippage.
Those guys really know there **** . Every combo made is a dyno tunned and proven set, so they can match it to your combo. Try these guys...Good Luck

Did you go with the kevlar or the ceramic. Does it chatter on the street? How is it shifting that jerico around town. Is this car strictly for the track? Sorry for the thousand and one questions but Im very interested in bullet proof manually operated running gear, the problem Im having is I want my car to have good street manners/driveability. My power plant is a 540 merlin that made 640ftlbs, not sure how my new autogear m22s are gonna handle it, even with iron midplates and autogears new tail. The car will see a few trips to the track.

My car is mainly street driven(weekend warrior)
I use a ceramic disk(stage 5), and shifting the jerico is smooth.
With that much torque and horsepower I would definitly look into a stronger 4-gear, I went through 3 before buying my jerico. Be prepared to spend a small fortune. Hope this helps
