    Do yourself a favor and go with the RXT, Ive had both of them because I cheaped out the first time...the RST didnt like the abuse I gave it at the track and gave up on me with only 1500 miles on it at around 600hp. RXT now with an aluminum flywheel and couldnt be happier, by far the best clutch Ive ever had and Ive had many.

    26 spline rxt and fidanza aluminum flywheel here. love this clutch. when i first test drove the car at the ford dealer they had no clue what clutch was in it. i was worried something was wrong with it cause the pedal was so easy compared to a stock one. i later tracked down the former owner and was stoked to find it had that combo.

    Sounds great.

    Metco and Mcleod are my two favorite product lines to sell.:rockon:

    Do you have the Mcleod clutches dropped shipped from them or do you stock them? Just wondering cause if I go with one of there flywheels it seems they bolt it all up then ship in one box.

    Why don't you list parts that you sell on your website? You have very competitive prices. I had no idea you sold McLeod clutches until after I placed an order elsewhere. I could have saved a few bucks.

    +1 I checked out his site the other day too, not even sure what his prices are, but I'll likely contact posi first on the clutch kit and flywheel.

    Unfortunately you can't combine the gift card with any other discount codes.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks, Jared

    I have the RST and Fidanza Aluminum flywheel and love it. It was enough to snap an axle the first and only time I took it to the track in September. I will step up to the RXT next time around but am good for now.

    One thing I did find out directly from McCleod is that with some flywheels you may have to run a small shim to get the correct play in the disk against the flywheel. You should be able to turn the disk and I couldn't with mine.

    I've ordered my RXT and am very hopeful that it will be better than my previous setup. If this thing is as smooth as so many of you say, I'm going to be much happier. I have the same list of parts going in mine other than I am keeping the Spec almn flywheel since I already had it.

    ^I ran the RXT with the Spec flywheel. Sad to say mine still chattered just a hair though. Then again I somehow warped the entire flywheel and not only the insert that goes inside it by powershifting lol. It had a 3+ in it and it came out as soon as I knew it was slipping.

    You are making about 150 ft lbs more tq than I am so I hope I don't run into the issue you had. My car is a daily driver and I rarely take it to the track these days. But I swear if I have to go and pull the tranny one more time, I'm going to flip!
