Can anyone point me in the direction of a GOOD clutch?

    My new Centerforce clutch, about 2K miles on it, is already fuckin shot. The dyno I went to loaded down the car so friggin much it was struggling. Then after I explained to him that its going to do that when the curb weight is set to 3500lbs!!! I had to fight with him to try 2700, then it was much better but the damage was already done. It was already starting to slip in 4th the other day, the dyno put the finishing touches on it.

    I followed the break-in and put 600 or so miles on it with easy stop&go driving. Still died :(

    Car is a:
    92 Accord LX
    DSM modified Turbo setup
    Big 16G running 12-14psi
    550cc injectors and 255lph pump
    2.5" turbo-back catless exhaust
    open wastegate dump

    Clutchmasters or Exedy clutches are the 2 best clutches on the market, IMO. I've used either/or in several cars, and never had any problems.

    I'll second both Clutchmasters and Exedy. I've used both as well, with good results.

    I'll umm.. 3rd Exedy. Good stuff

    No clutch, however; will live long with a crappy driver. You sure you aren't riding the clutch or letting it slip excessively?

    The Centerforce is 90% over stock, I made 245wtq with a boost leak. I think I've surpassed the holding capacity of this clutch now running higher boost.

    I've been racing cars for almost 10 years now and before that was dirtbikes/atv's. I'm familiar with how a clutch works ;)
