based on the success of my last SB i bought a stage 4 drag for my new setup {880 whp, 750tq}. This clutch has been great on the street but has really let me down at the strip on drag radials. At this point i'm leaning towards the new McLeod for the v160. reason being they have a good reputation with the vette crowd {high torque}.

Isn't the stage 4 still a single disc? With that kind of torque I would think you'd need at least a twin. To have 0 slip at the track you'd probably want a triple.

I'm making much less torque than you and I can tell my RPS ceramic single is slipping a bit at the track.

Even the Vette guys with the T56-Magnum move onto twin discs around the 600tq mark. Although I think their clutches have a greater surface area diameter(don't quote me on that).

The new McLeods seem like a real nice option I think.

But also the Comp MPC twin discs are extremely nice and drivable as well. You can see several similarities when comparing it to the McLeod's (heavy street oriented flywheels, first disc strapped to flywheel, large almost 10" diameter, etc). I absolutely love my MPC stage 3 (850 wheel torque rating). Can do the whole Real St. foot out the window test to take off from a stop, even did it on an incline no problem. Pedal firmness is damn near stock, and the street manners are damn near stock. For the money it's one helluva value coming in a bit less than the McLeod, and they also include flywheel bolts (also saves money by not having to purchase ARP's which McLeod kit requires). They also make a Stage 2 (750 wheel tq) and a Stage 4 (950 wheel tq). I'm so happy with my MPC, coming from my old 8.5" quarter master setup. I actually enjoy driving my car again!

Been reading through the thread and so far i'm loving the comments on the OS Giken TS Triple Plate Clutch whats the max tq that anyone has run to it? Hadn't seen any numbers although I could have missed it just got of a 14 hour shift :sleep: I'm looking for a clutch that won't be to much different from stock and also hold up 700-900 hp range
I have been using the OS Gilken Triple since April with over 900hp & tq. It is a beast to ease or creep into from a stop in slow traffic. The chatter gets a load of "something is wrong with your car" comments. But it performs perfectly with no issues and the slow take offs I write up to my car wanting to fly and not crawl. Plus the lope of a built motor doesn't help creeping around either.
