Would that work if I wanted to truck pull every once in a while?

The moment you say truck pull is the moment I say dual disk.

you will not be competitive at all with a single, and if you try here what it looks like


A dual disk is worth the extra coin. and cost the same or less when it's rebuild time

Re: What's the best clutch to buy????

If you daily drive it..... don't sled pull it. Or get an auto.

Other than that, my 300 dollar clutch held over 540rwhp and plenty of people making less power have roasted the "better" clutch offerings out there, so pick your poison.

I had a guy local to me make mine. I'm sure it could still be had for a good price if somebody needed one.

Re: What's the best clutch to buy????

I had visions of sled pulling, and did this past weekend, so forked over the cash for a South Bend dual disc... Daily driving takes a bit to get use to, backing up wagons, and grain carts takes a toll on the foot after a bit though...
