Clutch Advice

I have spent a hour looking at post on here about clutch's and still didnt find what I am looking for. I am in need of a new clutch soon and want to get one that will hold me and last and not be to jerky. I know guys on here with 400-550hp should have some good advice. I am currently looking at the SouthBend Ofe or FE but I have heard the FE is weird also I hear alot about the valair may be double disc. Let me know you thoughts on clutchs.

Re: Clutch Advice

How much horsepower are you going to be running? It looks like you're around 400 now, is that where you're staying?

I will stay below 500hp for sure? I use this truck on the farm also. I said all I was going to do was a chip a while back but it will more than likely stay around 400-450hp

I plan on Drag racing a couple times just to see what it will do and run my sons truck just to see who has bragging rights. I may pull a couple time just to srr also I will not do this much As said this truck is used on the farm. But I like kicking some but some time.
