Re: cluch help

start excersiving ur leg

when I put in my king cobra I was surprised how stiff that was, getting used to it now but I can only imagine how stiff the others like the spec stage III can be.

Re: clutch help

the king cobra used to be way over rated (not sure if its the same still) far to stiff for its low holding power.

Re: clutch help

I didn't like my king cobra... its the hardest clutch i've ever felt, and that includes a stage III

Re: clutch help

There is a power grip ram clutch that all the cobra boys seem to be pimping out these days for their 600+ hp cobras.

I say spec 3+. It is lighter than the spec 3 and supposedly holds much better and is much more streetable. I have a spec 3 and it works great...is much lighter than a stock 03 cobra clutch but is still a lot heavier than a number of other non-performance clutches I have driven. I have felt the 3+ on a 05 GT and it just feels flat out tits...much lighter than my 3.

Then again, some other cobra boys are pimping a new exedy dual disc clutch...but that is abou 1400 for the kit.

Re: clutch help

What clutch cable are you guys using with the king cobra? I was doing some reading, and ive been hearing that most aftermarket cables make the clutch's seem so much more stiff than they really are. Most people recommend a motorsport cable
