New clutch ?

I'm needing to replace my clutch this winter and I'm trying to decide which will work. AM has a stage 2 Ram HDX clutch for $184.99 and is good up to 450hp. I'm only spitting out 266hp & 364tq so even if I increase alittle I still will be within spec. What is everyone's opinion on this clutch?

I have the king kobra clutch.so far it feels great,but I don't have a lot of miles on it.I believe I paid 250 but it came with the triple quadrant fire wall adjustr and cable.

Sorry, I don't know about the Ram clutch.
I'm using the Centerforce Dual Friction clutch.
I really like the holding power (90% increase over stock) and the reduced pedal effort.
I have had mine for over 10 years and no problems with it to date.

I always used King Cobra clutches, but ten years is awesome! How's the pedal V the King Cobra? Mine were always very stiff? I know they cost a little more right?

The pedal on the Centerforce is easy to push in and hold.
So easy that I was really skeptical about how well it would hold, but it holds great.
Yes, they are a bit more costly, but it has been worth every penny to me.
PLUS, I have never had any cable or quadrant problems.

I went through two king cobras in about 6 years, put the quadrant in with the first one and broke two aftermarket cables. My car saw the drag strip alot for about two years(never on slicks) and daily driving. Rarely a day it didn't see 5.5k. I guess I could have saved $$$$ with a center force.
Rocking that auto now! HAHAHAHAHA

I like the auto trannys well enough, but I just never had any luck with them holding up for very long.

I'm hoping that if I stick to my no mods method, and keep my foot out of it I hope it will last. I have warranty until 105k or 2yrs. Only time will tell LoL
