Clutch Quadrant & Cable????

I am looking to upgrade my Clutch setup, because I think my cable is stretched. I want to go with the Maximum Motorsports Adjustable Quadrant an cable. I hear nothing but good thing about their cable. Alot of the other cables seem to break or stretch fairly fast. Input appreciated

in my GT i ran a Zoom cable and quadrant and it did pretty well...although all i ever read is aftermarket cables tend to stretch fairly soon. hopefully someone with the MMS brand chimes in

get a new OEM FORD cable and install a firewall adjuster and new quadrant. Finally get a petal height adjuster kit (maximum motorsport makes one) so you can fine tune it.

You want the clutch petal firm, no flop and you want .5 inches of pushing it in before the rpms slip (hold gas at 55mph ease in clutch if you get to .5 inches or more before rpms go up (slipping) then your good). This usually means the clutch will sit HIGH but the height adjuster is for that

i had mine adjusted to work like that...took a while to get use to driving but made speed shifting easier. My friend who has her own GT took mine for a spin one time and it was funny watching her try to shift

Right now my clutch is extremely tight. I am use to it because I drive it so much, but every one else that pushes it in says it's to tight. Will that solve that issue. I have been told that the clutch set up I have is to much for the car. I have a counterforce dual friction clutch an a fidanza flywheel. They recommended I go with just a satch clutch.

Definitely get an OEM clutch cable. I had a steeda and it broke within about 6 months. I had a UPR firewall adjuster and could never get it to stay where I adjusted it which got really annoying. Definitely don't get a UPR one. It was fun being able to adjust it, but there was only one spot that I could adjust it without any clutch chatter. Maybe I had a bad experience but I regretted putting that thing in a week after I got it.

Not to discourage you or anything, I think just between that and the RAM clutch I had it was a bad combo.

My clutch was also like doing a leg press after the ram clutch got put in, but I think it just had a ridiculous pressure plate that made it so stuff

maximum motorsports may use an OEM cable but not sure

I mostly stay away from steeda brand parts even though some of their stuff is good, just can be pricey

Becareful with replacement clutch cables with after market stage 2 and 3 clutches. I had a stage three spec clutch and the cable snapped on me. Down graded to stage 2 clutch with a different replacement cable and that snapped. Finically read some reviews on bbk clutch cable and it has a extra leverage point and that helped it a lot. Hasn't snapped yet. I've heard the best cables are oem cables though. My bbk has a little bit of slop but no more than normal wear and tear.

There is a whole lot of users on many Mustang sites that have proven the fact that the stock clutch cable is the best quality. I believe, as someone mentioned, that the Maximum Motorsports kit comes with an OEM clutch cable. The more users to prove something, the better.

+1m the oem clutch cable is the only one that's never snapped on me besides the bbk.
