07 Shelby clutch

I know this is an old topic but it's obviously a new problem for me. I'm having the lovely clutch problems these cars are notorious for. I'm looking at clutch options. I know McLeod RXT is probably the most recommended clutch but what about the Spec stage 3+ (notice the +, it's important). Price wise, there is a huge difference. What do you guys think? Any help is appreciated.

When I had the clutch in my 11 replaced, my tuner recommended a Spec SS trim. Have had no issues with it @ all.
Whatever you decide on, make sure you break it in properly, Spec recommends a 500 mile break-in.

I know my friend that put the McLeod in his wishes he got the spec instead. He doesn't like the McLeod and actually had a problem with the first one he put in.

Geez. I have that fear. Paying that much money for something and it not being right. It's gonna be over a thousand dollars, it better work right the first time. And, that Spec SS trim, they get up there quick. Around $1,500. I'm thinking it'll be McLeod, when I can afford it. At this point, it's the worlds largest paper weight.

Looked at ACT, not too many good things said about them. Anybody have any experience with them on our cars?

I'm wondering if I call the Ford dealership here, where I did not buy the car, if they will help any at all. I think the tsb went up to 50k miles. I'm at like 52.

You loose nothing by asking.
Ford makes the decision, not the dealership, maybe you'll get lucky !!

Just a little update. I went ahead and bought the McLeod RXT. I'm going to try to install it myself (me and my brother). Sounds like it's going to be a fun time lol.

Question: What were some of your symptoms at 52-K miles? I have an 07 Shelby and am curious, I have less than 20-K on mine.

The hiss should have been my first sign. But with added power, slippage instantly became an issue. There are several TSBs out there on it.
