McLeod's RST Twin Disc Clutch Kit
Ensure your high performance 2001-2010 Mustang transfers the power to the ground with McLeod's RST twin disc clutch kit! This RST twin disc clutch kit is intended for high-horsepower street cars. The McLeod RST clutch kits are economically priced twin disc clutches that use a factory style flywheel. This kit supports up to 800 hp while remaining completely street-able. The organic lined clutch discs provide smooth engagement with a soft pedal effort, making these clutch kits ideal for street driven Mustangs.
Twin Disc Design
Why buy a twin disc clutch? When you're putting down as much as the 800hp this clutch handles, you want more frictional area for more grip without as much clamp load pressure that a single disc clutch has. This provides a softer pedal effort for smooth and even clutch engagement.
Two clutch alignment tools are included in this kit for several applications. You will need to use the alignment tool that fits snugly into your pilot bearing.
Break In Period
Break in period should be 500 miles of city type driving, double the break in period for highway driving. No aggressive driving. No hole shots or drag launches. Gear changes should be made at 4,000 RPM or less. No speed shifting.
Terrific design, top quality materials used, best clutch I've ever owned. It is pricey, but this is one case where "you get what you pay for" is very true. The pedal effort literally felt like a Ford Focus 4 banger. I've installed three RST's now (one in my car...2 in other cars for friends) You need to take time to read the instructions & do the steps exactly as the instructions say. You need a good/accurate torque wrench (10-100ft/lb range) with 3/8" drive preferably. When completed, you won't believe how smooth the engagement is, yet how powerful the holding force is, all with a super light pedal effort. My only complaint was I had to make a trip to the hardware store to purchase grade 8 socket head cap screws (Allen head) to attach the clutch adapter plate to my flywheel. (I highly recommend the use of a billet aluminum flywheel with a replaceable friction surface to pair with this clutch) The stock flywheel bolts (and even the ARP flywheel bolts) won't quite clear the tight tolerance in the mounting area of this clutch set-up. So invest a couple bucks for grade 8 socket head cap screws & perhaps an Allen head socket for your torque wrench if you don't have one already. The RST clutch is lighter than any typical single-disc set-up & therefore allows your engine to lose parasitic drag & rev quicker. Paired with a lightweight steel or (preferably) billet aluminum flywheel, your car will become noticeably quicker in the rev department...the secondary benefit to this is reduced stress on your transmission. All in all McLeod did their homework & really bridged the much needed gap for Mustang owners who have enough power that a stock or stock-ish clutch isn't an option & who don't want to wear lead boots & do power squats to push their clutch pedal. Did I mention the RST (as well as the RXT) clutch is also rebuildable? It is! If needed, yu can send it back to McLeod and they can rebuild it. Unlike the typical clutches that end up in the recycling bin. This is another thing to consider long-term.
