Bill, try a Spec 3 or 3+. Stay away from the 2's is what I've been told. And if you decide to go Centerforce, try PMing anthony05gt about his setup.

Otherwise, just opt for the best route and install a twin disk setup like the GT500s have.

If this dude had posted this before I got my tires I'd be all over it. Especially after seeing Brians setup.

Where the ----- is everybody? Looks like I'm home alone.
Don't know about you, but man I gotta work to pay off this blower.

The 20s look OK, but the profile on the tires is waaaaay too small. It looks like the Shelby Super Svt, er Snake at Knotts. Too 4x4ish for me. The tires are way too small for the huge fenderwell the S197 has.

What about McLeod or Fidenza(sp?) ??
and if you're getting a different clutch you might want to consider replacing the stock throwout bearing from what I've been reading.

I gotta take a moment to Thank Doug from Bamachips. There was/is a problem with my X-Cal2 that was causing issues during the tuning of my car. Called SCT 3 times kept getting the run-around and finally they told me to call Bama for whatever reason. Got Doug and he too didn't understand why SCT wanted me to go through him. However he took it upon himself to contact my current tuner and they worked it out that I now have a RMA for SCT. If Doug hadn't done that I would have said F-k it and smashed it with a hammer, bought a new Diablo predator or new X-Cal3.... Doug is a stand-up guy and I just wanted to say thanks(even though he'll probably never see this).

Exactly, IMO.

The McLeod's that I've read about are twin disks..... The Fidanza clutches I have heard both pos and negs about.

Any clutch you get, you'll need a new flywheel or atleast will have to re-surface the stock unit. You'll also need to make sure you order the factory slave cylinder, bolts, etc. Also you should really read up on the differences between steel and aluminum flywheels..... Lastly, while you're at it, consider upgrading the input shaft on the trans to a 26 spline unit. And if you do, make sure you order the new clutch/flywheel combo appropriately so that you don't get a setup ready for the stock 10 spline input.

I gotta say though, I am very suprised at how well my stocker is holding up. I thought a year ago that I needed a new one then- now 12 months later plus a blower swap that makes tons more torque than previously, and my stocker has yet to show any signs of slip or fade.

That's cool- Fidanza is definitely worth looking into..... makes you wonder if half of (most of ?) the stuff you read about regarding clutch failures among any brand is actually material related or is it really just install related.

Those look nice as well as the McLeod's, but I think they cost some bucks. I may go with the Centerforce DF.

"Dual Friction is engineered for those who are looking for the ultimate in street/strip holding power and performance without sacrificing pedal effort and driver control. While the Dual Friction has been engineered primarily as a street clutch it can be used in mild competition applications."

Pro driver behind the wheel. If it were me, I would've hit the wall at turn 1.
