Default Pulled out my Ram 402/6130 after 4K miles.......

While in the process of installing a new motor, the clutch came out. The disk and PP look AWESOME, when you consider I beat the living **** out of the clutch and I floored the car with about .000002 miles of break in <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" /> . Every bit of that 4000 miles was on the STOCK master cylinder as well <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="gr_eek2.gif" />

I will be putting this clutch back in, with an adjustible master and plenty of confidence that it's gonna give me plenty more miles of holding power. This clutch has been awesome since day one, Ram kicks ***.....

I too have the 6130/402 VDS with a RAM billet steel flywheel. I love my clutch. Mikey@Rapid Motorsports www.rapidmotorsports.com installed it for me. It is for the most part as slippable as the stock clutch was but it grabs like a **** when dumped. My clutch broke my 26x10.5x16 et streets loose at the track after I had gotten a 1.60 60ft and I spun until I slammed 3rd. The announcer even chuckled as he said"oh ohhh, he's getting a little squirly"! I, myself didn't find any humor in almost slamming into the wall.

I wouldn't even resurface it, but I am going to for a little more weight shaved off <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />
