Price I paid for my RXT I would have had to spend $500 or so last I looked to get an equiv Monster. This was prior to the LT1 setups they offer now and I was already hesitant about with my prior failure. Lot of coin to drop to have something possibly fail.
I have approx 15k miles on my RXT on stock master and have no issues at all when turning up the boost to the 750whp range. Went with it because friends did in the past on their cars and never had complaints up to the 900whp range. Pedal feels just like stock. Wife doesn't complain like she did when driving the Monster with Tick master.
A broken damping spring is typically indicative of a input-shaft issue, either the pilot or main bearing is damaged, or there is excessive run-out on with the input shaft.
Looking at the Level 2 single disc that you posted pictures of, it looks like the disc and pressure plate were not wearing evenly. Usually that's from a bent disc.
Also the level 2 single disc is rated for 550WHP, so with your 600WHP to 900WHP range turbo Fbody, it would not have lasted long in the end.
Also the Tick master will always make a clutch pedal stiff.
The LT1-XX series clutches have been out since late 2013, so as far as apples to apples comparisons go.
The RXT is a little over 1500.00$ with a steal flywheel. Our LT1-SC is around 1300.00$ with a steal flywheel. The SC is also rated at 1000HP/TQ to the wheel, and not rated at "Theoretical TQ" at the flywheel like the McLeod.
Also our LT1-R is rated for more power then that, and its still cheaper.
Having said that, I hope the RXT will continue to work well for you in the future.
