    You will notice a huge difference going to the Mcleod twin plate. Alot smoother, especially on the way back up. The first few times I drove my RR, i got jelly leg from the original clutch. Hadnt pushed down on a clutch that tough since my Dad drove a 1986 Ladncruiser Troop Carrier. That thing would make you knee yourself in the face everytime you let the clutch out. Also the only vehicle Ive ever driven with a longer shift stick thatn my Roadrunner! troopy.jpg

    Part of the factors are rr are fairly heavy car, as horsepower goes up the spring pressure needed on a single disc clutch also goes up which means leg workout goes up. Twin disc distributes that pressure so easier on leg. Regular throw out should work but I really like my hydraulic. They run about 600$

    I just had my RST twin disc setup relined with their RXT package, good for up to 1000hp according to Mcleod. Probably the last setup in their lineup before going to a full-race clutch. The RST was definitely a big improvement, especially from slip-engagement. Alot smoother than the factory single disc I had on there before.

    I have the same hood support pads as you, mine is also a 68. Looks like I will be able to drill that hole out a liitle bigger, and fix the pins in the same position that you have. That would look real clean. Current rad 2.jpg
