    i know that centerforce clutches are highly recommended, but also highly $$$
    i have been told that a good performance clutch that doesnt cost as much is the Luk Pro Gold series, which is what i will go with when it comes time for the 465/205 swap

    as for flywheel, aluminum cost big $, will save you about 18-20 lbs
    so... only recommended if you are trying to save every once you can

    ill second the Luk pro gold. I asked around and thats what most suggested when i needed a new clutch. After ive been wheeling with it for a while now and driving it I am definitly happy with it.

    Back in the day, Centerforce clutches used to be all the rage... from what I understand now you are just buying the name and they aren't worth a $hit. Lots of guys at the drag strip stay FAR away from them because they have trouble w/ them coming apart, and I know from personal experience w/ my dads Cuda' that the Centerforce we stuck in that lasted about 200 miles.

    I stuck a RAM clutch in my rig (like 120 bucks) from Jeg's I think and I have never had any trouble w/ it... and I am not exactly easy on my clutch. It has been slipped, abused, filled w/ water and mud, etc... and still keeps on tickin' like the day I installed it.

    can you buy just the Luk pro gold clutch disc itself or do have to buy everything?
