Re: Clutch disc experience

I suggest you ask the clutch manufacturer. Or maybe better, call a specialist and ask about the quick wear. I believe 
there was a posting here recently praising one of the Mopar trans specialists. I *think* is was about Don at Brewer's 

Some one let me know if it was about another vendor please.

>  Hi All,

>  Looking for any opinions on the McCleod Organic/ Ceramic clutch discs.  I currently have the 11” version of this in 
my car.  Running an 833 4 Speed with a 426 MW.  Approx power in the 500hp/ 500t range.
>  Ive had great luck with the package and the only surprise is after about 3000-4000 miles the disc is wore out.  This 
set up has not seen hard use at all.  I had a slight screech and hard shifting into first (was suspecting a bad pilot 
bushing) coming on anyways so got home from Carlisle and tore it down.
>  The organic side of the disc is just starting to show the edge of the heads of the rivets.  yikes.
>  Good timing I thought.
>  Pressure plate and flywheel look fine.
>  Is this normal life span of this type of disc?  Should I be looking at something else?  The drivability of this setup 
has always been great.  No chatter or slippage of any sort.
>  Any thoughts or experiences to share would be great.
>  thanks!
