New 383 Build
I am accumulating parts for my new 383 to go into my 3300# (3450# with driver) 'vette. DD says 385 hp 435 # torque. Using a ST-10 4 speed and have a clutch question. Car wil be 99% street driven, has a 3.36 rear, and 27.2" tires. On very rare occasions I would probably launch @ about 2000 rpm.

I am looking at Centerforce clutches, both Centerforce 2 and dual friction. What would be a better choice, or is there some other brand I should look at?

BTW, what does a stock 350 flywheel weigh?

We've put Dual Friction clutches in my '67 Chevy (383) and my son's '89 supercharged Cougar. Both function well and are easy on the leg.

I'm not familiar with other HD brand clutches, but I remember the "leg-breakers" from the 60s. Ergo, I was drawn by Centerforce's claim.
