The Centerforce Dual Friction I had was pretty grabby, but that's going back quite awhile.

For a very light, daily driver, if you want a stock feel the King Cobra is very popular. However if you're going to boost it later on, you'll probably exceed the grip of it.

A Spec stage 1 or 2 would probably fit the bill as well, depending on how much power you plan on putting down.

I put a Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 on my Mustang and it feels about the same as stock if not lighter. Works nice and smooth. I plan on Supercharging so it should hold decent power. I suggest getting a new flywheel for insurance. They're pretty cheap if just get a stock one on Rock auto.

I had the opposite experience. The Spec stage 1 I had installed never worked right and lasted all of four months before I had to replace it. I almost had to stand on the clutch pedal to get it to the floor. My Centerforce is smooth as silk.

I replaced my clutch with the Exedy stage 2 and it grabs so much better and more quickly but still feel like stock.

+1 for Exedy



The ultimate daily driver project

Another +1 for Exedy Stage 2, had it in my GT when the stock clutch went out and loved it.
