Not much longer than the first one lasted, the 2nd one gave out. 1 rally, NO trips to the strip. Same squeeling and slipping. In talking with others, they have had issues with Ace clutches as well on our cars. Mine has been in storage for a while, but Van is going to be sending me an ST Trim to put in it's place very soon once I get back home from business and car is out of storage.
I was seriously considering this clutch before Ace introduced the 3 disc clutch. I know if I have issues with the Ace this will be the next choice to resolving clutch issues
I sent you a PMJust a follow up for anyone with this clutch. Come to find out the way they bench test their clutches is the issue. We decided to take apart this clutch and built an apparatus to VERTICALLY mount the clutch and take our own measurements and that proved to be the issue. The bench test these clutches laying on a bench so the additional pull of 'gravity' gives a false measurement. We re-shimmed the first floater and the clutch works flawlessly now. No engagement issues, no getting stuck in gear or lunging forward. It operates like stock now. Let me know if you want more specifics.
