    Does anyone have any info on the Zoom clutch kits? Good, bad...?

    I'm shopping around and summit has Zoom and Centerforce, just thought I would see what others thought about the product. Thanks

    I'm looking to go with a Centerforce for my set up. I don't have any personal experience, but I knew some off roaders that ran the dual friction units with no problems.

    I have a zoom clutch installed on my car. Nothing but good things to say about it, break in miles weren't even that bad. Zooms' customer service is also very helpful, or at least they have been for me.

    Me and my buddy both ran one in our 5.0 about 7 or 8 years ago because advanced auto kept them in stock. They were junk. Mine wore out in 8k miles, and his throw out bearing that came with the kit went out after a month.

    Guess I'll play it safe and go with the better known/reviewed centerforce or SPEC

    Anyone know how the 03/04 stock clutch compares to a Spec stage 1?

    The 03/04 Cobra clutch holds 450 ft-lbs and is much, much smoother than the Spec clutches.

    I liked my Centerforce Dual Friction on my old 5.0. It was total overkill for the car, but whatever, it was cool. I always have had more money than sense, which is sad, because I don't have all that much money.

    Johnny, I have seen very few Centerforces run completly problem free - I would strongly suggest not going with one, you can PM me for more details if youd like
