Good to see you went with that clutch. I love it. It'll take you a few days to get used to it, but once you do, it's awesome.

Did you get the light flywheel?

I love mine too. It hooks.

Even though McLeod says there's no idle rattle due to their anchored floater plate there is still some idle rattle... How are other's experience with this??

Rattle went away after ~1k miles on friends car.

I can't decide between the RXT and Mantic dual when I upgrade from my LS9R setup.

I was getting ready to go back to the dealership and tell them they had left something loose in my trans. after they installed my RXT. It may go away at 1k miles like Unreal says, but I haven't driven mine that much. I'm at around 400-500 miles and I don't notice it as much.


Turbosixx,
I know you asked for Mike's review but I feel qualified to reply since I just had mine installed. The clutch pedal is awesome and it hooks great.

I may be overthinking it, but I'm worried about it being 'too much' clutch for my setup. I'm worried it'll hook so much that it'll bog down the engine too much at every shift. I'm sure it's just a matter of getting used to it and learning how to drive it. But overall, it's an awesome street clutch.

Gonna be really tricky to 'slip' that clutch. It just grabs and goes. Gonna take some practice so you can get your shifting down.

It's a street and drag clutch. I looked at the BC2 but read it does not last long. I found nothing but good about the rxt.

RXTs drive like stock once broken in. They do take mileage to do that.
