pressure plate? The motor is ~ 120-30 HP.

Thanks

Daiken Super disk made by excel(sp?) is the most popular for street and performance. Not harsh and will hold that amount of HP

I love my ACE copperhead disc, moves my heavy bus (~140HP torkey engine) without slipping and with smooth engagement.

I'm sure it will handle my next engine upgrade as well as before.

Centerforce dual friction disc from GBE or CB. Great on the street and also the drag strip Smile

Get a Daikin disc. You DO NOT have enough HP to need a $120 Centerforce or Copperhead disc.

Are the "Kush Lock Clutch Disk" any good for up to 120HP?

Put an old school 3 puck in it! It won't slip, then bring in your trans for major repair

I use kush locks on my Kennedy stage 1 combos myself. U could very well use a dsiken as well. My cheap friend uses a 19$ Hong fong on his 2165 and gets a laugh from me ever time. The two first ones are priced similiarly anyway.

I'm using a Kennedy Stage I pressure plate with a CB Super Disc #1359

http://www.cbperformance.com/catalog.asp?ProductID=601

Very nice engagement and no slip with a 120 hp turbo engine.

$64.95 is a price that is easy to take too.

Will the 200mm Kush Loc work on a 210mm flywheel/PP T4 going into a T1?

If not, what do you recommend?

Get a Daikin disc. You DO NOT have enough HP to need a $120 Centerforce or Copperhead disc.

Never, never use a Kush with a Kennedy, unless you are practicing for how fast can you pull a engine contest

Another vote for Daiken. I pulled mine out at 10k miles and the ink stamps were still visible. At 50k the surface grinding marks were still visible. It may the last clutch disc I'll ever buy; I don't think it's goin to wear out. Laughing It's about to go back in my '64 to see how many more miles I can put on it.

At 10K miles. White ink stamp is visible.

It is not about lasting long, the question is will it hold the torque and the abuse at the strip?
This is my fear, when step off the clutch will the center of the disc just shear/broke?
Is the Daikin (sp?) cope with the occasional drag strips? (150 DIN HP)
