    2018 SS clutch question

    2018 SS model, 550 miles. Stock transmission, fluid already changed out for synthetic about 200 miles to go. Motor has light mods, ie airbox spacer, super light flywheel, Alba exhaust tune, stock exhaust modified for better flow.

    Got in a tight spot in a canyon yesterday, ended up having to give it some heavy throttle while up against a rock. Felt the clutch slip a couple of times, eventually got past the obstacle and the clutch acted funny for 15 seconds. Once I stopped and let it reset, it acted fine since then.

    I have zero interest in dealing with clutch actuator issues, but I feel like I need to replace the clutch pack or at least have one on hand. Is there a better option than stock that doesn't affect SS shifting?

    I'd say if your staying stock, grab a OEM clutch to have on hand. I would run the current clutch till it did have a definite issue with slipping. As you touched on above, once you start down the HD clutch kit road it can be hard to get ALL things tuned to play well together on the SS, but unfortunately if your going to be laying down big HP you have to be able to hold it.

    Recluse TorqueDrive Clutch has worked flawlessly for several of us with SS's out here in Arizona.
