Review 1 of 17

Price Paid:  $330.00 from performance center

Year / Model Reviewed:
1985 pu

Strengths:
no good

Weaknesses:
every weakness possible

Summary:
This clutch is garbage! This centerforce co. is a sloppy mfg of critical, very time consuming, costly components. My clutch does not release now and have to jam into 1st gear and mesh the rest. Now I have wasted about 3 days of my life on this foolish purchase. one day to install, one day to remove and one to pay the toilet. Who knows what else may have occured due to junk clutch binding. These companies got it so easy, just put a fake worthless minimum warranty on something we can screw you on and we have your money.

Review 2 of 17

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
1986 1970 Trans AM

Strengths:
None

Weaknesses:
Faulty weight system makes engine run out of balance.

Summary:
I recently completed a 6 year build on a 1970 Trans Am. All engine parts were completely balanced yet I would get a substancial vibration starting at 2700 RPM and increasing from there. It was not in the drivetrain because it was RPM related and would do it sitting still in the driveway. After ruling out any engine accessories or balancer issues, I pulled the trans and bellhousing and there it was. All the weights were slung offset to one side of the pressure plate fingers. There isn't anything to keep the weight ring from staying centered and the whole Center-Farce weight system is a big sloppy mess of a design. Imagine your engine's driveshaft wearing a weighted hula hoop! Took the clutch off and smooth as glass. I'm glad it didn't destroy my engine first. Fortuately, I didn't drive it that way. Hope this helps anyone else having the same vibration issues or thinking about using a CenterForce clutch with the ill designed weight system. My opinion....STAY AWAY FROM CENTER-FARCE.

Strengths:
great acceleration

I've been happy with this clutch as it has great pop/snap off the line. I don't have monster power so I have been problem free unlike these other reviewers here.

Review 4 of 17

Price Paid:  $389.00 from doesn't matter

Year / Model Reviewed:
1997 ford cobra

Strengths:
holds under torque

Weaknesses:
chattering , vibration on pedal

Summary:
purchased clutch on line from a web site selling only centerforce. put the clutch in myself at one of those u-fixit centers in phoenix(they were great)got the clutch in and it starting chattering at low speed and major pedal vibration,Keep in mind I had the fly wheel resurfaced by clutch doctors. So I took out the clutch again and sent it back to centerforce. they said the chater was from the transmission and that I had damaged something on install and they fixed it for free for me. Sounds fishy doesn't it. how many companies fix stuff for free when you damage it. so I put the Clutch back in and the chatter suddenly disapeared although the the vibration has yet to go away. It is just not as heavy. I would not recomend this product to anyone . I had to spend extra money and my time to take care of this and it is still not fixed to my standard which is perfect.the company never took any responiblity for their messup. instead they blamed me and fixed it anyways OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! right. STAY AWAY FROM CENTERFORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I spent extra money sending this back and forth to them and extra money to rent the space and tools to put it in. it cost me a total of just over $780 to put it in twice and for see extra costs in the future to get the vibration fixed. I hope this helps the consumer and hurts centerforce. bad customer service.

weight system works great,clutch has the feel of a stock clutch but grabs and holds like a mother fXXXer

Weaknesses:
none

Summary:
after many passes at the track with my 500hp stang with slicks on it launching at 5500rpm and tons of street driving it finally started to slip but u can tell the weight system works because at high rpm the slip would stop.ive never had a clutch hold this long when using slicks at the track.i have used many other clutchs like a ram clutch that lasted one day and 5 passes,any that says this clutch is crap eaither didnt install it right or cant drive and thats the truth.
