My 401 is supposed to be 400HP and running a T10.....what is a good choice for clutch that won't slip and not too hard to push the pedal?......I was told by some the factory clutch isn't strong enough?......what is everyone using?.......thanks

I have a 401 (400 ish ) HP. Slipped /cooked the clutch a couple of times with people in the back with stock flywheel and R/T 3 finger clutch and 265-60 /15 tires. After getting a Hays Billet flywheel and their R/T 3 finger clutch setup no more cooking the clutch . If going with a heavy clutch or any old clutch setup make sure to rebuild your clutch petal / buy new linkage /springs / New Z bar / etc , that will make any heavy clutch into a light medium feel. There many combo's out there , other's will chime in ,good luck
