McLeod clutch failure

1658 18
I just burned through a brand new McLeod RXT 1200 at the track in three passes. I broke it in exactly as instructed, 500 miles of stop and go traffic. Took almost a month. Then fried it in one day left me dead at the end of the track.

Wondering what your experience has been and what other options are out there. Cars at 850hp/866tq so should have been fine. Not really looking to go through the same thing again.

Been running my McLeod RXT1200HD for almost 5000 miles now at 1075 wheel on a RAM Aluminum flywheel. Probably 150 60-130 pulls and 30 or so 1/4 pulls on 315/30-20 Nitto DR’s. Flawless so far. All be it though not on stock 1st gear ratio which requires one to slip the clutch way to much on launch and that may be your issue. I run a 2.66 first gear in the Tranzilla. I have a Mantic triple new in box for when it fails though as it’s at its crank HP limit at the moment.

That’s a killer deal. If I didn’t have the triple already I would be all over that.

That’s awesome that your McLeod is holding up. Mine had a terrible vibration with both past McLeods. I thought it was an alignment issues, but after getting the Mantic installed it completely went away.
Yep, THANK YOU was killer deal, it has been sold.
The vibration you felt that went away with replacing your McLeod with the Mantic, can you describe it? Could you feel it in the shifter or ???!!
