hey just wondering how strong is the centerforce i clutch. my stock 280z clutch keeps slipping....i guess 230hp with light flywheel was a bad idea to put stock clutch in the car...hey i know i know what a dumb ass i am....dont get down on me to hard, i needed a car to drive plus the clutch was only 90 bucks from a friend of mine thats works at a local auto shop. i didnt want to spend the 300-400 dollar clutche right now,,,maybe later....but my centerforce i clutch should be arriving any time soon..got that for 85 bucks....hopefully it will work better than the cheap stock 280z one...hehe take care all and thanks for the information

for high performance engines you should use the CF2 for the dual friction. what engine do you have? if you have the L series how did you manage to get 290hp out of it? that sems kind of high. I did just about everything i could do aside from forced induction, on my engine L28, and i'm expecting only 250-275. Anyways, there is also the possibility that the clutch surface is not clean, therefore slipping easier.

I also forgot to tell you that if you buy online you could save a lot of money. for example

I found the dual friction for 250 after shipping and taxes for an 83 zx not turbo. regular price in stores is 330+shipping. for the zxt is about 280 with tax and shipping. thats the best i have found so far. the cf2 is about 50-70 less

DF will handle you!

I had the Nismo Clutch, and it was supposed to handle 250HP and 250 ft-lbs of torque. After breaking it in, I took it to the dyno. First run POOF! Up in smoke bigtime. The dyno operator said "I never seen a turbo come on so hard!"
Replaced it that weekend with a Centerforce Dual Friction and have run that in the car since (this was in 91 I believe!)
Turbo, 12#, 265-50-14 out back, 4000 holeshots traction-limited. No slippage!
