Hays Dragon Claw Clutch

35 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any experience with this clutch? First time I'm seeing this available in the HEMI Market.

What's the difference mean with this specs:

 

Hays - 10", 1-5/32"-26 spline

RXT Clutch - 1-1/8 X 26

Shoot not much at all, depending on the day 420-430rwhp. Hopefully over 550rwhp with the 150 nitrous shot and C16.

If the clutch is good then the price ain't bad

I got a fadenza alum flywheel I think that alone was 300 or so then the McLeod. For 1300

Whatever happened with your McLeod?

Gonna be pulling that out here soon with the transmission. I would still need to send it to McCleod for repairs which I still am to keep as a backup or sell idk.

 

But honestly, I wanted to reset and buy a flywheel & clutch from the same brand. So I went with this one to try out.

About time they come with shims, kits that dont are a huge gamble.

That's what I thought as well, although I had bought shims from tick performance ahead of time...

Specifically it states:

 

"7. Remove two bolts retaining the clutch slave and release bearing and discard bolts. (It will be necessary to shim the release bearing.) Add supplied shims (18) behind the clutch slave and release bearing. Reinstall the release bearing assembly using supplied release bearing bolts (15) that replace the shorter stock bearing bolts. Torque assembly per shop manual."

Looks like ceramic discs.  A lot better than the metallic stuff for the most part as it rarely ends well and people try to drive them like they were organic so they don't last very long before they're glazed.  Needs to be like a light switch for them to live which is impractical on the street and hard on the drivetrain.

 

Best one I drove/ran was carbon carbon but the triple disc I had made was a real bitch on the street.  I think a dual carbon carbon like my boy jorge runs is the sweet spot.

 

Best of luck with the new clutch.  Looks nice.

Finally after a year and a half later, I’ve gotten around to put the car back together (clutch & transmission).

 

Now, I’ve run into another problem. The shims provided for the throwout bearing has pushed it so far up that the throwout bearing connection is pushed past the stock Bellhousing opening for the hydraulic line to connect. Any ideas?

 

I was thinking of finally just buying the QuickTime Bellhousing; if anyone could tell me the Bellhousing opening stretches further towards the clutch for the hydraulic line to fit where the throwout bearing has been pushed up? I’ll be pulling the trigger.

 

TBH overall, I’m thinking of just pulling the whole fking thing and going back to a stock clutch. Been a pain in the ass.

Damn bro, you can’t seem to catch a break with this. No answers for you, just giving you some support, it’ll be worth it in the long run. Keep strong!

You ain’t fuckin lying man. First the RXT clutch takes a crap out on me which fucked up my RPM transmission (not even a year in after getting it). Bought this clutch which is now starting to look like i was sent the wrong one.

 

Been working with Josh at HHP since i bought it through them and he got me in touch with a POC at Holley/Hays who now wants pictures to see what’s going on, and TBH I’m at the point of not knowing why they need pictures because there’s NO WAY this can be troubleshooted based on shops I’ve talked to.

 

Should just be a simple, hey send it to us back and we will send you another one. But whatever keeps the ball rolling forward i guess.

Seems like not the right parts.  You can see good images of the QT BH in my YouTube vid and pics on my site if that helps.

 

That’s actually where i went the day i saw the throwout bearing was pushed past the opening for the hydraulic line to connect, in addition to calling RPM to ask their thoughts which were same as yours

I ordered ANOTHER Hays Dragon Claw Clutch kit; except through summit this time vs. HHP. Little more pricey but I’m doing it in hopes to see if i get sent a different clutch than the one I was sent before. Pretty damn sure i was sent the wrong clutch initially. Also, so i can get a side by side comparison of the two.

 

If it’s the same end result, I’m sending it back and going back to stock flywheel / clutch
