I have the centerforce on mine, maybe not as aggressive as you want, but works really well with a lightened flywheel i am told. Got mine for really cheap, looked at ACT and Clutch masters, just too much for a daily driver, the where up in the $700 range.

I'm new to the focus game, but in my truck I has a Centerforce dual friction and it was only about 300.00. Grabbed way harder than stock.

How many miles do you have on your car? How hard do you drive it? I'm not ragging you just curious how people are burning clutches up on a 2 or 3 year old car.

Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch!!
Burned my first one in 27k From riding the clutch!I do reccomend as I agree it is not very aggressive but it will last longer than the Stock CLutch..I don't recommend FORD Installing cause my Charges were over a 1000

I have 44k on the sachs OEM clutch that came with the car. I replaced it with the Centerforce Dual. and the FC alum. Light flywheel. and the t2-torsen Diff. Since the MTX tranny was put together so loosely, the stock diff stripped out. I wonder now how it would feel driving since I'm replacing the flywheel with an 8.5lb and an underdrive pulley..

I'd be expecting new tires here soon, I think.

oh and BTW.. The SACHS stock clutch sucks.. Exploded in pieces where I can't find the missing parts. All that was left was the clutch disk. which, has plenty of material left. but the part that holds the springs in. half of that is probably in the neighbors tree??? maybee LOL
