New Updated Svt clutch? do you have it?

my clutch was slipping and ford dropped the tranny and said that the stock clutch that was on the car was weak and they are putting in the new updated clutch that is supposedly stronger?

just wondering if anyone has this update, if you do how is it?

Wish I had knew and it was available months ago. My clutch went out at 8700 miles, just started slipping. I've got a aftermarket clutch and flywheel now, but I sure could have saved some money.....Oh Well.

You can make your clutch slip, if you really want to know what it feels like - just don't let the clutch all the way out when you try to accelerate. The engine will rev high, and the car will not move forward as fast as it should be, if it moves at all. OF COURSE, this is BAD for your clutch. So if you try it just to see what it's like, only do it once, and only do it for a second or two. Unless you are looking to buy a replacement clutch soon.

Now that's a major issue! As long as it get replaced under warr I guess. I haven't heard about this before. Hopefully I won't get this problem. ... Did it happen while driving and leave you stranded someplace?
