Engagement on my clutch is very smooth, with little pedal effort. I would think that the Soft-Lock or Ram versions are also similar. For any hard or prolonged street use, you would want to add base pressure (take out some of the slip).
Actually the Street Twin was a great street clutch, it has smooth engagement too, just hits to hard when you dump it at line with slicks.
Clutchless upshifting on the street is easy, like you said just let off a lil (rpm gear matching) and it comes out and right in the next.
I just have a mental block when I'm going down the track. My right foot wants to stay planted on the floor. So what seems to be working, at shift rpm, I hit the two-step button on the shifter, the motor stumbles just enough to come out and into the next.

Thanks! I hope that it FLIES!!! LOL. I plan on running the L76/L92 setup on my 408 so we will see!
Hmmm... Im liking what Im reading about the clutch. I meant to give a call to McLeod and ask about that Soft-Lok. I will try again tomorrow.
Set some explosive charges and KNOCK DOWN THAT MENTAL BLOCK! LOL! I guess you will have to get used to it. Im a power-shifter myself so I understand how, mentally, its hard to tell yourself to LIFT AND SHIFT! LOL.
What type of gears are you running? Street gears or race gears?
BTW... NICE RIDE! I knew I had seen your car somewhere before. My wife is supportive of the racing also. As long as the bills are paid, she doesnt give a hoot! I just got a raise so the progress should pick up some. I was recently forced to buy a car (2002 Nissan Maxima SE 6-speed) since the tranny in my GTP decided that it didnt wanna play fair anymore. I hope my ride turns out as nice as yours.
