Looking for some opinions on using a hydraulic throwout versus using a slave cylinder and a regular fork and bearing set up. I am running a Ram 5 1/2" triple disk and picked up Rams hydraulic throw out ( boy do you want to talk about sticker shock!!! lol). Looking the hydraulic throwout it looks like a lot of work whenever the clutch needs to be adjusted, something not really able to be done at the track if it were needed. Should I take this unit back and use the the slave cylinder and clutch fork and bearing???

Thanks for your input,

With the internal setup, you won't have external linkage to potentialy get bent or damaged. Only a hydraulic line to be ruptured.

They really aren't that tough to set up and after you've done it a couple of times its no problem. Like racer2, I have never had to adjust mine at the track.
