No prob for the response. I understand what you are looking to find out. Like I said before, I have been two five different clutches and on my new supra, I have pretty much decided to go with the GD Max from the beginning.
I typically "slip" the clucth usually anyways, it gives me more control and less wheel spin (though it may wear the discs a bit faster - thats what works for me). Being that the GD Max has a sprung hub, it would be likely to add that much stress on the drivetrain - but to be honest..its mostly in how you luanch too.
$2050 is just HKS' MSRP.. you can purchase it from any HKS dealer or any tuner that carries HKS. If you want to let me know where youre at, I can refer you to someone.
The guys at altered are great. Let me know how the clutch works for you when you get it in..
ElliottI currently have the HKS Twin and it can be pretty hard to drive in heavy traffic, is the GD Max much different? Also how much HP is the GD Max rated at?

The current or existing HKS Twin and Triples are now being called the GD Pro (Its a HKS Japan thing..) and the new addition to the HKS clutch line is the GD Max which is a Twin Plate system like the Twin GD Pro, but has the addition of a sprung hub and spring loaded dampening between the first two primary plates that sandwich the first disk. This is designed to allow for a more progressive engagment of the fist disk.
I would have to say that the GD Max is a easier than the GD Pro Triple that I had in my old car ( I am assuming that your Twin version is about the same if not a bit easier) in heavy traffic.
I will try to get some diagrams that illustrate how this works if anyone wants to see it. They should be up on the HKSUSA.com site in a few weeks too.
This should answer your question partially...Parham said:How much power will the GD Max clutch hold?
