The HPF Feramic or HPF Bronze disk with ACT Heavy Duty Pressure plate and stock flywheel.

[Is there an echo in this thread?]:)



Take Care and good luck with the next clutch choice.

thanks for all the replys but someone let me know why i shouldnt use my fidanza fly? i still have a stock fly in my closet and i can buy a new fritction plate for the fidanza also but why switch back? and why not use the act xtreme plate over the hd plate? i have the act heavy duty now with only 1k milesonit ,can i reuse it?
keep in mind i just put 28x11.50x16 et streets on which stress the clutch a bit much. which is why it probably burnt up so quick..

Sounds right... yes you can resurface the flywheel. Not too many places can though. I send mine to South bend clutch for resurfacing. Good luck and that clutch should not dissapoint.

hpf says the use of my fidanza fly isnt recommended for drag use. but i already have the fly and just need to by a new friction plate and use the bronze sprung disk and all should be ok.??? can i get away using the fidanza fly and a sprung bronze from hpf? any downsides to this combo??

They say not to use the fidanza as it doesnt disapate heat very well and their clutches fuse to that pretty easily. Mine bronze sprung fused to it in under 7000 miles if that. I just slipped it to hard, but i wouldnt reccomend that setup ask chris he will tell you the same thing

I am in the process of installing my Southbend dxd-tz clutch kit.Before i ordered mine,i spoke to Andy their,He told me it's slippable and it's almost like stock.I asked him if my wife can drive the car with it in and he said yes.

My original stock clutch finally went out on me this past weekend. Since I had such good luck with it and I'm only at about the 500 rwhp level I was thinking of just doing the Bronze disc and South bend pressure plate. Seems like that would be closest to stock slippability and feel. Anyone have any experience with it?

I just installed a HPF Bronze disk with a south bend PP with a RPS LW FW. I only have 20 miles on it so far so this is only an initial impression. My last clutch was a ACT PP with stock disk/FW. Stock like engagement, heavy pedel pressure, didn't hold up to being slipped at the track.
So far my new combo engages almost as well as a stock disk, much lighter pedel close to stock. I also feel that the lighter pedel make it eaiser to modulate the clutch for smooth engagement. I'm sure that once broken in this clutch will be totally a non issue as for as streetability goes. I've driven 2 supras with RPS PP's and AZ disks and a RPS carbon carbon and they are all like on/off switches compared to this new combo.
If it holds well at the track I'll be very happy with it.
