I have BPU GTR and I'm running the OS Giken triple disk. It was a brut at first but now after 1500 miles its no big deal to drive at all. Just a little noisy:)

I have the Hks Triple and I still stall once in awhile.
The clutch was undrivable at first, and I would stall every other light. I wanted to throw it out like many people do. But thinking of how much I had to pay for it, and knowing that others can drive this clutch why can't I.
Now it's been 7000 miles, I'm still shaky on uphill stops. The clutch pedal feel is very light, (and I'd say maybe half of the length of stepping of the stock clutch) but the catch point is very small and hard to remember. The clutch requires continuous attention, such that when I don't pay attention (talking on the phone), I stall.
It doesn't have a consistent feel. Sometimes letting off the clutch a little will allow you to go forward, and sometimes it goes very near the top.
I don't drag at all, but slipping the clutch at times feels very hard on the drivetrain. There would be like a clunk, clunk, clunk before it would catch to go forward. Not a good feeling, but not unbearable. Because of this clunking, I'm real uneasy when doing peel outs.

In conclusion, this clutch requires a lot of patience, it would feel like learning how to drive manual all over again. If only at Bpu, you don't need the added strain of having a clutch made for up to 800Hp or more, unless you're planning for future upgrades that you could have one clutch now that you don't have to change later.

I also like to add that the chatter of the clutch is sometimes annoying, it goes away when revved higher or engaged though. Maybe my car idles differently with cam sahfts, but the chatter is pretty loud. Everybody who doesn't know the clutch (which is everybody who doesn't own a supra with a multidisc clutch) will ask "is there something wrong with the car?" or "the car doesn't sound too good, sounds like somthing's loose."

My friends that has tried the clutch is a little scared of driving the car. They said this clutch is another theft deterent because they'd be lucky if they get down the block without reving the engine hard enough for you to hear them. Knowing that nobody can drive the car except you, has its positives and negatives.
