Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this clutch. I would like to be able to get a lightened flywheel with it. I'm a little less than BPU so would this clutch not be the right one for me? THanks,
Thanks for the information Andi. Let me know how it works out for you. That race course looks really fun. I wish we had something like that here.Andi said:I just bought an RPS Stage 3 sprung hub clutch and a stock flywheel from Dusty last night. It goes in on Wednesday, so I'll let you know how I like it. (Rob Smith recommended the sprung stock flywheel with sprung clutch setup for the best streetability.)
FYI I did drive a single turbo Supra with a Mueller flywheel and RPS Stage 3 sprung hub clutch last night (Qualen's). Engagement felt worse than my TRD Twin in terms of engagement chatter, and it engaged over a wider motion of the clutch pedal (I'd say maybe 3 inches of motion versus 2, but that's just a guess). I'm guessing that the increased chatter is just due to the fact that it was just installed (10 miles on it) and not broken in yet.. everybody says they get smoother as they break in.
I will miss the TRD Twin's light pedal though. The RPS single-disc pressure plate is considerably stiffer. But I guess that's the price I have to pay for a quiet car at idle. That and the horsepower I'll lose through the stock flywheel..
... chatters very little... Dream on. When I had this combo and I stopped at a traffic light people were always looking at my car because of the chatter. The Arizona clutch is way more civilised than the RPS Stage 3 and as I've said before when new it is already more driveable than a broken in RPS.SupraLizard said:I also ordered the RPS Sprung Stage III from Dusty a few days ago. I will be using it with a Mueller Lightened Flywheel. I have heard that this setup is very street drivable, chatters very little, and apparently the difference with using a lightened flywheel is incredible....
I guess we will see, it should be going on sometime next week. I will post feedback. currently I have a stock flywheel and the RPS Turbo Clutch... not a good setup for BPU
here is what Dusty from MVP has to say about the AZ clutchFlavio said:
