that site sucks

Something to handle that much power consistently will not be very streetable. Look into the higher clutchmaster models or a SPEC stage V kit.

RPS all the way....

Exedy is nice as well...

it all depends on your budget really.

ACT sucks, they only have an unsprung disc which cant handle extreme hp loads...it engauges like crap as well....

RPS..

two words

Forget RPS. Especially after discontinuing the carbon/carbon clutch for the MKIII and shelving the two disc carbon/carbon setup that was supposed to come out. Ask Drj about RPS also.

Tilton is the only way to fly. Anything else is just second place.

Tilton is pricey.
They have nice pedal boxes though.

I have an RPS Max 6 puck, it holds amazingly, but if you're going to use it in traffic, it blows completely....but no complaints besides having to try to fade it in rush hr

all 6 puck ceramics have hard engaugement becuase they need a super strong pressure plate to clamp them....its just the rules of the roost. Some people think that a 600lb or torqe capable clutch is going to be easy on the pedal feel....they need to be shot. LOL

I feel alot of people throw out complaints about he most nit picky things..

I mean my RPS chatters pretty bad if you dont give it enough gas ( say below 2000 rpm)....but its just the way it engauges...and i live with it, and i am fine!

Some people just dont know what they hay they are talking about...they buy some expensive clutch and think becuase its expensive it will ride like and angel...

you get my point.

FUCK RPS. :madf: Especially after discontinuing the carbon/carbon clutch for the MKIII and shelving the two disc carbon/carbon setup. Ask Drj about RPS also. Fuck them.

RPS definitely had their share of problems. As has Spec, as has ACT, etc. They were just all different.

And as far as discontinuning the RPS Carbon for the MK3. Call them and ask them how many they sold. That will answer your question as to why they would discontinue them. I think the total number sold was less than 20. Tell me how that is cost effecient and I don't blame them one bit for getting rid of it. It didn't sell.

HPF would be the best bet though.

ooh that is the beauty of a double/triple plate. Slippable like stock and just a tad bit higher pedal feel ;) Only bad part is the initial cost. As for what i went with. Well i told ya :)

Trent.

i know that it was because the number of sale of the CC clutches for the MKIII (like any other high ticket item for this car that is mostly owned by the cheap stingy bastards that make every damn group buy for items that we need FAIL). BUt if it is a 7.5 inch plate. The only thing they really need to keep on the shelf is the flywheel. Everything else is just interchangeable with the other clutches. Now this is speaking from a tilton's perspective. Not sure if they (RPS) does that or not.
