looking for any input for a clutch and pressure plate to handle 600-650 rwhp !
:stupid:cre3d said:horsepowerfreaks.com feramic clutch disc with an ACT or RPS pressure plate is your best bet in this scenario.
simann said:heh, I run an RPS stage 3 6 puck ceramic disc.....love it to death! 6000 miles and still going strong.
Tilton is pricey.
They have nice pedal boxes though.
Cost of Ownership..... and it should read TCO. Total Cost of Ownership.simann said:Figgie, WTF is "COO"..... :dunno:
pnutcar said: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
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.
Tilton is the only way to fly. Anything else is just second place.
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 yasimann said: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.
Trent said: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.
