The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.


For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.


Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    Ordered my Act 6 puck yesterday.

    I'm still leary because of my last experience with a 6 puck but we'll see I guess.

    I ended up getting the clutch and flywheel for 420.00 shipped off of a company on ebay. I called them and just ordered straight through them and they cut me a sweet deal.

    I'll try and post up after I get it in, I'm not looking forward to the break in period though

    I would just leave it in neutral and hope it rolls sometimes. And I have the HD pressure plate. The XD plate sucks ass for traffic. However, if you dont have over 400lb-ft torque, you really dont need it.

    my pedal is pretty stiff... And the clutch travel is a lot less them an OEM clutch, and u will have to adjust your clutch pedal play and height... I've been stuck in traffic before and it sux bigtime...
    Everytime i need to go i need to rev it up past 2k and let out the clutch and the tires always chirp... The rain sux even worse... I think my flywheel is around 13lbs... I miss driving mine though... cant wait to fit my turbo...

    i think v4lu3s is here too.

    Anyways i'm in the same boat as you Brady. Looking for something to hold 350-400wtq but not make me walk with a limp

    Guys with the strong ACT clutches how is the pressure feel? Is it like pushing a brick wall or could u stand 1-2 hours of stop and go traffic with it?

    Well, it seems as if most of you like the ACT stuff, and I've never tried them so I might as well add them to the list. I just hope it can handle full throttle shift, because my CM is still fine, hit boost whatever, just slips like crazy if I attempt even a fast shift with barely letting off the throttle.

    On the other hand I've heard good things on the Comp. Clutches as well.

    I'll call the companies tomorrow and get some prices from a few places on the net and see whats up.

    As far as a flywheel, I've had this 8lb one for like 5 years almost, I'm well adjusted to it so I think I'll get another 8lb'r, it was a bitch at first but ehh, it's not so bad now.

    We shall see. I'll keep you guys updated on what I get.

    L8r and thanks

    My Competition Clutch 6puck sprung hub [stage 4] is awesome. Drives good, for a high torque clutch, in traffic. Stands street and strip abuse [4 runs in 4 hrs in one day, and 3 runs in 3 hrs in one day] and it shifts PERFECT! 12lb Comp. Clutch flywheel too. Love it!

    Brady go with ACT, I have an ACT full disc satge 2 street/strip and ACT pressure plate and stock flywheel. don't get an 8lb flywheel vuz it will be harder launch and traffic driving wont be nice Or go for a 6 puck ACT clutch , they are very streetable bot sprung and unsprung and hold great power. but so far my full face disc is holding up good boosted h23

    So now this list is:

    Oem-2002
    Clutchnet.com 6 puck-2002-2003
    CM Full face carbon kevlar 2003-2004 (turbo'd and this one had no chance
    CM FX500 Stage 5 Un-sprung hub 4 puck 2004-2006

    My flywheel is also toast, so this is looking like an expensive round of mods coming up.

    I think I'm gonna go with a Fidanza 8lb flywheel and another CM 4 puck, but I was just looking for anyone elses input or recomendations.

    This 4 puck is suprisingly smooth, for a 4 puck clutch, and lasted me two years of traffic and some serious abuse (Some full throttle shifting at the track today with bfg drag radials is what finaly put it in its grave )

    Been looking around and haven't really found to much that peaked my interest, but thought I'd post up and see what others had to say.

    Thanks all

    Dude, my act clutch kicks ass. Never slipped yet. I have the act streetlite flywheel, and xtss clutch. Its the extreme pressure plate and the street disc. Its rated to 400 lb ft of torque. If you use simply use one of their puck discs it will handle 500 lb ft... with the extreme pressure plate.

    I've had a 6 puck before, not that one, but it didn't last as long as the 4 puck did.

    I know you made more power than I do now, but I use full throttle shift and beat on mine at the strip getting every last bit out of it.

    Do you think the 6 puck will take it???
    6 Pad clutch

    4 Pad

    Same torque capacity. The 4 pads are known to be quicker and harsher. I love how smooth the 6's are for street vs, the 4's. Having more surface area for grip will increase clutch life of the 6 pad vs the 4. In this case, more is good.
