And yea im guessing the jump up to stage 5 PP would be pretty extreme given the torque ratings.

Given my recent situation, which ACT would you choose then? Im a man, this is a track car, but I dont want an aggravating clutch, and I want it to last.

I dont disagree with the sentiment, but I dont want to be your guinea pig for rotating components. Someone else can do that, it costs too much money.

but I will drive an auto miata before I ever put one into a daily driven car again

This. If I were looking for a FW, I would probably just do a lvl 1 happy meal and call it a day. I like my 10 lb F1 flywheel.

I see we are in two different worlds, lol.
Me - willing to pay anything for a clutch that doesn't make you look like a retard driving in traffic.
You - the least amount of money for the absolute highest tq rating. if $50 for 5000wtq, that's IDEAL



get the xtg6 then.

9-10lb flywheel is easy to drive with a stock or stock like clutch. Not sure what a stiff PP and puck clutch will be like. Cant say ive ever driven a car that I know for sure had a puck clutch. 1.8 FW on the craigslist right now for $30. On the way home from work too.
