Is that the ACT clutch that I sold to you back in 2010?

That pressure plate is from the $115 EXEDY KMZ03 OEM Replacement Clutch Kit

The disc is a Chinese made replica of the Exedy. That's it. No extra plate pressure, extra straps, heat treating, zip. Thus, folks with these clutches are slipping below 200whp. Exedy makes good quality stuff but this particular plate is their OEM replacement design. They do have higher capacity pressure plates but this one isn't it.
i've been saying this for years and no one listens to me, maybe now they will; as god has spoken?

the problem with the XTD and F1 Stage III and the reason they are so cheap is because it's utilizing a stock pressure plate. So you might get a nice 4 or 6-puck disc (F1 uses clutchnet), but you still have no extra clamping force.
