Default MadDog Racing clutch

Mazda Miata 1990-93 1.6L clutch kit new #10710

Anyone ever tried one? The description says its an organic disc, but, if that picture is accurate, it sure resembles segmented kevlar. At $140 that would be a steal.

good luck: Clutch Products Catalog


Also FWIW: Best Buy is a retailer; GE is a brand. Best Buy sells GE refrigerators. Best Buy does not sell Best Buy refrigerators. Get it?

Yes, I know a the OEM is Pioneer...a google search of the part number brings it up. I've already contacted them, as well as 3 other distributors of the same clutch. All three have the same picture up which leads me to believe if it's not the kevlar lined disc, they, Pioneer, may at least make one.

same exact picture for the clutchmasters fx300 clutch:

Not sure what the best buy/ge crap is about...

FWIW: GE refrigerators aren't necessarily made by GE.

MadDog Racing is not a brand, its a retailer. the clutch kit they are selling is Pioneer.
It's not a MadDog Racing Clutch; MadDog Racing is selling a Pioneer Clutch Kit

I've never been on a shitty website they uses one product image for all products and/or completely wrong product images.

What's really crazy is this:

Mazda Miata B6 DOHC 1.6L 1990-93 engine kit


I didn't know our motors had two valve covers and eight cylinders.

Ha

Figured it was being rebranded as their own.

Whatever the case, is anyone familiar with their clutches? I was hoping CM's FX300 was a rebranded/reworked Pioneer, but that's most likely not the case.

Like the greddy kit. I challenge anyone to find a website selling the greddy kit for our cars that actually has a correct photo of the kit for our cars on it. Not gonna happen. One universal pic on every site.

Well, at least hopefully they have a picture to a greddy product. This looks like they stole clutchmasters picture
