Bag on it from the start and then post on the internet what a piece of **** it is

When I broke mine in I just avoided drag launches. I was only a little way into the break in procedure when I did a track day, but that's not too hard on the clutch I don't think. Seems to be holding fine.

Does the kevlar only start to glaze if you abuse it like dump hard on it? or will it heat up and slip between shifts?

yeah here is what my junx looks like:

Mine only glazed on drag launches at a prepped strip. It bounced back when it cooled down. I never had it slip on day to day spirited high boost driving.

sounds fine to me, even with the 7" rear I doubt I'll ever dump the clutch.

My spec disc was originally kevlar pads and they wore out in 5k miles. That organic puck disc looks like the thing hustler had grenade in his vw- it's got the friction pad ring riveted to a disc, which is then riveted to the hub center. Lots of rivets.
