So whats the consensus on fly wheel resurfacing when changing clutches?

A. Resurface always when changing?

B. Resurface only if the disc has damage?

Carbon fiber is what clutchnet was rating to 300ftlbs at the flywheel on their 6 puck sprung. I plan on making that much and that's when it was un-recommended. IMO the twin disk setup is the way to go (there's a reason they're on a lot of high powered cars). But compared to what I have, it's an expensive setup.

resurrection...dont mean to steal fame from sams ACT group buy, but i am still undecided between the two...ACT has more fanboys, Clutchnet is cheaper and seems to have more options...which way to go???
with ACT i would go with the xtss (possibly at 405 shipped) and with Clutchnet i would go with a 2X Red pp and a solid sprung disc now reduced in price and a throw-out bearing for like 275 shipped or maybe even less with a group buy...what does one do
i think ill order one and be the guinea pig...we have plenty of ACT user so far so we will be able to compare

the clutchnet product looks nice, but when I went to order from them their service was an atrocity. i ended up getting my clutch from FM, which I can say was a great transaction, and I have no regret for paying extra for the good service I got. Too bad all the rest of my purchases from them sucked.

I think I wrote this somewhere else, but my clutchnet disk is still holding up. I did a big clutch dump. lit up the drag radials all the way through second. It left me with the feeling that my transmission would go before the clutch did. I've got an ACT pressure plate with the cluchnet sprung hub and cerametallic friction material (not recommended for a dd).

If I'm buying one (I'll know for sure tomorrow night after I take mine apart) I'll follow you. I'll pm you as soon as I know.

BTW, thanks for the thread Dan.

This sounds really good to me. I was asking questions at the shop today. The one I installed is a ceramic one and I'm not happy with it. This will give me extra time to fool around with my current one.

Please keep me posted.

Hate to resurrect the thread (SEVEN DAYS OMG) but I went ahead and called Clutchnet. Unfortunately it was after the sales dept. left, but I spoke with a guy posessing an eastern european accent (Igor?).
Anyway, he recomended to me - several times I might add - the yellow PP and a yellow disk. I tried asking for a red 2x, or 3x but he kept smacking me down, telling me that the yellow pp + sprung would be far better, and would easily hold what I could throw at it. (mentioned destroying my stock clutch on 7psi, and plans for mid 200's)

Anyone have any TQ numbers for the combo or any guesses?

http://www.clutchnet.com/product.php?productid=9526

And anyone think I should stray from the organic?

why did he try to dissuade you from the red pps? I just installed a 2x pp and an organic clutch a couple days ago. I can't say how much it holds (still stock power) but the pedal pressure is only marginally heavier than stock. You forget the difference pretty quickly.

gompers, not sure why he would do that without knowing the full conversation, and being eastern european myself i understand how easily a point can get lost in translation. Stick with the red 2or3X, like brain says, tell him it's a track car.
Mid 200's, organic with mixed springs will be just fine, again, prolly hold more than you will ever throw at it. Just make sure you tell him you are from here as he will hook oyu up then. Also make sure you get a bonded disk, he'll know what you mean.

So a red 2x pp is what i'll go ahead and order.
Should I go 6puck with it? Or anyone else have a good disk recomendation?
Like should I do another red disk?

Yeah, he told me that a 3X Pressure plate, and a solid disk should hold 300ft/lbs. Drives like stock, but I had to shim the pressure plate.
