Default Ebay Clutch's

Well i know you have to be careful when buyin car parts from ebay!! Sometimes you are paying for **** but there are occassions where you are just paying for the name! A prime example are the HKS SSQV style BOV, exactly the same as the original HKS without the sticker!!

Anyways i am just wondering what clutches from ebay are like?

i was thinking about buying this or something similar:

i did get a CAP Clutch for my glanza and they only retail at $200 and it was absolutely fantastic, handled the power really well, they do one for a miata but its handling capabilities arent good enough for my plans.

thanks

I dunno what those pressure plates mated to a regular clutch would be like, but I know that the ACT heavy duty "kits" are just an ACT pressure plate with a stock exedy replacement.

Edit: I mean if you're opposed to the puck design, of course.

+1 on the xtd 6 puck...I had it on my escort running 12psi for about 10k miles with no problems and then swapped it onto the miata now running about the same.
