sorry for the offtopic but what do you think about clucth net clutches?

Pressure plate:

Clutch (solid hub):
http://clutchnet.com/product.php?pro...8&cat=0&page=1

Clutch (sprung hub):
http://clutchnet.com/product.php?pro...1&cat=0&page=1

What is the advantage of the sprung hub over the solid one or the other way around?

he was boost spiking on the dyno and his clutch was slipping...still, even with the spikes he should have been under the tq rating for it.

Spring disks reduce the shock to the drivetrain, and thus reduce damage to the tranny and diff. At least that's the theory.

i think I'm just going to do the xtreme with a street disc from ACT because we know it will work right, although pedal feel is ****.

I'm still tempted to do the clutchnet combo with a "red" plate and sprung disk.

why would I go with a clutch disk like this
http://www.clutchnet.com/product.php...1&cat=0&page=1

or
http://www.clutchnet.com/product.php...5&cat=0&page=1

over this disc?
http://www.clutchnet.com/product.php...1&cat=0&page=1

i don't understand why the "puck style" disk will hold more, or which one will last longer. I think I will go with the 2x pressure plate just because that's added grip insurance right?

thanks for the advice.
