Right now im running 10psi on the stock clutch and interestingly enough it holds in any gear to redline, unless I misshift into fifth and floor it.
I feel like i miss 3rd every ******* time. I pisses me off. I probably need motor mounts.

I'm curious about this too, because I just got an ACT HD w/6 puck sprung disk and it comes with both a Throw out (ACT brand) and a pilot bearing (NSK brand). Are these ok to use?
