I'd be more afraid of what happens to the shift forks/ drum after a weekend of track days. A careful driver would never hurt them, but KWS's rider last year (Ben Thompson) could smash a set of shift forks to pieces in an afternoon of practice and qualifying. Every missed shift or careless down shift wears on the pads on the forks, and every over zealous shift in either direction wears the drum lugs off the forks, and beats the life out of the drums...
I'd be not so worried about the clutch itself as the clutch basket... modified engine with a really large load could make for breakage.

Come back to this old thread ...

Some days now i find a video to youtube and suprised with this Ikeya shifter kit.

I google it and finally find that is for rx7fd available.

This time i am running an Fc gearbox and i want to ask if this will fit to my gearbox. I am asking becouse they are very similar gearboxes.

Second is an other shifter kit that is called Stillway 0-400. Is for drag use but i can't understand if is a siquential shifter kit or just protect you from miss gears. the infos on net are week. So any infos and to that think ?
