Default ChutchNet group buy....

I thank Sam for trying to hook us up with a clutch deal through Carolina Clutch, to bad it went south. I was uneasy knowing that after the deal was almost set up the base prices we supposed to get 10% off of went up That left a bad taste in my mouth so I researched other manufacturers and came up with ClutchNet.

Still needing a clutch for my car I called Clutch and spoke to Igor, great guy. Really wanted to get me the right clutch combo for my car. I ended up having him build me a costume setup. I cant wait to get it. While I was on the phone with him I discussed a group buy for TurboMiata. He is all about it! I'm going to get back to him tonight and see what I can work out for us.

I'll let you know....

I'm a little ashamed to say I might be in too. Since I'm re-using the Spec for the time being, I won't be needing a new clutch until springtime... but might be pursuaded to go in early for the right deal.

Something with mild pedal effort (not a puck) to hold 250ftlbs is the ticket.

Clutchnet is my favorite clutch company by far. We all run them in our boosted Vr6's. I ran one in my Miata as well. I had the red pressure plate and pedal effort was still like stock. I would recommend the Carbon/Carbon disc. Super streetable and will still hold the power.

What's the url? I tried going to www.clutchnet.com and all I get is an "under construction" page. Although, I can tell I've been to the site before because there are other links to the same site (which are broken right now) in my browser history.

In any case, I'm looking to see if they have something organic/full sprung disc with whatever PP it takes to hold 200+ ft/lbs.

OOO, I'm definately in. I think i'd like the red x2 pressure plate with a disc taht would be capable of holding 250+ whp but no more than 300. Don't want a puck disc also.

The Carbon or Kevlar sprung hub discs are what you want.

I have the kevlar sprung hub and 2X PP in my Gti. Should hold 425 whp and 400 wtq easily while being cake to drive in stop and go.

Count me in on the GB for the clutch set too. I am not sure which one I will need for a 200+ hp JRSC 1.6l car and Torsen II rear. I already broke the 1.6 LSD. So I figure the clutch will probably be the next to go.

What do you guys think they'd charge for a pressure plate? I can get a deal on an ACT street disc...
