I put 30-40 miles on my 1.6 3x pp with 6 puck. Its suprisingly tame! The pp engages near the floor but it only took me an hour to get used to (I have been driving a 6 puck for 1 yr on stock pp though).

sadly mine doesn't seem to hold the power like I expected... gave it a goose for the first time today (500 mile break in) and it felt like it was slipping. should have gone with more PP :(

I think you have a 2x.

I am looking for something to deal with 12psi on a gt2560.
The stock clutch just spins when I go above 8psi or when I screw up a fast shift. I guess a heavy pedal will help with that.

Do I go with the 3x or is a XT a safer bet?

Wait, are you ******* kidding me? How much power are you making? I got the 2x as well because I was told it would hold 300wtq.

On a side note I still haven't gotten a clutch tool as promised.

hmm.. which model is that one? the pressure plate looks really similar to one i got off ebay.


Arkmage: is your clutch system refreshed? i.e. fluids changed, slave in good condition?

how many times do i have to repeat that the ebay stuff is usually rebranded clutchnet stuff? however, the ebay kits typically only get you an OEM replacement type PP and a good disc.

Well; I sold out today and paid for an ACT XTSS (and it shipped!)

Not as good as Mike's deal, but hopefully I only have to do this one time.

Does anyone know how much ground clearance is needed to pull out a transmission?

It seems to be holding only slightly better at 8psi then my stock clutch did... I should have gone with the 3X. It's also possible that I am getting tire spin and just can't hear it over the turbo music.
