2X PP- 175.00
6 puck spring disk-145.00

=320.00

Then add in the throwout bearing, pilot bearing, alignment tool add shipping= more than 35.00

355.00 is still a deal. Considering he has the same kit online for 385.00, not including the shipping.

yellow RED 2X

but it looks like the prices on the website have dropped since the GB started....


I simply placed my orders on the site, 6-puck for 157 shipped, then 2x PP for $185 shipped.

so 342 shipped.....

Thank you Ben! Someone figured out what I was trying to say! Sorry my poor communication skilz don't kilz.

Everybody seems to be buying the 6 puck now. Any opinions on feel and engagement of it? My car's a daily driver. Don't want too harsh of engagement. Do track the car and will hit the drags a few times. I was thinking of going with the heavier duty organic disc. Mistake?

You can get used to pucked discs pretty quickly, you just loose the ability to slip the clutch as you engage it. So the heavier the PP and a pucked disc, it becomes harder in traffic as the thing grabs instantly....I stalled the first car i drove with a clutchnet 3x and 6-puck....i didn't stall the same car with a 6-puck and yellow level PP.

2x red and 6 puck sound more streetable? Organic disc OK for occasional track duty?

Gaaaah. The online prices seem to change all the time. Today the PP is $245. Calling them to see if they will honor yesterday's $175.

Well this sucks.

They charged my card $375 for the 1.6 6-puck and 2x pp. GB price was supposed to be $325.

Whoever answered the phone when I called told me that only Igor can sort it out, and he's not in.

Pricing on the website keeps changing. They want an extra $50 for the bonded organic disc. What's the difference between the green and yellow rated organic disc then if it isn't the bonding?

Red 2x was $175 yesterday, $245 today. Red 3x was $225 yesterday, $245 today. It's like playing the stock market trying to figure out when it's bottomed out and when to jump in.

Regardless of the shady pricing, is everyone confident that it's high quality? I don't care about saving the $100 off ACT extreme if the quality isn't there. Any opinions?

I like mine. I'd just go by the prices I posted in the beginning of the thread and CALL HIM.

Brain, With a name like Igor that would be Vodka, and lot's of it!

I loved when I called and Igor answers, tells me to hold for a salesman, 5 seconds later he's back on the phone. I think it was to take another hit of Stoli.

Clutch arrived yesterday w/ alignment tool and bearing. Looks stout.

Igor got my refund sorted out and it only took two days to post to my account.

I'm a happy camper.

I have the 2X and 6 puck spring disk, 1st gear engagement is instant. Like Brain mentioned earlier, give it gas and let it out. Otherwise, it will s-h-u-t-t-e-r. However, pedal feel is not bad at all. A tad more than stock. I am very pleased with it thus far.
