Wrong section. There is a group buy area.

I could hook it up with a group buy for clutchmaster, act, spec, or fidanza(although lots of fidanza are out of stock.) Just let me know if you guys want to setup any of those.

I don't mind doing group buys on things I don't manufacture. QTY is someone elses problem!

If I was in FMs shoes I wouldn't do it either...what are you thinking? Seriously.
To get a groupbuy with a reputabe company, you must show earnest. If you call me up and ask me to do a groupbuy as a favor to you, I will laugh at you (providing I was a shop and as busy as FM). Just ask for a discount, you'll have better luck.
Call up and say you have 10-20-30 or however many people ready to buy and ANYBODY is willing to deal.
I have dealt with FM, they are not hard to work with, i was very pleased with the outcome of my transactions.
We have a stage 2 in an 01 with roughly 250whp and it is flawless. I am only bummed about having an ACT disc come with it.

I did it in the proper manner. I called them/emailed them. They give you an option to sugggest a produict on there site. And also I don't think the right way is to get ppl intrested until you get approval from the vendor first to make sure they would even do it for you.

I passed the FM clutch group buy as I didn't have the cash either. If they had another one right now, there would be a FM Level 2 on order by me. I think when they had their group buy their Level 2 clutch was the Level 2 pressure plate with the ACT Xtreme disc.
