Hey guys, I have a really shitty clutch that sucks to drive, on shutters in reverse, causes me to stall, wheel hops, and makes me look retarded when i drive.

YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GET IT! Youll save like $50.

with the amount of labor or $ in the labor to replace a clutch i would not go to cheap. sometimes you get what you pay for. I went ACT HD and have been happy with the feel and performance. I only have about 2000 miles on it but I drive it like a bat out of hell and it has held up well.

You hit the nail on the head with the amount of labor and possibly the cost of the install. I have seen to many cheap clutches give problems to ever trust using one in my car. The ACT HD is a good street clutch, I had one in my car for about 3 years and I believe now it is still in one of Savingtons track cars. The only reason that I now recommend the FM1 over the ACT HD is that it is a little cheaper, but holds a ton more torque.
