Clutch options

Post by dennis320 »

Hi,
I recently bought a FMSCd 2012MT and busy with the retuning the ecu at the moment. I bought the car mainly for track use but I do not want such a hardcore one. I will still use it sometimes daily and sometimes for holiday trips.
I am using 3.30 pulley now and my final target is around 250whp and the stock clutch is already slipping.

As GWR in most of different threads you mostly suggest users ACT Performance Stage One Clutch Kit but again they are mostly not tracking the car as they indicate.

So in my case I can not decide between this stage one kit and ACT HD 6-pad spring one. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these two for my purpose of use.

Thanks for the advices.

Not much difference between those two, the 6 puck will hold more power and take more abuse but the standard ACT unit should easily do 250 for years and years and be a bit more friendly in day to day use.

Yes, I used the stage 1 for autocross and track for years with about the same power level.
