    first off, not sure if this belongs elsewhere. Feel free to move if needed.

    This is probably a really basic question, but I'm just trying to learn so please don't flame me too hard!

    I found a potential swap, the issue is that it comes with a 6 puck clutch and I was wondering what kind of issues I would run into using a 6 puck for everyday street driving. I would assume that a 6 puck has a really harsh engagement, but I'm pretty clueless after that.

    Can you please give me some pointers here.

    Thanks

    it will grab very hard making traffic and hills a bitch
    it can cause added stress on the tranny if you are doing a lot of hard starts

    Are there any downfalls as far as longevity is concerned?

    Does a 6 puck cause any extra wear or have any other downfalls other than drivability in stop and go situations?

    it will wear the flywheel faster .... its generally a metalic substance as opposed to an organic substance
    kinda like metalic brake pads wear rotors faster
