    F1 Racing is an Ebay clutch, there are ok for stock use ONLY! I'm selling one for a b series, I've had good luck with them on stock motors, not built or slightly built ones

    nice I'm very worried with having a built b18 that I will just break it. I've read other forms and it's 50/50 on it. just want to get ur guys opinion. to make sure it will be good. also was looking at the exedy oe clutch with fidanza flywheel. is it pretty good?

    I have used this setup and so has a few of my friends. They work great for close to stock setup, If you are going to have more than 200 hp.. use ACT

    i have tracked an exedy clutch with no issues. either them or ACT. nothing else. if there is one part of my car i DON"T want to risk, it's the clutch. it's about the only thing that can fuck up the entire drivetrain. engine, clutch, tranny, axles, etc can possibly get destroyed if the clutch goes bad.
