    no need for anything over the OEM clutch if you didn't do anything major to add horsepowers.

    Unless you are just looking to drop the clutch at 3 or 4k to do burnouts or something

    ACT equals broken tranny... There are the best and they will tell you that they will break your tranny if you abuse them. go on ebay and order a exedy clutch and fidanza flywheel. cost about 280 for the kit, one of the best and cheapest clutch kit for a near stock kit...and wont break your tranny

    ACT clutches don't break trannys... bad drivers break trannys.

    You can break a tranny with a stock clutch if you wanted to. Trust me i've done it lol

    yes true but if you call ACT and ask them they will tell you personally that they will break them. I have already talked to them bout it. my first one i ordered broke my trans the first time i tried racing.. and im not a bad driver.. i have won over 500 street races due to better driving skills, and ive raced plenty of cars that should of beaten me...

    weird but ok. just my opinion.. good to hear yours has lasted that long, too bad mine didn't.. E i bet your left leg is twice the size of your right one.. I know the ACT is a stiff ass clutch..lol not good for sitting in traffic

    ACT makes different stages of clutches, from almost stock to almost undriveable

    :concur:

    im running the AI4-XTSS kit
    the pedal is stiff and definitely takes some getting use to... but its not that bad in traffic once you learn how to drive it... i dont sit with the clutch depressed anyway... its bad for the throwout bearing

    I'd just go w/a Exedy OEM replacement.

    hondafreak - thats cool you've own 500 street races... not. ACT clutches dont break transmissions, idiot drivers do. Couple super high horsepower 600 whp+ local cars use ACT clutches without a single issue. Except wearing out from slipping the clutch for traction.

    i have ACT clutch and flywheel, no problems here. the HD pressure plate is a little tough and sometimes i get light chatter when dragging the clutch on a slow start in traffic. I feel this is acceptable considering the power it has to hold.

    Another ACT clutch user who's had it for YEARS without any issues.

    This is Road Race abuse with a very aggressive clutch type LSD. My tranny is not broken.. lol

    No, they didnt. I knew the name looked familiar. your the same kid asking which head is better so you can look smarter in front of your brother. it all makes sense now.

    I'm still laughing over you saying "ive won over 500 street races"... like its a monumental task or something.

    You know whats gayer than claiming youve won over 500 races? Claiming that youve kept count of that many races. For 2 reasons.

    1. Street racing is for punk retards tryin to prove somethin to no one.
    2. Running 500 "street races" would make you the biggest punk retard Ive ever seen.
