Would love to try these other clutches that all of ya's are talkin bout. I've got an ED XR6 (clutches are already heavy duty) and then a ceramic clutch was put in. Thing is awesome no slipping at all, but I get so tired in peak hour traffic as its not very nice to use...loll

Depends where you go. I just fitted a EF flywheel to my 250 crosflow so I could use a 10" clutch. Used a STD HD pressure plate, and an RPM 5 puck cushioned brass button. So far, very light pedal feel, only driven it once, but drives like a normal clutch... But I believe it still needs bedding in, because it started slipping in top cog when I gave it a bootfull.
Cost me $50 to have the surface milled and bolt holes opened up to suit crossflow. Can cost anywhere from $50 to $70 in my country hick town... :roll:
Clutch plate cost me $224 + GST

Interesting topic, im not in line for a new clutch just yet, i just blew my last one about feb 2005, i just have a PBR clutch kit from repco, back in the days where modding my car wasnt even thought about.

I find i have a little slip when taking off, and when dragging / heavy take off's you launch then the whole car bogs down and almost launches you thru the windscreen. Is that clutch or breathing problem?

$tree fiddy for the clutch kit, thats pretty cheap, i bought my PBR one for about $260 and that was about $200 off...

And, driving in peak hour is horrid, my clutch leg gets worn out like a mofo cause its so heavy, i like that but its a pain.
