Talk to NPC, Nicks Performance Clutches, up here in QLD they are great. Wont sell you a s**t clutch he will probably do a custom one that will only set you back about $300. The one he did for my last setup was sweet, it had more clamping force (1500Psi) than those dogs balls off the shelf jobs that break firewalls, with less pedal pressure than the factory standard XR clutch. Definately worth the hassle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok i have an update...
yesterday i noticed i had alot of movement in the gear shift when i give it a bit..
turns out i had 2 broken engine mounts...
and i assume because my clutch cable is cable tied to the k frame when the engine gets revved it lifts up and im thinking it was pulling on the cable holding the clutch on...

since ive replaced the engine mounts it hasnt done it..
so ill see how it goes. hopefully there is no need for a new clutch after all.....

+ 1. I have used NPC for the clutches in my drift car, and my fourby, and the EB will be getting one soon. Excellent custom clutches at low low prices FTMFW

well here is an updated update!!!

the problem has returned yet again..
since ive supercharged the car i had a couple of issues with breaking engine mounts, but this has been permanantly fixed..
but as of a few weeks ago it has started doing it again. :evil: :evil:
its very frustrating when you do a big launch go to change gear and the pedal stays on the floor and the engine bounces the limiter quite hard untill you freak out and release the throttle,
then the clutch pedal snaps back sometimes hitting my foot on its way out.. :evil:

Go on Boosted and speak to OED666 about a BA Mk1 Flywheel and ACE Option 2/3 Clutch, all your Clutch Drama's will be solved for good until you wear it out.

hmm ba flywheel hey??
i didnt think there was much difference in them??

anyway i found a el 6 bolt flywheel tonight so its a start...
and while the 3 bolt ea flywheel has done its job (except for the recent issue)
but has started to randomly slip a little on lazy gear changes under hard throttle under boost..
