I was running one in my EL XR8. Cushion button job. It handled NA power ok, but slipped like a b**ch with the nitrous.

got a Performance Heavy Duty in my EB. been awesome so far. slipping is caused by when they wear and no one adjusts them to take up the wear. or they are just plain worn out and f**k

My clutch just gave up, so I'm getting a rpm clutch just to get me through, I don't think theres any point buying a exedy clutch just yet.

Mine was virtually brand new. Adjusted correctly. It would've slipped because it had near on 300rwkw on the bottle.

WTF, mate? You have some form of superiority complex? Don't talk down to me like I'm an idiot. I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty sure I have my specs in my sig. Surely that might fill in some blanks...

The organic plate won't take too much punishment. How much power are you looking at making? Or what combo will you be running?

Im in the market for a new clutch too, been running a standard exedy and its been in there about 6 months, crap in my opinion. was going to go with a HD exedy. from what i have read they sound ok.
You guys will know though, do they take a beating? i.e skids flat changes etc, im quite hard on my car... What would be the best. N/A 6 with the usual mods.

My Exedy HD cops a right flogging. N/A V8. Skids, Drags, etc, it cops the lot.
