i have a sohc Y7 in my crx si, turbo'd. i had a centeforce stage II and then i swapped it out with a centerforce duelfriction.... i've been beating the shit out of it for a good year and a half now and its starting to slip A Lot. i race it about every other day so i need something that will hold up... i've been looking for a 6puck (SPRUNG)... clutchnet.com, clutchmasters, or maybe and act (but they're kinda price-e for me)... any one have any ideas or coments?

oh, i forgot to post it up, but i'm putting down 168hp and 163tq right now and am planning on a few things that'll get me right around the 200 mark...

If it's a daily driven vehicle and you have to drive in traffic, then I would suggest staying away from a puck clutch....I've never driven one myself, but know a few people with them (various vehicles) and puck clutches are not particularly street friendly. I myself am looking at clutches and hope to get one that will hold well above 200 hp, but will have to be a full face organic disk, just for drivability. But that's my thoughts on it...take it or leave it.

i just ordered my clutch today for my turbo setup. its a Centerforce stage 2. not a puck style, its still a disk and will support 60% more power. so thats like around 200+, i should be below that so im not worried. i picked it up new for $202 shipped, but i got a discount on it

why isnt exedy on that list? lol...anyways, i agree with everyone here so far and say go full organic! yeeesss...no need for a puck, disc is fine...stage 2 is good, stage 1 works fine too...all depends what kind of feel you want...im running a full organic street disc with heavy duty pressure plate very smooth...i think im going to change it tho...but yeah back to topic...DISC, FULL ORGANIC, HEAVY DUTY P.PLATE nuff said...lol

see i had the stage 2 centerforce and then swapped it out for the duel friction on and it slipping now (a year and a 1/2 later) i looked into the excedy route, but i'm no sure... i'm hoping to be putting down right around 200 at the wheels pertty soon, but not untill i get a new clutch. as far as a DD, i have a 97 civic hx that i'm going to be driving daily now. im gonna bring out the rex on my days off for some fun... if you know what i mean! :fruit:

i want something more race-ish... i called up clutchnet.com and them have a 6puck (sprung) kit for $345 shipped to my door, it's said to hold 300-390hp.

how did you like the stage 2 centerforce while you had it?
it wasn't bad at all. i like centerforce because of the soft clutch pedal. they are pretty good clutches, but they wear out fast.

I went with Competition Clutch for my new setup. The company is owned by a former ClutchMasters employee. Their clutches are damn near identical to ClutchMasters and they are a little bit cheaper.

i have the clutch(masters)faggots 6 puck unsprung, not bad daily driven at all.
ps i hate clutch masters they send me a bend disc and said there was no way that could have happened.
i would go for the clutchnet i have put 2 of their organics in my freinds cars and they are hold up great:beer:

i guess a year and a 1/2 isn't really that bad if you really think about it...

i wish i had the money to change it with this paycheck, but i cant, i have to make my house payment, my insurance, and pay my dad the $400 i got from him to ghet my new apt here in chicago.... it's all good. i'm leaning more towards the clutchnet. i had a few buddys down south running them and really like them, plus NastyHabitzCRX saying that he's installed a few and they aren't to shabby. that helps me towards my choice a little bit. unless act starts making a sprung 6puck for around $350 shipped then i may go that route ;-)

if you have a friend with a presicion lathe have them spin it up on it to make sure it aint bent. my 6 puck wasnt easy to see, but on the lathe it was obvious. :beer:
