Re: perf clutch

Also very grippy depending on the brand. Mine is very On/Off....there will be no slipping of the clutch here. Which clutch do you have? We can probably tell you better how your particular model works.

Re: perf clutch

It might be some sort of stage 2 clutch. Get under the car and look at it though the void in the bell housing.

Re: perf clutch

with a really stiff clutch that engages hard you will lose all ability to ride the clutch aka dumping it only .... so on the street it may slow your car down lol.

Re: perf clutch

I have a SPEC Stage 1 on the '90, and it is pretty damn stiff. Like everbody else said, there's really no slipping the clutch with it. The distance between the clutch being fully engaged and being fully disengaged is very small. It's also pretty damn stiff. I'd hate to be stuck in traffic with it.

See, my spec stage 3 is quite light. It is very on/off, but it is a ton lighter than the stock clutch. Granted, the stock 03/04 clutch was very heavy....sucked in traffic.

Re: perf clutch

mine requires a good bit of engine revs to engage it smoothly, if I try to just slip it and engage it'll either bog, hop, or stall..

centerforce dual friction...
