Go with a Valeo OEM cobra clutch if you want am upgrade.
A stage 3 will kill your legs on a DD.

Don't get a clutch that has individual pucks for a dd. Get something one piece or it will chatter driving around town

My stage 3 is hard at first then gets easier as it goes down. Just make sure you get a firewall adjuster and cable with it.

My Valeo cobra replacement is actually softer than my old clutch was. I changed the clutch cable and shortened the clutch travel because it was actually too soft for my liking.
Condolences on your injuries from a fellow biker; I had my wreck 3 years ago but got lucky.

In all actuality with the severeness of my accident I did "get lucky". Even though it cost me the ability to run, stay skinny and ultimately my military career...I was "lucky"

Back pressure, check out that hydraulic clutch cable system on AM and let me know what you think about it. If it will let me keep my manual trams and not kill my legs it's worth it!

I'm gonna be honest, I don't know sh*t about hydraulic clutches. The only thing I could think of is that it *should* have less friction than a cable setup.

Hydraulic clutches are like pushing your brake pedal nice and easy. New Mustangs come standard with them.

Will look better in the car though as soon as my bills are caught up. On the bright side I'm getting 1200 worth of parts for 300$
