Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
As far as the stage 1 and 2 I've read mostly bad reviews on them.
XTD® STAGE 4 CLUTCH KIT -ECLIPSE /TALON /LASER TURBO:eBay Motors (item 350270110118 end time Nov-24-09 19:36:07 PST) I have no complaints after 1500 miles of street use. The throw out bearing was steel sleeved so I just threw it away & used an OEM one. It chattered in stop & go L.A. traffic when it was new, but not so much after break- in. So far it's performing way better than the Fidanza 3.2 it replaced. http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/newbie-forum/240420-fidanza-clutch-thread-5.html#post151890981
Yep, same as the one in the link on ForceItIn's post.
That's what I have now, it's pretty decent. You have to remember the the OP has an awd, which will be a lot harder on a clutch than a fwd like you and I have.
Yeah I've heard that, but the people who have the xtd stage 4 ALL say that it's not that bad after break-in. Maybe the PP isn't as harsh idk?
Anyway next clutch change I do I'll be dropping an xtd stage 4 in.
I ran an xtd stage 4 in my galant vr4. The stage 4 comes with a different pressure plate, and an unsprung puck disk. I don't have any problems with an unsprung clutch in traffic. The clutch held 30+ psi from an hx40, without issue. People that expect stock engaugement on such a small clutch, holding 500ft/lbs, are going to keep burning up stock style disks, and pushing the crank out of the block with unneeded superheavy duty pressure plates.
If you do a search, you'll find they break and explode as much as the cheapies.
Yes it is. But, the stage 4 is a different presure plate. The pedal pressure is much heavier than stock with it.
Which is why people have been saying for years not to use a sprung puck disc. The stage 4 is unsprung.
