You will soon find out. I was tempted to buy the one I think you are talking about but opted for the Exedy instead. Let us know how it is.

Re: need info bout clutch i bought

I think I know which one your talking about - it's the F1 Racing stage 1 clutch correct? If so I am rocking one right now as well as 4 of my friends from auto school, and none of us have problems, works perfect and I honestly love the way it feels and works

I got mine with the 11.5 lb. flywheel option too and I think I payed like $210 for everything

I like dat.. its true.
Some people tend to get lucky,but from searching in the past..i saw that the only people that had good luck with those clutch kits ,were the ones that bought stage 3 kits.

you guys need to learn not to buy stuff made in china. You realize you are taking money away from the innovators of this industry right? Do you really want ebay parts to take over?

Re: need info bout clutch i bought

Well as someone who has to pay for college, pay gas, insurance, car repairs and bills of all the other nature while only being able to work part time but STILL working full time just to keep money in my pocket - these are perfect because it is not as expensive and STILL gets the job done. Will I be using this brand when I build my engine? No - I will be going with a much better brand, but when my clutch failed and I had very little cash this is the most simple solution to the problem

Sorry we cant all do things your way - but im sure you understand

the situation is a bit different here. I'm mostly talking about people just looking to upgrade their engine with parts that are copies of the real thing. Most of you probably dont even realize that the big people in this industry that design headers, cams, intake manifolds...etc are all afraid to release newest designs to the public because they know it will be copied, manufactured in china and sold for cheaper and most people just looking on ebay will see it and buy it thus the original company loses a **** load of money and falls under. Just like Greddy Japan. Go look on ebay and see how many copies of the DC sports header you can find. I bet there is more than 10 copies.
I could go on and on about it, but in reality people arent going to listen to me and are going to buy the cheaper copy. And it is what plagues this industry.

Don't worry - I completely agree with you - but from where I am coming from in a situation where you have little money and need to get your daily driver back on the road with something, you take the easiest way out, that's where these cheap a$$ companies come in, they make the same thing with cheaper materials for less money - but that does not mean that I am gonna go onto eBay and buy the stage 3 F1 Racing clutch kit for my 600+ whp car and take it to the drag strip, I wouldn't trust that crap to handle anything over stock. It's also an easy way to spot the "ricers" and people who buy these cheap, crap parts just so they can say they have "mods" to their car, or to make their P.O.S. neon, civic, etc... stand out in a crowd when in reality it shouldn't.

Unfortunately it all boils down to preference and situation, and there is nothing that can be done to prevent it from happening, which will eventually be the downfall of the aftermarket industry

i agree with both of ya'll don't think that my clutch is gonna stay like that forever ,but it like this. i mean i get paid every month because i work as a workstudy for the library. and get paid sh*ty five or six hundred dollar checks and i to have stuff to pay. i mean i wish i could go and spend all the money on a clutch. but im gonna have to save for like at least two months or something like that. it sux having bills pile up .
