Stage 3 Clutch

My '99 Prelude supposedly has a stage 3 clutch (previous owner did quite a few mods, and I know nothing about mods.)

So what exactly is a stage 3 clutch? I heard it's bad for daily driving, is this true?

Re: Stage 3 Clutch

it depends on your driving style, do you like a stiff clutch that grabs hard and has virtually no slip point in it?

Re: Stage 3 Clutch

yea it just lets out real quick...if ur not use to it then u will buck the car like crazy....lol i have a stage 2 Spec clutch and it grabs HARD...lol..... if anybody drives it and they are not use to it they either stall out or buck the sh*t out of it....i personally love it i can shift so quick and it takes the abuse of high rpm launches.....i swear it made my car faster

but for daily driving its fine...it will last longer than OEM clutch IMO....it just will tire your leg out in stop and go traffic....gives u a work out lol.....

Re: Stage 3 Clutch

what other mods does your car have? Stage 3 is generally reserved for LOTS of HPs. Most people don't want to spend the money on a stage 3 unless they need it or it is a cheap one. Is it a pain to depress the pedal?
