    Go stock clutch with a lightweight flywheel. It's not worth running the 6 puck if you don't need the extra holding power, IMO.

          yeah there is, I know dannsc2racer is running it. when we were working with the nitrous on his car it was grabbing great with back to back pulls of the 75 shot.

              I run the ACT street disc. Works great, and it holds real well. Don't let anyone else drive your car though, including the tire shop guys, as they will drop it like crazy with the lightened flywheel.

                got a link as to where you bought it and a price? how much stiffer is it than stock?

                  If I was running just n/a I would go with just the act street disc, should be more than enough.

                        i got that its not worth is if i dont have that kind of power but the 4 puck is cheaper than the street disc so can someone tell me the disadvantage to running it....

                          chances are its unsprung so it's harsher engaugement

                          its only got 4 contact points so it should hold power fine but don't expect long or even decent life out of it

                          if the clamping is too hard don't be suprised if it causes crank walk, I wouldn't be suprised if the 6 puck already does that to an extent

                          in short, it's too strong of a clutch for your application. I'd use the street disc for anything short of 300whp if not around that, I was impressed with how strong it held and how streetable it was.

                            ok thanks that the answer i was looking for .....so i should get decent life out of the street disc correct?

                              another reason why not to get the 6 or 4 puck is, they will chatter like a mofo. so for most people they cant stand that.

                              now clutch feel, to me, with the act pressure plate feels very resonable. its not stiff, but its not soft. it has a very very good responsive feel. once again, to me, getting use to the feel takes nothing. if you go with an aluminum flywheel, it doesnt change engagement feel unless your not good with a clutch or gas pedal. the flywheel helps revs out, but can cut down on your mid to high end. i found that out pulling hills at 75-80mph in west virginia.

                              but driving on an act/aluminum flywheel isnt like what most say. hell when i first drove on my aluminum flywheel and i didnt notice any changes taking off (i.e over revving) but noticed a quicker rev. then my first time driving an act 6-puck i was in joes car and that was easier then messing with the stock clutch. although his stock shifter we put in it SUCKED!
