Recommended Posts


when i went to pick my car up ,i found that it literally had no clucth (after he said there was nothing wrong with the car)

so anyway i managed to get him to fit a free new one , its a ADL blueprint one ,when i looked at the reciept it was like £220 or something .It works and is nice and light

unless you've made big gains in torque the engine is putting out is there any need for an uprated clutch? i would recommend going for a normal LUK to keep the best balance between performance and everyday driveablility i've read posts where performance clutches aren't the most pleasant to use in daily driving?

I did over 100 pod runs last year, there is no way I'm going standard. Will be going for a light weight flywheel too.

I rarely drive my t sport in heavy traffic so I'd be happy with a more performance based set up.

Does any one on here have a performance clutch that could point me in the right direction??

ouch. ceramic would be better for the ammount of runs you do at the pod as the can take more heat without slipping but the do wear quicker with normal driving and you may get some judder on engagement :thumbsup:

organic ones are best for normal road use they tend not to like lots of harsh acceleration and slipping ie drag starting as they cant handle the heat aswell as ceramic :thumbsup: there both good just different applications

where did you get the exedy clutch from? you got a link? sounds like a good set up?

does it come with normal organic plate and release bearing?

The company I purchased it from is no longer going, which is a shame but you can buy straight from Exedy uk I believe,it does come with a release bearing in the kit.

I got my flywheel from Fensport, Tony there is a good man :thumbsup:

Exedy Stage 1 from my experience in different cars are a good mix for performance and daily, it maintains pretty much most of the daily drive characteristics of being light enough for traffic and the added benefit of being able to take more abuse. One thing to think about though is that if you get such an agressive clutch set up you might run the risk of there being no give what so ever when engaged, i.e a drag run where to pop the clutch and those ponies from the engine might go finding another weak spot in the drive train.. and this could be either stripping your gears or bending a drive shaft.. something to keep in mind when choosing your next clutch.. the suggested Exedy Stage 1 with lightened flywheel will give you good throttle response and the amount of "give" to keep a standard drive train happy with ability to take some more abuse, but as mentioned before you may experience a shorter clutch life..

Hope my little 2p worth helps you make your decision :thumbsup:
