Which clutch to get, SPEC, Macleod, etc?
And I was wondering about which would be better, steel or an aluminum flywheel also?

If you want the biggest and baddest, the mcleod twin disk is the winner. Broke a driveshaft and a diff since installing this clutch.

Whatever clutch you get, make sure you get an adjustible master cyl (I got mine from mcleod).

how much power are you making to cause that much damage? <img src="images/icons/confused.gif" border="0">

McLeod is the only thing I have used but think it really seems to be holding up very well after a lotta 1.5 60 foot launches and 13k+ abusive miles on it so far.

I am using the steel flywheel and single kevlar disk along with the adj master cylinder.

Thanks for the info!

I am kind of leaning towards SPEC or Maclaod kits Macleod. But which one has a better feel to it?
