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).

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?
