Question ne1 have experience with clutchmasters

I'm looking into different choices for clutches: ACT and clutchmasters. It seems like everyone talks about ACT but never clutchmasters. Does anyone have experience with their clutches on our cars? Good? Bad?

Thanks

I absolutely love the Clutchmasters clutch I have in my personal car. It is even better with the Unorthodox flywheel.

Anyone else out there have any comments? I searched and found a few posts about problems with the ACT clutch reliability (I think it was kartboy). Are there any other reliability issues associated with either of these two brands?

I know there was a group buy on clutchmasters clutches a while ago. How about those people who bought them?

Sorry to be so pushy, I just got a little worried when I saw the posts about the reliability of the ACT clutch.

Chris,

I'm also getting a lightweight flywheel put in with the clutch. Would you recommend a lightweight flywheel in stop and go traffic. I commute around DC and it gets a little congested. Just wondering if it gets too cumbersome after a while.

I had Clutchbastards clutch. Went through 3 of them and finally just swapped in an Exedy. Pieces of junk would fall apart on me within a month. My friend went through 5 of them and eventually went back to a stock Honda clutch. Stay away! Get a nicer clutch. Given the work to change it it's not worth it to save money on the part.

For those that had bad experiences with clutchmasters, did you give a good break in to the clutch before you drove it hard? I hear that performance clutches, especially, require a significant break in period (cobb tuning actually includes suggestions for break in with their ACTs).
