Default Clutch/flywheel options for Stage 4+ WRX?

My Stage4+TMIC setup car is finally overtaking the stock clutch at 53k miles :P I am looking into getting a clutch/flywheel replacement, but wonder what setups people are using with Stage 4+ cars? (and yes...I did searches...)

I was leaning towards ACT at first because I used them in my modded DSMs and they worked well. But a few people said the Exedy clutches are the way to go.

I do NOT want a puck clutch, or a super race clutch...nothing that will completely lunch the tranny.

Right now the Exedy sport clutch and Exedy lightweight flywheel are top on my list, and seems like a safe way to go. Any Stage 4 guys have this clutch? Experience is very welcome :P

Thanks,

Kev

I'm just curious, what problem do you have with the stock clutch? If it held up for 53K miles on your stage 4+, I think that's pretty damn good.

Jim (PlatinumWRX) from Clubwrx.net blew up his tranny when he put an ACT clutch kit in his car. More clamping force = more drivetrain shock.

For your power level, the stock clutch is more than adequate, IMO and in the opinion of Sport Compact Car.

The ACT abslutely will not blow the tranny up as suggested above. When it comes to clutches with sprung hubs and full radius disks, the driver blows the trann, not the clutch.

That's very true... but a grabbier clutch will make it easier to transmit the shock to the drivetrain.

If you don't have a problem with the stock clutch, there is no reason to change it.

While I agree, I would not consider the ACT grabbier at all......its as easy to drive smoothly as a stock clutch is, just has harder pedal pressure. But I do certainly hear what you are saying, which is the very reason not to do a solid hub disk on anything but a full on race car
