Default ClutchMasters Stage III Clutch

Well, I'm finally going to write a review of this, since I know that there
aren't many people using the ClutchMaster Stage III on turbo's here.

I purchased mine from Sean over @
http://www.challengerdeep.com . First
off the service was good and Sean did a good job communicating with me the
status of my order. He even followed up a few times with me to harass me about
when I was going to install it and what I thought..... Nice guy

I had a local shop do the install. Came out to a little less than $350 to
install. A little higher than I wanted to pay, but I know them and trust them
to work on my car. I dropped off the car in the morning and picked up in the
late afternoon.

The clutch itself is a Carbon Kevlar material and can hold some serious torque. I don't happen to have the full specs at this time..... It's not as strong as the ACT clutch in many ways.

You won't need a start working out with this clutch, unlike the ACT.... What you will need to do is to have a quick foot. There isn't much to the clutch, it's either in or out. You really need to stand on it when in gear to prevent rolling.....

Takes some getting used to. But it sure does grab (unlike the stock clutch) and really does a great job of transferring power from gear to gear. It's kind of scary, as I am just waiting for it to destroy second gear. I have done some street racing (minus the 5k dumps) with no problems. It really grabs and takes off. Very nice feeling. Really snaps into gear which can be surprising. Example is going from 1st to second around 5k rpms. You shift and the car seems to launch forward....

I haven't taken to the strip yet, but am looking forward to seeing what it can do. It's a nice clutch. Won't break your leg, but it's a little more e xpensive than the ACT.

I also used this clutch in my 99 Legacy with a specially made 9lb flywheel. I loved the clutch, grab was instant as said above. Car was seriously hard to "get going" though, but thats attributed to the flywheel.

Good clutch overall, but at $480 some dollars, it's alittle pricey.

I run Clutchmasters clutches exclusively.

Had a stage 4 on my civic for 2years, pulled it out to repair the tranny. Bought another to swap in just to do it since the tranny would be out. Mic'd it...same thinkness as the new one! Like 8 track days, 10 drag evens, street raced on it...I had it on with one of their alum flywheels. Their stuff is top notch.

I cant wait until they come out with one for the WRX.
