Post Clutch talk.

From what I hear the ACT street clutch should hold 10lbs of boost and is a smooth ingaging clutch that you can feather if needed. This is what I'm looking for, I know what TMR's Impreza feels like and I believe he is running the Racing clutch. What other choices are there??

Minnam Racing sells the RPS turbo clutch for the Impreza. I have no experience with it, however, and I can't seem to find anyone who does.

I think I would be reluctant to get something without knowing anything about it! I think I will be going with the ACT street clutch still. .

I think I'm the only one around who pimps Clutchmaster's Stage-3. I had a Stage-4 puck type clutch that tore my transmission apart...I asked them to convert it to a Stage-3 while the tranny was under repair and they did it and overnighted it back for $120...excellent service. The kevlar stage-3 chatters a little in first gear, but feels smooth, almost like stock afterwards and has enough grip to hold power but not shock the drivetrain. I broke mine in by slipping it a lot. The service manager at the local Subaru Dealership (West Houston) took it for a spin and loved it. Trey Cobb commented that it almost felt stock.

There's my info. Do with it what you will.

There is the Excedy Clutch from the HKS turbo RS. But there is scant data on it...

I just recently drove Kartboys RS and he has the ACT clutch and pressure plate. This is what I can say about it:

It takes more pressure, try twice more, to push the clutch pedal to the floor. In other words it feels like a real clutch. After I got back in my own RS, the clutch felt like the gas pedal.

Engagement was smooth and precise. It did not have the "on" "off" effect of a 3 or 4 puc plate. Feathering was really nice. No shudder or slip.

I like it! The difference between the stock clutch and the ACT is like night and day.

Ok, I have to go now and collect my money from ACT for this review.....oops! Forget I said that.....
