oh yeaaaaahhhhh...heehe...you'll feel it. I have the stage 3 kevlar clutchmasters. You have to break it in for 500 miles on the kevlar before you race it. BUT THE DIFFERENCE: It grips hard and fast and doesn't slip even if you tried! Racing clutches can handle more torque than the stock clutch and can take more abuse...they'll last longer if you race your celica or drive it hard on the street. Since racing clutches don't really slip, they can be tricky to learn how to use, and sometimes funky to use on the street in traffic. Just make sure the car in front of you moves at least 30 feet before you engage your clutch so you don't run him/her over. grin It's like an on/off switch: either you're not moving, or BAM you're gone!!!

For Drag Racing: If you're the type that likes to drop your clutch on the launch, instead of feathering it...you'll love a brand new race clutch. Of course like any clutch, the more you have worn it, the more it will tend to slip. But if you drive it right on the street, you can make it last a long time...it just takes skill and practice...you have to rev match perfectly otherwise you'll feel it on a clutch that hardly slips.

yeah, and if you don't have the mods to provide the torque that would require a full race clutch you'll annihilate your eninge main bearings from what I hear too.

Racing clutch's is fun...(^_^) it is on/off switch (said earlier) Single plate racing clutch is not that bad.. it could be really tricky but 15 min and you will get it. It makes driving stock clutch car seem really easy.

If your car's daily driver tho, I dont recommend twin plate clutch like I got.. It will pretty much rape you left/right until you get used to it... but half clutching becomes more effective so idunno
