CLUTCH!

Ok... my clutch is pissing me off, it's holding virtually none of my torque, so I think it's time to replace or upgrade. What are some good clutches (street), and where is the adsolute cheapest that I can find them?

i would definatly go with a street clutch or TRD... any 4 puck or 6 puck will be too agressive for daily driving.

i looked at some of the mods you have,if you do a little weekend racing i would go with an act 6 puck with the hd preasure plate.(dont get the 4 puck or the xtreme preasure plate,some retailers sometimes send you the x plate and tell you its basically the same)if you just drive hard and launch the car every now and then,get the street clutch.
ps:it seems like the TRD clutch is good for street as well,i have driven a celica with one,but not for any length of time under varying conditions to say yes its good under "most conditions"
good luck smile.
ps:what kind of gains you got with the p/p. if you didnt dyno let me know what "you" think

HYBRID:resulting from the combination of two or more mechanically dissimilar origins!

look into an rps max street clutch. and maybe an rps lightweight flywheel(they're completely rebuildable)

TRD...i had to learn to drive it again. I cant wait for my engine to break in so i can see what it does. Its like an on-off switch. This just maybe cause its the first performance clutch ive ever had. And my dealer sold it to me for like 310.00. I think that was a good price!?

Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

Is this a good one? I kinda hope it is, because the price is right...

clutch

And, as par as the gains with the p/p, i would guess maybe 10 or 15. It was a little more than what I felt with my Intake/exhaust combo.

Is the six puck clutch good for street driving, because I do race on the weekends during the summer.

the one in the link is a no name brand confused couldnt find any info on it.

the six puck is not good for street, it will wear out in way less miles than a street clutch.
