    Clutch / Flywheel upgrade opinions?

    Just wondering if anyone can share their experience with either of these clutch/flywheels? I'm considering either the Clutchmasters fx-400 / 16 lb flywheel vs. the Spec stg. 3 clutch and their flywheel.

    How has daily driving been? Has anyone compared the two options and chosen one over the other? Thanks.

    Check out ACT, they have some good products and I am using their full face clutch w/ heavy duty PP in my ST install.
    I have had plenty of good experiences with ACT in the past, but ClutchMasters has always been a bit sketchy to me.
    Don't go SPEC, there is some serious fitment issues.

    I've been running the SPEC stage 3 clutch and flywheel for 4000+ miles with no issues. There is gear rattle with the AC on but without it's fine

    on e90? possible i suppose, i havnt read many of the recent threads. but either way it must be that case with turkish335? it was his shop that installed it improperly, i would say thats the number 1 reason why people complain about their clutch. fwiw, ive read some horror stories on ACT clutches as well man, even on the n54.
