88rx7 soon to be streetported, not looking at gaining to much horsepower.



would you choose:





1. stock pressure plate (1100psi) with a 4 puck no springs



2. stock pressure plate (1100psi) with a 4 puck sprung hub (sp)



3. upgraded pressure plate (1600-1800 psi rating) with a 4 puck no spring



4. upgraded pressure plate (1600-1800 psi rating) with a 4 puck sprung hub (sp)



? (btw, this will be in bronze clutch material)



street drivability not an issue here. so what do you guys think? i want something that will grab for sure. my 6 port engine has 200k miles on it already, and may die in two years. but the engine runs strong with some smoke when revved past 6k rpms.



which would you guys prefer?

I had the dual friction centre force clutch. It does indeed drive nice, however the disc they use doesn't last long.

it will break if you drive like a ****** moron. but a couple passes down the track every now and then wont hurt it. it takes a little getting used to, but its worth it.
