there fine if you like a aggresive engagement (i.e. they don't like to slip). ifoyu don't then a standard HD clutch will do fine. better for the T5 box also

well its n/a at the moment but turbo kit is being built up as i get money. looking for around 250kw at the rear wheels, problem is no clutch company will say yes there clutch will take that power and i want to slide the car in the future. and dont want to drop it out again if i go through a hd one

might end up easier going h/d. the button clutches are harsh on the rest of the driveline. if u are wanting to slide it later on, your going to be changing the clutch more than once.

drift when im skilled enough to but not going to say drift coz i carnt drift on the road yet.

ille just live with the cussioned brass button. plus going to spend the money and get my other gearbox built with a ppg gear set.
