    Well I started slipping the 6 puck at about 24PSI. Estimate somewhere around 540-560tq at the crank, so that would be over the 'rated' torque capacity when used with the HD pressure plate.

    Combine that with the 6-puck's miserable lifespan and harsh engagement; I've decided that I'm going to have south bend clutch build me a custom unit. Not only do I think they can do it as well as ACT, but they can do it cheaper, and they have a name that is even more respected in certain communities.

    jason, i can confirm for you that a stock z31 pp fits on a stock z32 flywheel. and the z32, z31 and z33 clutch plates have the same numbers through each line (sd, 6p, 4p) i talked to act about why they don`t make anything higher than a hd pp for z31/z32 and they said when we make enough power to kill them then they will start making clutches to hold it.

    almost gives me another goal to shoot for...

    I can give nisstex a call monday myself and see if they can compare the act xtreme and hd for us, maybe we'll get lucky

    I did find the Spec D clutches with all sorts of combos up to 6xx ft/lbs but prices approaching 1k...

    you'd think that we'd have more high torque options considering the nissan trucks that use it, stoopercharged and all

    I take it the company is called Euro Drive?

    I'll give them a ring!

    I think I am going to be writing a clutch faq eventually.

    personally I like a short throw but stiff pedal, not like 400lbs stiff like a fiat clutch but stiff so that I could leave my foot on it and vary it based on ankle effort, rather than have to move my whole leg back and forth

    it should push back up fully with my leg resting on it basically

    I was talking to SBC (south bend clutch, http://www.southbendclutch.com) before I got the 6-puck. They could probably build me a unit similar to the RPS for less than the $600 pricetag.

    Just to clarify: I am not "bashing" ACT or their 6-puck disc. They are a very affordable unit that offers great holding capacity and even faster shifting.

    why not ask one of the off brands like clutch specialties or whoever to make a super duper pressure plate to use with act/exedy/... organic street disc

    OR-Zman: I checked through Exedy's lineup a while ago, they have nothing but the super expensive twin disc clutch that will hold my amount of torque, and that's only for the Z32.

    All this is making me think someone should put together a "master" clutch list thread people can add to like the Z31 website links thread.

    hmmmmmmm....

    Just a thought, but...have you investigated the Exedy clutches? From what I can tell they have a full range of options that are at prices that are better than others on the market, especially on the higher performance clutches.

    I have a Stage 2 and couldnt be happier with it but I dont have the HP to really stress it. :?

    Just a thought. May be worth a look.

    ohh yea i wasnt implying to put it in your car , it would be for testing purposes only , and then you can use it as frisbee or a food serving plate , i helped my dad change a worn out stock clutch on his z32 when he had but that was a couple of years ago , before i ever thought of owning a z myself... so i dont remember much ..

    Z32 flywheel has 8 bolt holes for the DE engine's 8 flywheel bolts... we have 6.

    I believe graffz when he told me a Z32 PP bolts right onto the 250MM (87-89T) flywheel, I don't see why they would change the bolt pattern for the same size flywheel and clutch disc. I have a fidanza AL flywheel, so it's tapped for both anyway.

    well i guess the only way to find out is to see if a z32 pp will really bolt up or not.

    i guess the cheapest would be to find a cheap z32 used flywheel . or buy a cheap clutch at parts store of your choice , test fit and return it.

    I think you missed my point. I DO NOT want a another copper-ceramic type puck clutch disc because of the way they engage. They shock driveline components and cause failures much sooner than most other friction compounds. I would like to get the highest holding capacity possible, with good engagement at an affordable price, the problem is the only clutches with high holding capacity that are actually affordable are the puck type. A sprung hub will help, but only so much when the material has a sky-high CoF.

    I will never buy another SPEC clutch.
