When tuning your car, the Advanced Clutch heavy Duty Performance Street Disc Clutch Kit is a beast. It is easy to install, grips very nicely and is very responsive to gear shifts. It is ideal for people whose wheel horsepower (whp) is 420 and below. Considering that it does not come with an improved lightweight flywheel, its pricing is slightly on the higher side.
After installation, the clutch becomes nice and grabby, and the driver feels much more in control. It has a small chatter when the vehicle is in first gear. However, the rest of the other gears are nice and smooth.
Pedal Stiffness and Stalling
It is interesting to know that pressing the clutch down, the pedal stiffness of an advanced clutch is not any different from the stock clutch. To install it, you need to resurface the flywheel and not purchase a new OEM flywheel. Key to note is that the vehicle will stall on a couple of occasions when you try to drive it. This is because when you are releasing your foot on the clutch pedal, you get the feeling that it wants to throw you off the pedal. However, this is not a worry as you will get used to it after some time.
In the first few miles after installation, there will be an irritating clatter sound. The sound will increase when the vehicle is in throttle and in gear. When installed in pitchstop, motor, or STI transmission mounts, the clutch gives the vehicle a “race car” sound. After some driving time, the noise will go down as well and the advanced clutch will start to feel like a normal clutch engagement. The advanced clutch holds power amazingly and its clamping force is a huge upgrade over its stock clutch engagement.
In summary, the advanced clutch street disc clutch kit is a clutch engagement that is easy to mount and is nice and grabby. It drives more power to the ground, as is a huge plus over the stock clutch engagement. The clutch will take you some time to adjust to, and the vehicle is expected to stall on various occasions when you are releasing your foot from the clutch pedal. It is a little bit pricey, but you can be guaranteed that you will get value for your money.
