RJS5689 Posted May 11, 2010 Share Posted May 11, 2010 I realize I have been flooding the transmission section, but I want to make sure I do my job right. I'm struggling to decide between my final clutch setups. I cant decide if I want a Spec setup which would be running a Kevlar disc, or an ACT/Exedy setup which would run an organic disc. I know the Kevlar is resistant to heat and grips well, but I also know if it is slipped too much and burnt, there is no recovering it. How much sleep is really needed to overheat a Kevlar clutch? I don't usually launch that hard, but now and then I will give it a good launch, especially if I am trying to jump ahead of a line of cars, or something similar. I do drive the car in Maine where I see lot's of snow in the winter (would this be problematic to the Kevlar?) I also spend time in New York in the summer dealing with traffic now and then. So I wasn't sure how much slipping a Kevlar clutch could take before it burns out. I also know they have a break-in period during which they can slip. I do engine break too, nothing crazy, but I'll rev-match up to about 3,500 sometimes. I really don't know if I should go Kevlar or organic. For what it's worth, the set-ups I'm looking at are: ACT SB4-HDSS: uses an organic clutch disc Exedy Stage 1HD: uses an organic clutch disc Spec Stage 2: uses a pure Kevlar friction material Spec Stage 2+: uses Hybrid Kevlar and Carbon-Graphite Friction material The vehicle is a protuned stage 2 Legacy Spec.B.
