Two clutch choices from act

Got to get a new clutch now sucks big time. Looking at the act hdss and act hdg6(6 puck)
I dd the car it takes me ever I got to go.
I'm on e85 looking to upgrade the Turbo wheels to get more power Ives seen lots of people swear by both styles. Just wondering what I everyone would recommended I do a lot of driving and i don't want to be replacing this for a while I'm going to buy this from modern today let me know

A disc clutch is a much better choice for a daily driven vehicle .

Im sure it could have been a bad disc, ACT said it was the tq spike from the s3k though. Which makes no sense to me, big turbos run much bigger tq numbers and seem to be fine, As far as installation being the culprit I doubt it, Ive Installed over 10 clutches all issue free

Yea man I Think MAP Sells the discs themselves for around $180. Once you replace the stock modular unit you can swap different Pressure Plates, Clutches or flywheels

A puck clutch does not like to be slipped in when engaging clutch . They preferred to be all in or not . When driving in low traction conditions you simply can't dump the clutch without spinning . For this reason I would recommend the disc . You can treat it like the stocker , you can behave like a normal commuter car in the rain and snow . If you pay attention to your clutch foot you will notice that you tend to ease in the clutch quite a bit in bad weather . Try crossing an intersection from a full stop , in the rain . Chances are you are either slipping the clutch or spinning the tires .
