Anybody had any experience with Spec Clutches?? Farmer told me about them and im looking at this clutch to go with turbo conversion:

http://www.specclutc...ch-p-21425.html

Its a twin plate clutch suitable for race, fast street, time attack & rally applications. Its also rated to 800nm.

Price is £1203.19 Delivered from Backdraft Motorsport in Milton Keynes

Any opinions??

Cheers
Ben

Spec have a terrible reputation with turbo r32 cars.

I was thinking on getting it but its only rated to 440 ft/lbs/600nm and that's no good for me, I need a clutch with minimum 500 ft/lbs/670nm.

I'm going for 500bhp with around 650nm, which is 480 ft/lbs. And I don't want a clutch that's on it's limits with torque, plus I will most probably so engine work later on and then have slightly more power etc....

I haven't turbo'ed mine yet, so can't answer if it holds the rated tq. But i have installed a Spec Stage 3+ with steel fw, because i want to go FI, and i have had no problems at all. I use it daily, and its not hard to drive.
This is the clutch I have on order based on HPA recommendation - No failures reported from HPA on any of their cars and that's good enough for me

@ 420bhp and 360lbft low boost so just shy of 500Nm,

Had a whole heap of CM stage 4`s before that that were just utter garbage. Got sick of pulling the gearbox so ditched the useless CM and got the Spec 3+ and it worked for me.
