well after much debating and headaches...i'm ordering up a OS Giken Super Single clutch soon. Should be more than enough for this car. Hopefully it lives up to the price tag haha :roll: Merry Christmas!

You should like the OS clutch. I have a twin disk one on my 350z, holds power well and fairly easy to drive with for a twin plate.

i definately stick with the single if its man enough.

i have an os giken triple r3c in my 600 whp r33 gtr and although the clutch pedal effort is low the bitting point is extremely difficult to master, literally an on and off switch !
nice car i love your rims :)

Thanks guys!

Car should be back on the road Thursday finally after some drama haha. Hoping the install goes smooth and I can knock that shit out in less than two hours! :shock:

Anyone need a new 240mm 6 puck clutch?

Awh, man, it looks so sweet! Gah, I love DR30s so much. I really like 31s too, but around here, there are about a thousand sedan 31s getting around on chopped springs and stockies..

I love the bolt ons, they look so good. The whole car looks awesome, great taste! Maybe needs to be a little lower.. But that might be me, I don't understand the term 'too low'. ;)

Nice! Ahhh, that really sucks, things like flairs and lips and stuff, it pays so much to do it right the first time. Oh well, it still looks awesome! Will look sweet dropped, I look forward to it.

they actually did a great job at the cutting properly, but i think it's high up. they even extended the fender liners to match the flare. honestly i could be wrong, not sure how high up OEM goes. the rear is cut fantastically as well...but they didnt cut it all the way up to the flare line. it blows since they made it look like the car came that way from underneath the car :/ eventually i will probably ruin thier hard work and cut the rear higher under the flare :oops: really i just want the front gap smaller. someone asked me if i pulled the engine lmao...that is on theback burner tho, just praying tomorrow goes smooth and i'm back on the streets!

FINALLLLLLLYYYY on the road again :twisted: def loving this clutch so far! VERY VERY easy to drive. Pedal is a litter lighter than I thought it would be, but it's not bad at all. Clutch chatter is limited to the time it takes to shift into gear. Silent at all other times, including in neutral. I've read some bad reviews online, none of which make sense after driving one myself :?

Only gripe would be that it didn't come with flywheel bolts. The kit came with a new throw out bearing and collar assembly though, which was nice.

love the pics man, did you order that Alternator from the Ebay link that i sent?

mine has been perfect so far.

might want to consider their starter and starter relay kit if your starter starts to slow down.

my car's nickname is now officially "adventure time". or "24". non stop adventures...and 24 refers to amount of hours i can drive it before i need to fix something >_< drove out to yokohama to get my license plate finally...about 35km from my home...clutch slave blew up before i got there. decided to tough it out, made it out and got my plates. next adventure, drive thru 300 stoplights with no clutch then 20km down the highway clutchless shifting....i made it home with only one or two grinds 8)
