    Looking for info on clutch kits.

    I am having my engine rebuilt and the mechanic says I need to replace the pressure plate and clutch. I have an RPS Max TT with Street Disc and it has a light pedal which I like a lot. I don't want the heavy stock clutch, I'm thinking either stage 1 or stage 2.
    What is an affordable replacement that also has a light pedal?? Any info, links or websites where I can read and compare things would be great.

    The south bend clutches have a nice light pedal and are really affordable. If you don't want a heavy pedal, then stay away from ACT.

    South Bend, looks like I will be doing more reading about them then. Yeah I got the feeling about ACT being heavy. Thanks Hans!

    No problem. I use ACT clutches in my own twin turbos and they are definitely a very heavy clutch.

    Oh yeah. I dont want a heavy clutch, I test drove a 92 TT and it had a heavy clutch. It was not fun to drive. I have also been looking at Ralco RZ clutches. I dont know anything about them, but it sounds like a good one. But IDK

    Do NOT use a SPEC clutch unless it is a Unsprung hub. Period.

    Springs like to explode out of the discs and cause a ton of damage.
