    5 Stars   Great stage 1 clutch!
    By on 4/8/2014
    I was looking for an upgrade for my OEM clutch and stumbled on the Spec 1 clutch. I liked the fact that the clutch came with the pilot bearing and the throwout bearing. I'm about 100 miles into the break in period with no issues to report thus far. I can't wait to get through the break in to see what the clutch can really do.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   perfect setup
    By on 2/25/2015
    I had looked at many other clutch kits. I previously purchased a center force dual friction setup. Turned out to be overkill for my particular application, yet did not provide the longevity I was hoping. Spec has made great strides in recent years improving their product line. This setup is ideal for my daily driven 350 HP car. Excellent pedal feel and great holding power. Feels like I gained a bunch of HP now that I have a fresh clutch setup installed.

    I bought this because the PO had replaced the clutch with a cheap one from autozone. It is has little chatter at first, but just follow the break-in period, it smooths out really well.
