Put a Exedy Sports tuff 1400kg pressure plate and a valeo cushioned brass button ceramic clutch disk in. I followed the makers instructions did 1000km of normal driving to bed it in. Did 2 hard launchs and one Burnout in 2nd went to 3rd and just slipped and pedal went funny.

I only put a standard clutch disk in $39. I need to get some money back on the defective clutch kit, before i can afford (inbetween jobs) to get my standard pressure plate re torqued to 3000lbs with a full face organic clutch disk. Wont ever use ceramic again unless im running slicks and i wont be doing that for a while not untill the new engines in.
