    Ive had a spec stage three for over three years on D.D. I compete with a club and make well over 100 passes a year, still holding up strong. Sucks in bumper to bumper traffic other wise no problem.

    Spec stage 3 here also. It slips just fine, Getting stuck in a traffic jam kinda sucks, but I think it DD's great!

    i dont make a whole lot of horse power, about 325hp. Would it be better using a stage 2 clutch from spec? my gears go in just fine, with the exception of 2nd gear, it spits it right out, all it does is grine. any suggestions?

    grinding in second gear only is probably worn syncros, popping out of gear could be bent shift fork. Clutch will not help those problems. Sound like your trans needs overhaul.
