    How long have you had the stage 3 in the car?
    Myn has gotten better with each mile (250) but the petal is hard.
    I might go with the new LS7 clutch and pressure plate. I still might change myn out. I do not like the hard petal.

    I run a RamPower Grip HD with the 300series disk. It has held up well beyond my expectations. I run Nitto DR's and a healthy dose of Nitrous often. Zero chatter and about the same pedal stiffness as your Spec 3. This clutch drives like stock to me. I did run the Spec 3, great holding power but got tired of the "on/off" engagement and chatter.

    Hah I didnt know either!

    I remember Textrailia(sp?) making a decent clutch. I have the LS6 clutch and its lasted along time, but I wouldve gotten something better.

    LS7/LS2 clutch & flywheel setup. I have around 380 RWHP, and the clutch feels like a stocker.

    LS7 Clutch from Fred Beans

    I just bought the LS7 set up from Fred Beans. I also bought the 2002 Slave and throw out bearing. I am hopeful that I can get it all installed next week.
    I like the Spec3 and if I was 18 to 30 years old it would be the nut!
    I am 40 and want the soft petal and no jumping up and down on normal driving. If you like the 2000rpm launches at every stop light then buy the Spec 3. I will let you guys know how it all turns out when the install is done.
