sorry to go off topic. But i had a CM fx500 in my car with 420whp and never felt it slip. I put about 4500 street miles on it.

Action Clutch sent me the 2MS for some testing. It's not mainly the HP that makes a clutch slip it's the torque. My car made 452 ft tq.

they must not expect results for a couple years haha

guys need to understand this clutch isn't really for the daily crowd although I have used it for that purpose I wouldn't recommend it. Clutchmaster states its for race use only. I will use them until I find a better option at this price point

LOL.... Car has to run 9's this season then it will sit forever and then some

Clutch Masters for the price is amazing.... I for one am avoiding a twin disk as much as I can so that's why I am trying different options. Also I am glad to test it for them. Should be fun.

I have the 6 puck unsprung FX500.

OK so what people say about engagement is true. It's really easy to drive. You can slip it a little bit and it doesn't bite right away. No problem in stop and go traffic.

The only point I strongly disagree with what some people have said is pedal effort/feel. This thing is as stiff or more so than my ACT XTSS. I have a cable clutch. It's nowhere near stock pedal effort. About what you'd expect from a performance clutch on a cable pedal. Not complaining as it's about the same as my ACT clutch was, but don't want to mislead people.

Each clutch will feel a tad different.. my friend an I both had fx500 at same time an my pedal was slightly stiffer than his.. an my jwt ok was even a little stiffer then the fx..

bump from the past. I'm looking for a clutch for my 2000 GTI-R swapped motor. I was running my old spec clutch that I had on my ve.. and its slipping bad. So this will be a daily driver or at least 3 times a week. Travel about 80 miles each time stop and go sometimes. Either the FX500 or the Heavy Duty ACT. Any input guys? Its a street car not a 1/4 mile drag car. Will rarely see the drag strip but will be running who ever on the street.

also would it be worth to look into the fx400 its more in price but will it last in the long run for a daily clutch. I don't plan on pushing more than 400whp 360wtq?
