Not bad, the 1KS comes out to $340 shipped, that's over $130 off retail.

Good deal for someone who needs a clutch.

yeah I was considering buying a spare actually, but the reason I didn't go with AC before is because I'm not sure the 1KS will hold 200lb ft of torque, and I feel like I fall into a weird spot inbetwen the stage 2 and stage 3. I hate when they rate it in a % increase over stock... over a stock B series that makes 111 lb ft to the crank? Great, that really helps.

Clutches should be rated by how much torque they can hold, and saying a 1KS can hold "70% more torque than stock" does literally nothing for me, considering there's no "stock" b series. We talking B16? B18C5? B20? No matter what, 70% more than stock is certainly not over 200lb ft, and I'm probably making about that. Bleh.

for the longest time that bothered me to. i just started doing math(btw i suck at math) and would get a decent idea and crap shoot it. i called them today and they suggested the stage 5 2ms. told them i was making just over 500 whp. one of there employers uses that clutch and makes 530? on his k series with the 2ms.'

another cool thing is they are designed and made in the USA. they have been in business since 1962.

I'm always willing to give other companies a try. maybe it will work maybe not. but for 311.50 shipped to my door....i aint beating that price

Gotta move this to the sales / Feedback forum. I know you're letting us know about some great deals, but this is a tech forum, so I'll send it over there. No disrespect intended, ok?
