Your oppinion is wanted!

Just wanted to check with everyone and get some feedback on aftermarket clutch parts for the 996. My clutch is starting to slip under heavy loads. Who makes a GOOD performance clutch. And who has used it that knows if its worh a crap. I want the best of the best. and I want your valueable oppinions! thanks guys!

check Barnett clutches or vesrah. I think EBC also makes em.

I put an EBC set of friction plates in mine and they work great, no slipping yet after 12000 miles and I'm pretty hard on my clutch. I didn't go for the racing kit because i was told it's very grabby, not really ideal for the street. I'd recommend the one I used. But as Azzkiker says, Barnett make a good set as well. If vesrah clutches are anything like their brakes I'd steer clear.

Yeah I've had some bad dealings with Vesrah. anything I cannot pronounce I really dont think I want...
How Grabby is a race clutch? I've never used one.

I think the main difference is that a race clutch has stiffer springs, which makes it heavier at the lever, but also less prone to slipping. As far as the grabby thing goes I'm not sure,that's just what a couple of people have told me (who sell clutches).

So called 'race' clutches are usually made of Kevlar. It's the material that gives it the grabby feel. I've heard lots of horror stories, so unless you REALLY abuse your clutch you probably should not consider Kevlar plates.
