Yeah BoostHard is right, for your level I would stick with a Sprung ACT Street Clutch. Unsprung will be way too rought of a ride to actually enjoy during daily driving. Sprung makes it nicer and smoother. Call Andrewtech Automotive and tell them Donald told you to call and they could probably hook you up for a good deal.

I got a spec stage 3+ with the spec aluminum flywheel. Feels just like stock, took a lot of abuse and still going at it hard with 18k miles since I replaced it. When it does go out I'm gonna fork out the money for a twin disc carbon clutch from exedy. Read a lot of amazing reviews and my friend just got one and loves it.

Twin Disc Exedy clutches are very smooth and very nice for daily driving. However, when you do decide to occasionally get on it the exedy carbon clutches wear very fast compared to an ACT clutch.

Your stage 3 clutch will last for quite some time. Im only running a stage 2 so the stage 3 can deal with much more than mine would. I would expect your tranny to go before the clutch! alien

Thanks for the insight o:! Didn't know how good the spec clutch was lol. But it hasent failed me yet. Before I bought it I consulted with a person at Subaru in which he replied "well better save up money for a real clutch, spec is garbage." over a year later and I'm a very satisfied customer (: lol I'll do more research on the twin carbon, luckily while I'm in Korea my friend will use his and he races and does canyon runs all the time in Cali, if his holds up on the abuse while I'm gone I'll be more interested in it
