After 3 years of Solo2 junk, my OE clutch is on its last legs. I have 42k on the car, but it doesn't grab good anymore. I have tried to adjust it, but my sister's '91 has a better clutch than mine. Now I can justify getting the flywheel lightened too. What prices has everyone paid for a ACT or a JWT? I don't need a full out race clutch, just a good one. I was looking at a JWT PP with a OE disc.

Here's some prices for you:

I bought the JWT PP last year this time for my 91. It was $220 I believe direct from JWT. Other places like Apex had it for like $190 but their customer services sucks (or so I have experienced)

I bought the Key-Value OEM clutch kit direct from my local Nissan dealer. It was like $89-95. Can't remember exactly how much. Anyways I used all of the stuff except of course the PP which I sold on SE-R.net for like $30. I would recommend the setup, the pedal effort is almost like stock, but I got huge ****ing burnouts in the 1st-2nd redline shift, and got the occasional 2nd-3rd chirp.

Your actually onto something as I'm looking for a new clutch soon.

Oh yeah forgot to mention, I think the ACT clutch is a little bit more heavy duty, so if you ever plan on like NOS or Turbo or something, go with that. The JWT pp is good for like 250hp.

If you're still going to run Street Touring in Solo II, you have no choice but OEM.

I paid 300 for the ACT PP and Disk from RX7.com out of Dallas. I beat the crap out of that thing, which in turn beat the crap out of my tires. It chirps really well tho.

I dont remember what I paied for the PP but I would recomend the JWT set up to anyone thats not making stupid power. I love mine. Dont get the Key Value clutch tho. Call up Courtersy or get ahold of mee on pricing for the OE disk.

The key value clutch is cheeper than the normal clutch disk. There is a reason for that. I dont think the key value will hold up as well or last as long as the normal one.

Jay,
If you show up at E-town tomorrow I will be more than happy to let you drive my car.

Don't worry about it. I used the Key value disc and the JWT PP for over 15,000 miles and it was fine when I sold the car. I think the regular OEM disc is a little better as it's more expensive. But you'll be fine.

I have the ACT HD PP with sprung street disc. It withstands 17-18psi no problem but can get overheated at the track with slicks pretty easy if your not careful. Anything under 15psi is cake.

I'm floored at what this clutch is holding for power. It's insane...it was not supposed to do this. This will be my third season on the same clutch!

BTW, I would hate to see where I would be put for class in AutoX. SCCA bullshit is one of the reasons I don't bother with it. No offense but if *THEY* want to make *MY* car payments I will be more than happy to build *MY* car to *their* specs. Until then...kiss it!

Get the ACT HD w/their street disc. Excellent combo. I have the ACT Xtreme and the street disc. It is a great clutch, but hard on the foot/leg for a daily driver. I got mine for $371 w/the TO bearing and the adjustment tool

If you go ahead with a JWT, when you order the stock disc, order one for a 2000 SE. Its the same as yours stock, but its said to be slightly heavier and stronger. Just a heads up for ya.

just don't break your clutch arm guys, or am I the only one with bad luck with that thing. the key value clutchs, brake pads, ect you need to stay away from. key value stuff is made for people who do not really give a sh$t about their car, and just want something to throw in there. the pads squeak constantly, the clutches are not as good, but ymmv, imho oh, and Naji, when are you gonna update your site? I have used it for my cam, and st bar install? I want to see a writeup on your truechoice suspention. your site is actually very helpful when in need.
