Are you talking about a 3000GT VR4 clutch?
You're going to have to get better at asking questions if you want answers.
What are your questions?

Oh, good call Mike!
I just had a vr stage 2 clutch I bought off ebay.
The car is down for a new clutch less than a year later.
Clutch seemed great for factory DD use, but failed under higher Hp, high speed use.
Loved the mid weight flywheel, seemed just right and woke up the engine.
Hope this review helps!
Now my car is down for a triple plate carbonetic clutch, top of the line!

Dont buy stage anything unless you have a real reason to. Driveability goes down as stage number goes up.

^^^^ Ditto the above. I picked up a stage 2 because it's a nice balance but I do light track use as well. Catches nicely and is liveable for dding. But anything above stage 2 is usually a no go without a serious reason.

Hermit- What mods? What kind of power are you making/do you plan to make?

I bought the F1 Stage 2 -before- hearing everyone on here plead and beg me not to...
Let my experience/hard lessons be an easy lesson to you in advance.

Most people on here prefer OEM Mitsubishi clutch kit for longevity, as it's a big service.
Other than that many others prefer Southbend clutches, heard lots of positives.

I would stay far away from F1 from my experience with them, 22k mi on a clutch?!
They're not great, an OEM clutch would have lasted a lot longer.

I did like the lightweight chromopoly flywheel though, gotta recommend that one.
Took it from a slow revving slow car to a quick revving peppy happy car.
In hindsight, lightweight flywheels also wear your clutch much more quickly.
I did not realize this as I bought it, you are now informed in advance.

I went straight from bottom of the line F1 Stage 2 ebay bs to Triple Plate top of the line.
The triple plate carbonetic clutch was $2,500. It has life expectancy of 5-7 years.

F1 said even their stage 4 clutches would not hold under my use longer than a year.
My use is 90% DD 10% race, possible once yearly top speed run.

Stay far away from the end of the speedo to save your clutch.
Above 150mph there's quite a bit of slip/clutch overheating.

I won't have to worry about that slip anymore, because my style of clutch.
No topping out my rebuilt car to test that theory, I want to keep this car around.

I also agree about stages kill DD.
If you get a F1 stage 3 clutch and mainly DD it will die way too fast.
Was told by company the DD on the race clutches kills them faster than racing.

OP, what are your mods, what do u plan on doing with the car upgrade wise, personally I wouldn't go near that clutch, 93 3000gt vr4 gave you a good idea about the clutch, and what mostly everyone else will say to you about buying a clutch on this board.
