I was looking at single carbon and twin carbon clutches on DR..
is twin disc worth the extra 1100 bucks? I'm thinking about getting it with DR650s and fuel mods, would I not need the twin disc with just that mod...? and it's gonna be my everyday car....anyone know if the single disc carbon lasts more than RPS MAX 6 puck on street use..? cuz I heard they only get like 7000 miles? and one more thing....anyone know the weight of the flywheel that comes with those clutches?

Difference is in power holding capability. The Single is good for around 600hp and the double around 1000hp. The people have reported that the doubles make a little noise and are just like stock in pedal pressure. The singles are a little harder in pressure then stock. The singles is 1495 on sale at AAM the double 2495 at AAM. They last a long time supposedly and cost about $300 per plate to get them rebuilt, so its much cheaper then the regular clutches after about two rebuilds (if you even need them). It comes with an a light flywheel as well. THerefore, compare a StageIII clutch+ flywheel = $1000 and has a life of around 10k-25k to the single carbon which (we have no factual info yet) should last at least double that for an extra $495+ you have one less $500-800 labor charge to install, it makes perfect sense to me.

200

its about 200 per plate for rebuild, and the holding capacity is in ft/lbs of torque, the information above is excellent....basically if you think you'll make more than 600 ft./lbs of torque then you need to look at the twin...DR650s would be capable of it but you'd need a good amount of boost to do so

thanks for the corrections, I was going to do an edit on my post since I wasn't sure if it was $200 or 300 for rebuild and if it was hp or Ft/lbs. Basically if the double is ft/lbs, our car will never hit 1000ft/lbs. I bet AAMs car isn't even 600ft/lbs of torque.
