I have a Skyline GTS-T R33

Has anyone had any experience with these? Im running 280bhp currently, will be looking to increase to 300-350 but the clutch i have now is meant to be an excedy but its slipping, i dont think its a paddle clutch as its easy to pull away gently etc, very smooth.

I am looking at the Apex ACT paddle clutch kit
http://82.110.105.84/apexperformanc...52&PHPSESSID=67f9047bcdfa6a301e928cd87f7d3be7

Will this do the job without me having to replace it again after a few thou miles?

I am mainly on road with odd track day and quick launch from the lights and the odd little rear end drift.... hehe

Also how long u think it will take to fit roughly... done a few engine changes and stuff in my time so not scared of it.

Cheers
Mark

hi mark, ive never heard of them we tend to use either a r32gtr clutch it fits straight in or get one from rising sun performance, its not a long job, just a ***** to take out and re-fit the gearbox there is a knack to it mate....

paddles generally aren't worth it in my opinion. Have used a couple of the ACT organics and found them to be great though. Anything after that and I'd move straight onto a twin plate to be honest.

What clutch would you all recommend I order from Rising sun then?

Want to give them a call on Tuesday to order it as I need one pretty sharpish

Thanks

from rising sun - no idea but I'm sure they'll tell you what they've got that suits your budget and power needs.
If you're looking at paddle clutches I'd be surprised if an organic clutch with upgraded cover wouldn't be suitable, in which case I'd recommend the ACT's from bren.
Exedy stuff is also very good.

Ok so Apex stuff is good?

Ill still give Rising sun a call and see what they think too.

I take it all the clutches come with everything I need.. nothing else I need to buy only to find out when the gearbox is off??

just to point out ACT (Advanced Clutch Technology) and Apex are two different companies, Apex just sell them :)


Provided you're buying it as a clutch kit you should get everything included, always best to ask and make sure what it consists of.
The ACT organics are very good clutches, as are exedy.
