I have been very happy with my Clutch Masters Stage 4.

Takes awhile to break in to where it isn't really grabby, after that not bad at all.

I had the stage 4 (4 puck, sprung hub) on my FrankenTiva (Festiva w. Miata Motor and ECU) and man..that thing GRABBED with a vengance. Chirped 3rd with ease. Course, the FT only weighs what...1400# GVWR? I had to rev it up higher and almost slip the clutch everytime in traffic. I want just a notch under that...so, 3 it is...I just want to see what ditching the DMFW does infavor of a light FW...I cant wait..hope its nice and rev happy!!
