Roommates don't really bother me much.. then again i've just been renting places.. I'm sure if it was my house and people were living there I'd end up thinking different.. I'd want things done how i'd want it done and people would prolly end up thinking I have ocd or something lol

indeed, he's lucky and the situation works out pretty well for all involved. all of the roomies are people he's known for quite some time and they are all pretty responsible with money. Its a unique mix of people for sure. I'm surprised its worked out so well.

1 of 4 of them works early like i do and gets out early.
2 of them work 8-5 type shifts
1 of them works 2nd shift

I think the things that help the situation are 1:
they have written contracts and stick to them mercilessly. late on rent? pay a late fee, 1 exception per year, and only 1 week.
2: the homeowner is pretty chill, he see's it as a starter/1st home and isnt terribly OCD I think last I had talked to him his goal was to have it paid off in 5-8 years at which time he'll look for a bigger/better house for just him/his future wife/gf and then he'll just keep the current house as a rent property.


I'm with Aku, I think I'd want to do it but I'm not sure I could keep myself from going crazy if people didnt treat my house the way I wanted it treated.
for the most part they are out of each others hair during the week.

Spec stage 1 is $825 with aluminum flywheel

CFM stage 1 (FX100) is 800 aluminum flywheel

Spec stage 2 is 870 with aluminum flywheel.

I do plan on keeping the car for a while. Which one would be the best for me as a DD and staying n/a with just bolt ons and tune.

Well money permitted stage 2 for any reason over stage 1 for my use? I do plan on trying some auto x at some point.

All NA SVT I would assume Stg 1 would be plenty. I got a stg 2 cuz at the time I planned on getting the FSWerks turbo kit and wanted a clutch taht was beefier than stock but couldn't afford a stg 3 at the time. And I needed a new clutch as the stock one was shot.

Look at the torque ratings of each clutch... If I recall a stg 1 clutch has more gripping force than the svt with a tune can produce torquewise

clutches unfortunatley dont work very well on a scale system because they are rated by each manufacturer.

the cfm/clutchmaster stage 1 setup should actually hold as much power as the spec stage 2 based on material selection alone.

both should be more than sufficient for a bolt-on+tune svtf even with auto-x

(which is quite easy on the clutch given you have 1 launch and then a shift to second and you dont touch the clutch again)

about all I could say is if you get a chance before spring and could drive a car with each clutch you may prefer the feel of one over the other but other than that you wont notice any difference.

Might get stage 2 just incase Turbo is ever an option. Its 80 more. Only money right? Depends how much money I have by spring. Between Xmas money and b day in March, I should be set haha.

Sidenote trading my bro 4 245/55/16 hankook tires for all my timing belt parts! Pretty even trade since tires have 3 k on them haha.
