I have one waiting to install

I had a phantom grip in my last focus and LOVED it, especially in the snow and rain!
The contact info is on the image below: 561-965-5772
The part # is TK100
Looks like other stores also carry the upgrade kit:

Thanks for the rep everyone! :)

Another month on the new setup and I'm still happy with the clutch and Phantom Grip.
No track time yet. With a new baby I'm not sure I'll make it this year.
I'm definitely amazed with the difference in grip.
We'll see about longevity, but for the moment the PG is great.

Ok, I did make it to the track this Friday. (ran a 14.74 @ 96). Video is in the racing section.
I'm impressed with the Phantom Grip and also the Exedy 3-puck (stage 2) race clutch.
Both parts took 6-7k rpm speed shifts like nothing... just a nice agressive *bang* as the clutch grabs.

So my ~1k mile and drag strip review is a big thumbs up for my drivetrain modifications.
This includes the Phantom Grip, Exedy clutch, poly dog bone inserts, and tranny poly mount.

I probably won't have many more details to add unless something goes wrong.
I will say my general drivetrain noise has increased significantly, but nothing alarming.
