Factory Clutch Gone. Time For New

So First Time Posting A thread To FF, But I'm No Newbie to the focus world lol. I've Barely turned 17 and was givin from My mom A 02 Ford Focus zetec. Being excited to have a new car, I only have a One Big Problem learning how to drive a manual vehicle, in the mix of that I slowly but surely ran through the OEM Clutch. But No worries It Lasted about 2 1\2 years until i started tinkering with it Anyways, I have money saved for a flywheel and clutch combo Any suggestions? I was looking at Clutch Masters FX350 Any expierences with this clutch? What experience do you have from Aftermarket clutch's? Also any tips you've learned about your Manual Focus? All Information will Greatly Appreciated. Thanks -Chris

Unless you have a lot done, as in +100hp. A stock clutch will hold just fine.

I highly recommend the Center Force Dual Friction clutch. I have one with over 100k mi and lots of abuse, plus it's only like 20 bucks more than a stock clutch.

I bought this from CFM: Click Here

Per William at CFM it should hold up to 250 wtq, which is way more than you're currently making.
