holy hell that is nice. i want

any idea how it compares to the clutchmasters twin disk?

how forgiving is it for street driving? the cm twin disk is pretty good once you get used to it

how many miles can we estimate getting from it before the disks need replacing?

when the clutch wears out do we need to replace everything but the flywheel or can we just replace clutch disk only? how much does the clutch disk only cost new?

my max power goal is 700ft/lbs at any point so ill never max out the tilton or the clutchmasters. im just trying to figure out which will suit my needs best in the long run meaning which one lasts longer, which is better for street driving and which is cheaper and easier to replace when it wears out. im really surprised i never came across this before. i did extensive research on clutch options when i was getting my build together and never saw this guy.

I've checked into all that and had Terry Haines let me know how to go about all of this:

- Tilton's website has the disks for ~$125 each.
- You only need to change the disks due to wear. Remove 6 bolts and swap.
- Actually just checked and prices are lower in a 2-pack = $200 total
- Wear will be not that great and comparable to CM twin plate or Exedy twin plate if you're running massive power like 500+whp and wtq.

This is a review from an evo site. Guy's car has 500whp and tq on his evo. He compares top leading twin plates and states this has best lift of all of them for HARD miles. Quoting post below and also link:

Tilton carbon has bad rep for lasting as street clutch. Mine however has held up very well to many street miles. carbon material resist wear far better when hot. carbon material takes 1000 easy miles to get broken in proper. must form smooth glass like surface. Given that 99% of the people who choose a tilton carbon/carbon where die hard drag racers it is my belief the clutches that failed early were never broken properly. driving a drag car 1000 easy city miles is pretty much impossible. second these cars are run cold for best times at track, strike two. a final they all used very light fly which requires high rpm and lots of slip to get off the line, strike three. My tilton clutch has maybe 7500 hard city miles on it. has 24 lb weight (16 for evo) From the wear I have seen thus far I feel I can get 150,000 street miles out of it.

Carbonetics clutches are proving to be phenomenally long wearing clutches. see post #4 above. I recently bought a used twin with 45,000 miles on it. one plate had just .005 wear on it. the second prematurely worn due to pressure plate being warped from overheating. when these clutches are driven properly they will outlast life of car. not a good choice for drag racers as its far too easy to over heat metal parts. once they warp they destroy carbon in just a few miles. currently my favorite clutch hands down.

RPS carbon. not much data on this clutch. RPS stopped making this clutch years ago because they got too much feedback of lock out at high rpm. I recently sold one to friend who needed a good clutch for his new build. I was extremely jealous of how well the clutch drove. I called rps to see if he had any and he said they dont make them any longer. He did say they now have advanced materials to make a triple that would shift WAy better than the twin. I choose not to be Ginnie pig. the clutch here started slipping after 4000miles. He has been battling oil leaks since built so I am 99% sure oil mist may have soaked the plates. the rebuild will cost 1050.

that sounds really good but i dont know still. it seems really close to the CM but it still costs more. based off what im seeing though the shifting speed of yours is superior to the CM. but i still have the 6 puck to wear out before i get to this point and i wasnt planning on buying a clutch yet. if you still have this around tax time and if there isnt anything else that pops up that i NEED to spend the money on ill probably snag this then but i cannot justify that kind of money on something i may not need for over a year right now.
