I Am Going To Orders A New Clutch And I Cant Decide On What Brand To Get. Should I Get A Clutch Masters Or A Spec. Also What Stage Should I Get? 1,2, Or 3. My Focus Is Pretty Much Stock. Just Have Bolt On's. Thanks

Well I vote clutchmasters, have had good luck so far and know many others that love theirs....

As far as stage it depends on your goals, if you plan on FI anytime soon get a stage 3 or stage 4, if you are staying NA stick with 1 or 2.

I have always had Spec and haven't had any issues. Currently running a Stg2 and love it, great drivability and holds great even with my supercharger.

If you are all stock and not adding many upgrades I would stay with a stage 1 or stage 2 if you are hard on it when driving. We have the Spec and Clutch Masters listed at http://www.importcarpartsplus.com/focusclutchfw.htm Both are quality setups and I would be happy with either one.

Is your clutch really heavy? I had a spec stage 2 and it was super duper heavy pressure. So heavy it blew out my original master cylinder after 1 autocross.

Wierd, mines not heavy at all? It was just a tad heavier than stock. Sounds like maybe you had some other issue. I'm on my second Spec clutch and I love them. I actually have a stg1 in my car and it holds fine even with my JRSC (granted they only make about 40wtq more than stock).

Maybe they're just very tricky to install or something. In any case, replacing the MC did nothing to relieve the pressure.
