    Clutch Recommendations

    I need a new clutch as mine is slipping, I was looking at getting the Exedy Pink Box Stage 1 Organic Clutch Kit from Scooby World.

    It states on their website that I will need a new flywheel as well or to have my existing flywheel professionally skimmed.

    I would like to know if this is the case or does anybody recommend any other clutch?

    Below are the links to the products I'm referring to.

    Thanks!

    That's the case. But get the serial number and shop around as the prices vary a lot.
    On the other hand if not up-ing the power and want to save few bob blue box is the factory replacement as much as l know

    stick with standard exedy clutch, nothing worse than a heavy clutch in traffic or as a daily

    I Have the Pink in my Wrx.

    Hard work in traffic and around the city.
    Juddery and jumpy when your trying to go slow or move forward in traffic.
    Probably not ideal for a daily.
    Give you mussels on your left leg.

    Beside the above,
    No issues on the open road etc.

    Try Tegiwa Imports in the UK

    They're quoting £318 for a pink Exedy

    I've a stage 1 excedy organic clutch fitted to my type r, got it from some clutch place in galway.( I can find out the name if you want)

    He was the cheapest around and good to deal with, next day delivery and had it in stock.

    Can't say I noticed any difference to the standard clutch, pedal is light and doesn't judder etc

    I had my flywheel skimmed while I was at it.

    Not sure as to the above comment about the stage 1 being hard to live with in traffic etc.

    Maybe as mentioned there is an anti judder one, which I most have got if that's the case.
