RACEGT starts to have Mod's installed and bang goes the clutch. Any Recommend clutchs

Well after my 13.76sec pass its time for all my mods to be installed.

Well I didn't get to put all my mods on, I only got the underdrives on which showed a 12rwkw increase. The 80mm CAPA throttle body used with BPT Helix Spacer which only show 1-2 rwkw. I think you need the Extractors and Exhaust to see a good again on the throttle body.

Well anyway after this I jumped in the car give it a fang and bang goes the clutch.

What options are avaliable?

CAPA stage 3 clutch with Alloy Fly wheel $2200
XClutch with Alloy Fly wheel $2***
Exedy Clutch ?
SVO Clutch ?
or
Any others I don't know about, what are other people using.

Mr RACEGT,
I am currently fitting lightened billet steel flywheels ARP bolts with upgraded lightened pressure plate and friction plate for $1,390.00 fitted including gst.
I have personally tested them in my own GTP(276rwkw) and was at Oran park last Thursday and it was perfect all day.
If you have any questions give me a call. I dont know where you are?

Well it didn't quite go bang but the pedal comes forward when I hammer it and the clutch is slipping alot but im sure sooner than later it will go bang. The car has been driven hard on road and off. Its really got bad after I let greg ritter (V8 supercar driver) drove it at calder park at almost full race speed, I was taking lessons on how I should drive the car.

Just a suggestion try looking at places in the states if your not in a hurry. They have upgrades for the 3650 box itself and clutch's.

I havn't had it on geelong tuneups dyno which read 251.9rwkw before mods which I think reads a bit high. On daltons automotives dyno before mods read 239.9rwkw so considering the enviroment conditions have now changed from last time the car only dyno to 234.7rwkw (5kw loss) then after underdrive where installed it went upt to 245.5rwkw then installed throttle body it went up to 246rwkw but i would like to try it back on the other dyno after i have fitted the exhaust.
