AU Xr6 Clutch Recomendation

it's finally happened, I'm up for a new clutch. just wondering what people recomend i should use on an AU1 XR6?

I have rang a couple of places some have recomended PBR and another place Daikin. Any ideas as to where best to take it and roughly how much it will cost? I'm based in melbourne

Should i bother with a heavy duty or just a standard replacement?

Any suggestions welcomed

How hard do you drive it?
I usually find PBR clutches to be good, and I drive fairly hard but don't ride the clutch.

Re: AU Xr6 Clutch Recomendation

go the Daikin one - the friction plate is about as big as you can possibly fit, so it has a lot of torque handling capacity, and the weight is perfect, i put one in my car after the 'heavy duty' one died, it would have cost me less to get the daikin clutch when i first got the car instead of waiting for it to wear out, as the 'heavy duty' one managed to destroy every single clutch component in the car before it wore out (cable, pedal box, firewall etc).

get the Daikin one its brilliant!

Thanks Rollin, I spoke to Mick Webb from SVO who also suggested the Daikin heavy duty kit
