My clutch is on its last legs so im thinking of getting it out before it gets real bad. The current clutch is soooo heavy sometimes and others its not to bad (wierd , any ideas why) - it just gets to the point i just hate changing gears , so im after ideas on what type/brand clutch to install that will be light.

Daikin do a very nice clutch with a huge friction plate but still nice and light pressure plate, so it grips like sh!t to a blanket but its still nice and light, i put one in my car in about march i think (have a look at other clutch threads...there are heaps and heaps on here) and it rips!
by the way i also have that wierd problem where sometimes the clutch is stiffish (but only very very slightly so) and then others its smooth and light as...i dont think its the actual clutch, i might be due to heat in the cable or something...weird...and it seems to get lighter if i thrash it for a little bit??? WTF?

There are variouse presure plates some go over centre and when fully pushed in the pedal gets heaps lighter and other get or keep getting heavy..It depends on the pivot point on the diaphram sping..Another trick if you are game is to extend the clutch fork by another 20mm gives you some leverage and helps on firewall etc..
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

I'm not sure on the manufacturer, but I believe Centerforce makes a pressure plate with weights on the the "fingers" of the diaphragm near the center to help maintain a relatively soft pedal while still getting great clamping force. Centrifugal force acts on the weights, making the pedal as light as stock without sacrificing clamping force.

I have a Daiken sitting here ready to go into my EB when I do my T5 conversion. If they are as good as you make out Rollin, I'll be extremely happy! One thing I've noticed is the Gregories states they are a 6 spring driven plate but my version is only 4 spring. How does this effect clutch performance?
