Xtreme Clutch - Test Drive?

Recommended Posts

I might be up for a new clutch as mine is acting up a bit - shuddering and squealing like a b!tch - more than usual but not sure exactly what's up until I get the gearbox dropped.

I was wondering whether there is anyone with a Xtreme 7 or 9 puck ceramic clutch in their car that I could take for a drive just to see exactly what it drives like? I live in Heathridge (NOR). I've heard some good things about them but I'd like to speak to someone who has upwards of 300+ rwhp (as does my r33).

I have a 9-puck & over 400 with no problems, still drives fine :)

That's what I like to hear :) How long have you had it installed?

Also - how much are the clutches for R33? and how much also to do get installed? Prices will differ depending on where it was done I assume.

Had it for about a year or maybe less now. 350rwhp when I got it, 385 for most of it & over 400 at the moment. Cost me around the $900 mark installed *I think*

The 9 puck with a 'sprung centre' friction plate and the stock pressure plate is very good. People frequently over-do the pressure plate. The clamping force on the stock R33 unit is quite sufficient for a street driven car. The friction plate does all the work it just needs 'enough' pressure to make it work.

The same 9 puck friction plate is in a friends 300+rwkw GTR and has covered 30,000kms of aggressive driving.

My old R33 I setup with the 9 puck friction plate and factory stock pressure plate, it feels exactly like stock. It was a low 13/high 12 car and at one stage had a 100+rwhp extra shot of nitrous before selling the kit off to 2rismo over east. So that was plenty of torque and power with no slip. Go extra clamping pressure for more aggressive sustained high rpm driving (like circuit or drift), the trade off is pedal effort and wear on the clutch components.

Bung a light weight chromemolly flywheel in while your at it.

i got a 9 puck extreme clutch put in about 2 months ago and feels pretty much stock except it springs back a little bit quicker. if you didnt know it was in i dont think you could tell plus i drive it on the street and its easy...the old man drove it and hes got a dodgy knee and found it alright so cant be too bad haha

depends how u drive it, my 9 puck was still goin strong after 70,000km's when it was flogged. As rev210 said chuck a light weight flywheel on at the same time, help preserve your driveline abit and add afew more horses.

thread revival. Just to reconfirm. It's pretty drivable day to day right?

Will be throwing in a lightened flywheel as well.

I might be getting it soon due to my clutch giving way.

Thanks :laugh:

    • I 100% agree that another intake setup would be better performing but I like the uniqueness it brings to the build. I am not paying someone to do the fabrication and this has become something I want to figure out. Call me stubborn for being sold a "bolt-on" adapter plate. The waterjet has been down so it was quicker to machine them. I had one of my machinists at work (who is enthusiastic about making car parts) to give me a hand over the weekend. We started with .75" scrap we had kicking around and profiled out the shape.  I transferred over the studs from the balance tube for a test fit. There is a slight interference caused by the distance between the top and bottom studs being off by .75mm. Not a huge deal as the split pins which locate the throttle bodies are on the bottom holes and they fit perfect. I just oversized the top holes on the ITBs to accommodate my stupid error in measurement You can see the difference in the ITB spacing vs the OEM RB20DET runner spacing here. The plan is to fill it with weld on the inside and weld on the outside as well. I can then smooth out the transition.  -Jordie 
    • You could add a larger reservoir to the heat exchanger circuit so can add ice when at the track. Where I was working at the time found adding a watertank/reservoir in boot of blown cars helped massively, less expensive than an interchiller kit but lost spare wheel well. Cars could do back to back runs with more consistant IATs. I fitted an interchiller and 4.9L whipple to a LS at a shop I was at and IATs were never a problem. 
    • Dont forget rotational mass weight saving is 3 to 1 also   But yes theoretically good, strong , light wheels for sure but also ive still buckles "best jap wheels" and sigh The overall combo youre building is strong 💪
    • Yeah, I'm gonna hit him up for some closeup photos of the journals/caps. Its at a decent price, especially since it has all the required parts for a complete cylinder head, minus the passenger rocker cover 🙃 I thought the same regarding the head not having oil. Its a camshaft, not a crankshaft? Surely the forces would be small enough that they couldn't do that much damage...
