Stage 2 Daily - 350 ft lbs
Made from Organic Materials and offers very smooth engagement at the cost of lower torque capacity.
The heavy duty pressure plate features increased clamp load without increasing pedal pressure. The disk is made from an organic material with high metal content which increases its co-efficient of friction over the OEM disk. This clutch maintains stock feel while offering more strength and durability.
- Mazdaspeed 3/Mazdaspeed 6
I have a 2010 Mazdaspeed 3, at 176K miles I was over due for an upgraded clutch. A clutch replacement is usually one of those parts that you choose by word of mouth. There is generally no ability for the consumer to try it before they buy it. I was lucky enough to have the pleasure being exposed to other clutch kits with friends that were on the same platform. That being said I knew what I did not want. I have only read good things about Southbend Clutch. It has not disappointed me at all. I'm impressed by the pedal feel, and engagement. It is very close to stock. It does not have a clicky feel with each pedal engagement. It is smooth. I only vaguely notice faint chatter when I back into my sloped driveway at low speeds. In forward gears the pedal feel is similar to how it felt when the car was brand new and the clutch wasn't broken in. So effort is slightly stiffer. The packaging and build quality is top notch. It's beautifully made. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase. I recommend Southbend clutch to anyone needing an upgrade.
Great so far for a daily driver replacement
Needed a replacement without the chatter I heard of, and not wanting to destroy my knees while shifting. Chose this, and am happy as can be. Very good product so far, and they have an online registration on their website, no card!
