Clutch help


Hey guys, i'm getting some stuff together for the planned SR20 swap and i'm down to the clutch. I'm looking at the HKS GD Pro Twin Plate Clutch Kit but it looks as if it's designed more for drag than drift. Which the clutch will be getting plenty of abuse. The other option? SPEC D clutch system for the S13 SR20. Designed for clutch kicks while the HKS is designed for 600hp. Soooo...anyone have any info on these? Used them? Know the brand? Stuff like that. Car's a 97 Nissan 240sx(kouki) and will be used for drift with a bit of drag and auto-x. HP range will be anywhere from 320-370.

Thanks

I would go with the SPEC D, but my personal prefs are ACT, but not sure about applicability for the 240sx, just my opinion at this!

How can a clutch be for "drifting" and not drag racing?

www.Google.com Search for 240sx forums.

If youre talking about http://www.240sxforums.com/ I've already have them on my bookmarks

And drag clutches are designed to hold more power when starting out. AKA rev it like hell then pop. Drift clutches are designed for clutch kicks. AKA like in the other thread when I said to downshift. Do it when going fast enough and downshift right before a turn; you will upset traction in the rear tires and can go into a slide.

No. It's just a big conspiracy against you.

I prefer Exedy clutches myself. Don't know if they have them for your particular appliction though. If you're building a drift car, you should look into replacing the flywheel, drive shaft, half shafts, and differential as well. All that HP and torque is great till something snaps.

they sell many stuff for the 240sx as well as many sr20det parts
Also will this car be for daily driving?

becasue i you go for a more aggressive clutch and it is alos your daily driver you might not want to go with a 6 puck or other crazy clutch beciause the clutch chater and harsh engagements that come along woulf make normal driving annoying

the ACT street clutches they have on enjuku look to be nice

but they also have those spec stage 2 which will also be cool

and also I see you lookign into the s14a. where do you live? bec emissions might be kinda hard to pass bec 97's are OBD2

what do you plan on running on the engine? upgraded injectors and such? i want details

and i would atleast on looking to getting a LSD or atleast make sure you get a n s14a with a vlsd. i wouldn't worry about the driveshafts or halfshafts because i haven't heard anything bad about the stock ones except that their heavy

Man i know way too much about 240's! i dont even have my lisence yet! all i do is read these forums or 240sxforums.com

Its just a mater of time before i get one and i WILL have one mwahahahah....

Oh I know. This is going to be a S13 redtop SR20DET with a LOT of saving up to do. I mean, seriously, about 10-13k is going to be going into this.

So far this is what I have setup for engine mods, things in bold are things I am still somewhat unsure of.

S13 SR20DET Red Top
Blitz nur spec-R or HKS Hi-Power Exhaust
Blitz LM Series Intercooler
SPEC D clutch
KAAZ LSD
Walbro Fuel Pump
B&M Short Throw Shifter
Blitz Downpipe
Greddy Type R BOV or Blitz SS BOV
Flex-a-lite Fans
Oil and Fuel Filter
Koyo Aluminum Radiator
Fidanza Flywheel
NGK iridium Spark Plugs
Test Pipe
GReddy/Trust T67 Turbo Upgrade
Apexi Power FC w/ Commander
Used 300zx MAF Sensor with Plug
Apexi Power Intake
Tomei 740cc Side Feed Injectors
Tomei Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
Greddy Oil Pan Kit
Custom 1.18mm Metal Head Gasket
ARP SR20DET Cylinder Head Studs
HKS 264 Step 2 Camshafts
Greddy Rocker Arm Stoppers
Ferrea Titanium Valve Spring Kit
Greddy Intake Plenum
Greddy Cold Pipe for Greddy Intake Plenum

If pulled off and have the ECU tweaked properly this engine *will* force out close to 500hp.

Interior gauges/electronics and what not are going to be running Blitz BLM mainly.

Yes, they're heavy. They're also weak for applications other than mild "street racing" if that's what you want to call it. Personally I think race cars should be only driven at the track, and have no place on public roads. What you hear and what really happens is two completely different things. You think people are going to willingly admit they dumped $16 000 into their engine and tranny's only to neglect the rear end and have it fail on them? 90% of the time a failed rear end will cause the engine to over rev. , and you'll end up spending more in the end than to do it right in the first place.
