    This is pretty darn cool! I even like the satin black panels. What you thinking paint wise, or is it a secret?

    What don't you like about it? Too heavy or just the on/off feel? I switched from an Act Extreme organic to an RPS 6 puck paddle and have never looked back. The RPS is a little on/off but I very quickly got used to it. What I do like is how much lighter the engagement is and how much abuse it can take. It has literally never skipped a beat. Having said that it's been on the car a while now so I could do with a nice new one

    Keep it like this. It looks ard!

    haha cheers mate

    the pedal is just really hard and the engagement is either on or off there is no in between, I am looking at changing it to the street sprung disc, rather than the 6 paddle? its just horrid to move from a standstill, iv just looked on ACT website and it does say aggressive engagement which isn't really what im looking for

    It'll make it lighter, but not less grabby

    just found online that the 300zx slave will make the pedal lighter so il see if I can find one and try that first, if I can get the pedal right then I could possibly live with the grabby clutch but the pedal is rather firm at the minute

    Worth a shot. All I'll say is the ACT Extreme Organic I had before the paddle was twice as hard to depress. It was horrible. RPS paddle is heavier than stock fosho but not by much.

    just found one of these, the bore of the slave is quite big so should help with making the pedal smoother..

    il give the 300zx one a go and if not then il look into this http://www.cncbrakes.com/Product.asp...305&subseries=
