    it depends on how many kms and the way you drive too

    Indeed. I'm on 207KW and standard clutch. However, an Exeddy R Spec is ready and waiting....

    i had 80kms on the clock and it starting slipping on boost. I changed it and realised it was the first clutch it had had. Put an Exedy paddle clutch in her. Now really good and can be given lots but in reality fitting the standard one would have been good for another 30-40kms I reckon. At least with the paddle you never smell it overheating and never have to worry about it. Makes for much more drifting fun too.

    Do still get a little paddle judder sometimes though which is anoying

    With a paddle clutch you can get an amount of judder as you don't have a complete 360deg contact. Rather you have 3 x 45deg - ish (in the exedy example) paddles. As these grip and slip then you get a slight judder. Basically its because there isn't much provision for slipping it.

    With some paddle clutches it can be really bad. With the exedy one though its pretty good but you do still get it. Just need to change the way you drive a little. Its worse when the flywheel and input shaft have a low speed differential and on the S15 when changing down because of the dual mass flywheel I guess.
