    I had a 6 paddle bronze clutch on my Z. To be honest I never really noticed the judder at all... Held the power nicely though

    Couldn't explain the tech, but here's some pics.

    Organic - heavier pedal, but still progressive and manageable




    Paddle - heavy, sensitive pedal, takes getting used to the sudden bite (as in stalling frequently to start with).



    Basically, if you use the car everyday and don't plan onrunning more than 310bhp at the wheels, get an organic.

    oooh.. that's my 6 puck clutch disk... exactly that one :P

    I'd agree with the above on getting used to though... a real pain in the .... when driving in heavy traffic especially on a hill.. basically letting off at anything less than about 2500 rpm with the 6 puck clutch and it will stall on my Z...

    It was still my daily driver though, and it doesn't take long to get used to it... just remember to leave enough space in front before starting off

    Not good for manoeuvring into on-road parking spaces...

    Fortunately the car is in the US, there are no such parking places as nobody has a clue how to parallel park!

    So if you go above 310rwhp, do you have to go paddle, or are the organic ones that will take you past this stage
