    Hey guys!

    I've got an m52b28 engine with about 240hp and i wonder what kind of clutch I should go for in the driftcar. I will be running the M20 flywheel and 618 sachs pressure plate. I had planned on going for a sprung 4 puck clutch, but a friend of mine tried to convince me not too as it would be more strain on the driveline and not necessary on that power level. This makes sense to me, but I don't want to buy an OEM clutch and ruin in after one day at the track either. I've read that the kevlar clutches is an upgrade from OEM but they are more sensitive to heat, and since this is a drift car the clutch will see some abuse. Would a 6 puck be a good comprmise?

    While I'm at it. Do I need the M20 throw out bearing as well? Will be running a 520i getrag gearbox.

    Paddle clutch would probably last longer, but you might find it damages the flywheel, especially if you're clutch kicking it too much.
