Choosing a clutch - MX7, 300rwkw

MX7 Gear Box, RB30ET, Should have aprox 300rwkw, Street use, Occasional 1/4...

Done a few searches and just want some advice before i go ahead... Anyone recomend anywhere else? Whats my best option out of these 2...

1 - Race Brakes - $1350.00, 9.5" Fly Wheel, Sprung Button MotorSport Clutch.
2- Zeds -$1250, 9.5 Fly Wheel, Cusion Button Exeddy Clutch.
3- Keith Shelton Racing - 9562 6632, Cant get in contact, no answer, engaged.
4- Jim Berry - $1047 + $220 Fly Wheel, Exeddy GTR Rebuilt, 6 Truck Button, Carbonics. 3200LB (Full Monty clutches currently unavailable and unsure till hell be able to get them atm) He also said i can probly get my own fly wheel from a wreckers and just get it a surface grind?

Or CSL-FLY has a thread to swap a r33 box and his JB clutch for a MX7 set-up plus cash, may be worth seeing how much cash he want's on top? Stronger box to hold the 300rwkw + an awesome clutch = less hassle's in the long run. That's right the poor man does pay twice.

I had one built a few years back now. custom built with centreforce weights, only cost me around $400. Has held up with genuine 300rwkw with no trouble so far, but its not a daily driver.

---------- Post added 14-04-11 at 21:10 ----------

Has anyone pics of these Full Monty clutches. Just wondering where the money goes on one of these.

2nd that i have a NPC twin plate. Cost a fair bit but works extremely well. Did 10 runs the other week at the drags with 6000rpm launches. No issues not to mention the countless powerskids.

you dont need pics to prove justify the money on a jim beryy full monty. all i need to say is... WHONXT, genuine 730rwhp, over 2 years, same clutch, untouched, never a problem.

yeah fair enough. you also forgot to mention the r33 gts stock box but this wont help this bloke. his looking for a mx7 clutch

northern brake and clutch in kensington will sort you out a clutch for about $400 that will hold about 320rwkw.

I had an npc solid centre brass button in my old skyline which lasted years with probably 500+ 2nd and 3rd gear limiter drops and 20-30 drift days/powercruises and street abuse and never slipped once.
