Pfft exedy are crap at best. Talk to Jim Berry and get him to make you one up, he should be able to do something for $700, just tell him what you were hoping to spend

By the time you send up for clutch to Jim Berry & receive it will probably be a couple of weeks lol. I don't know. But if your after a clutch quickly only other option would be exedy or xtreme.

im currently running a "direct" (brand) twin plate, cost slightly under the price of a jb twin plate/flywheel package for a similar thing. i believe direct are the suppliers of parts to exedy or the other way round (its purple lol). anyway, havent had any problems yet, probably should have gone JB for the piece of mind, but i can say that i have launched it once or twice and have really hit into gears hard with it and theres no sign of wear yet. however its not a greatly streetable clutch, quite heavy and very grippy.

it wasnt for a RB it was a 408ci LS2, when the clutch was dumped on gear cnage at 6000rpm centrifugal force was holding the fingers in, so the clutch wouldnt engage, swapped to a Mal wood clutch and its perfect.
