stage 3 clutch

hey guys, i just looked at a nice ta ill probably end up buying, i just had a couple questions about the clutch the guy just put in. he said its a stage 3 6 puck ceramic clutch (idk what brand tho...) anyways, hes only put around 350 miles on it, and when i drove it, i stalled it the first time (ive driven stick for a long time, never felt a clutch like this before) basically, as soon as it gets about half way out, it grabs without mercy, no forgiveness at all... so my question is, is this just how performance clutches are, or will it break in a little over time and become a little more driveable? i think ill probly get the car regardless, i was just curious. thanks guys!

Thats just how a puck design clutch is. I wouldn't hesitate to pull it out and put in a Spec 3+, those are beautiful works of art.

yeah the 3 is pretty rough, thats why i opted for the 3+ it is as he said a work of art. coupled that with a nice billet aluminum flywheel from spec too...its a wet dream come true to drive.

isnt that set up overkill, unless your making good horsepower, maybe not true I think I read it somewhere.

this guy installed it with the intentions of doing a rear mount in the near future, so that may be true, but he would have needed it eventually. i ended up getting an auto car, so ill keep yall updated!!
