Anyone know where I can get the MBK-7223HDCB clutch?

kudosmotorsports have them but I'm not interested in a place that I can't call and HAVE to use paypal.

Any other suggestions? Prices?

I've used Kudos and met Andrew personally. You can trust them!

But I wouldn't recommend a HDCB, as both mine have shuddered badly when changing at high rpms (e.g. drag racing).

Just get a standard HD, or maybe try the normal button (HDB) if you're brave :D

Or, get an Evo kit like VR-04-TT and Gly, apparently they work really well.

cheers

I love the thought of the Evo kit. Is it a straight bolt on? Are there any other mods that need to occur (flywheel etc)? Which Evo clutch would I be looking at?

I'm sure someone can link me to previous convos on this. I can't look for it right now (at work).

Help is much appreciated.

I spoke to Jim Berry at Race Clutch today after reading many good things about him and his products over the past 6-7 years. End result is I have ordered one of his evo 8 clutch kits. It is not a cushion button (Jim would not recomend one), but a modified pressure plate with carbontic clutch plate. I had heard that Jim likes to talk clutches, and well I would have to agree after nearly an hour on the phone.
I obviously cannot comment on the product personally yet, but hopefully will have it in within 3-4 weeks time permitting.
Google jim berry clutch, have a read around different forums, and have a chat with Jim yourself.

Just another option for everyone.

Don't get the HDCB. There's been a few of us that have had problems and, while some haven't, it's just not worth the risk at the end of the day when a sports organic is around the same price.

This Jim Berry one sounds good too.

Will be delivered for just under $1000.

That is a lot better than the $1200 that extreme quoted me for their cushion button.

I was chaged $550 not including flywheel machining. I can't remember the total as I got other things done at the same time.

The Sports Organic is button? Not interested. I need some "slip" for street driving.

Never heard of an organic button before...can't see that lasting long.

The sports organic is a sprung centre and is be fine for everyday driving.

If you want slip you shouldn't be considering the HD, HDC, or HDCB as they're all semi-ceramic and shouldn't be slipped regardless.
