    no, I'm poor, it's a long term investment for best bang for the buck (well, besides going back to dealer and have them change it under warranty)

    if carbon plates last at least 2 times longer than metal (where ATS&ACROSS claims carbon is 10x more durable), i will save quite a bit installing labor, every clutch job is $500+ for my car and my stock clutch only last 10000 track/touge miles

    please correct me if I'm wrong.
    i think multi-disc design usually have smaller diameter discs. This will allow engine to rev more freely and allow better throttle response because the mass are closer to the center. But it is very easy to stall from a standing start because of the lack of inertial. and they are usually more pricey compare to single disc.

    Hmmm...no wonder I keep on stalling when I first got my Lambo.
    The car keep on wanting to jump forward every time I release the pedal from 1st gear.

    I don't think dealers will cover clutch. It's consider wear and tear like tires and/or brakes.

    i just ordered a new clutch and flywheel. not carbonetic one though because it is too expensive. but it should be a pretty good one. I'll keep u updated when the mailman shoves the thing in my mailbox.
