    It's a fantastic bit of kit. It does rattle a very small bit and pedal seems a little heavy. But boy when the clutch bites its fantastic. Highly recommended. Thanks s3alex for advice. Been to Brighton today and met Nigel nhn. He fitted white dis clocks and needle sweep. But he showed me his motor now I want rns mk2 and facelift front end and facelift console switches etc etc. bloody Nigel. Lol. Great to meet you had a fab morning. Well worth the 3.30am start and 420 mile round trip. See you soon with my new list of thing for you to sort out for me.

    For what you get I think it's reasonable.

    The gearbox will break before that clutch does.

    So is your pedal a bit harder to push down. As I was a little concerned at first But I am surprised about the lack of rattling at tick over. I thought it would be a lot louder. It is there but very quiet. But its a great bit of quality kit. Even the garage that fitted said they have never seen such a well built clutch kit. And said if I break it I must be an idiot lol.

    I'd had a Sachs before this,so the feel wasn't really any heavier,and compared to an AP paddle clutch on one of my Cosworths,this thing is light.

    It does grumble a bit on idle,but you have to add in that my engine is mostly rebuilt,and running pretty hard engine and gearbox mounts,so all of that allows a lot more thrash through than maybe yours would.

    As for quality.....it's as you and your garage said...really well made,and solid.

    Now fitted full interior led kit from flea bay. All work great and look fantastic against the newly fitted white dis cluster. She's coming on leaps nd bounds.

    I know wot you mean s3alex had full paddle clutch on my race mini including full straight cut gearbox and straight cut drop gears and LSD was a night mate on the road but sounded absolutely awsome. But too old for that stuff now. Lol
