Paging Professor Bender and others with F1 clutch kits

Alright so driving back from school tonight, i noticed peculiar vibrations and noises when I especially shift to a higher gear under low speeds.. Thought nothing of it earlier today, because it would be intermittent then go away after certain rpm's... It progressively started to get worse and now it vibrates through majority of 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear.. It kinda confirmed my assumption that the clutch just shat on me over the course of a day ..

Weird thing is that I can be in first gear and floor it, and it would hesitate to pick up for a second then start picking up just fine. That doesn't add up to me


Anyway, the real purpose of this thread is to collect reviews of those who have the ebay F1 racing clutch. Thankfully they offer this kit for my e30, and i'm inclined to purchase it instead of an oem kit? There is a guy selling a brand new oem sachs kit (clutch disk, pp, tob, pilot bearing, alignment tool, and lube) for $200 shipped


Heres the ebay kit:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/F1-RACING-ST...ht_3072wt_1396


EDIT: And just to add.. I wasn't doing a damn thing allll winter break, and was wasting my time instead of doing anything productive. I find it funny that my car brings up this shyt on my FIRST day going back to school. Eff this

You may proceed

No question get the f1 kit! But get a higher stage because the one you posted can only hold 220 ft pounds.

They drive just like stock too. What about a lighter flywheel?

hmm ill see if there's a stage 2 kit for the same price. thing is although i do beat the hell out of my car, at the end of the day i still have my stock e30 tranny so it won't be able to handle so much power anyway lol.

and i just checked under the car right now to make sure its nothing else such as the guibo our a busted tranny mount but it was all in tact ..

false call.. its not related to my clutch.. its speed related. when it reaches around 40mph everything starts skaking. put the car in neutral and still shakes so now me n randy are thinking its the diff.. other than that i dont see what else it could be if its speed related and its not the motor/tranny.

we recorded a drive, in which randy will kindly post by tonight
