Alrighty fellow gearheads lol. My clutch is starting to slip up a little, and being at 110k miles is due for replacement and first on my list of things to tackle for the year. I'm torn between the flying miata happy meal and the 949 supermiata. I was debating the twin clutch but don't think it matches up with my long-term goals. So, if money were no object and drivability wasnt an issue(I'll be driving a whopping 20-30 miles a week), what clutch replacement would you go with. I had always planned on the flying miata, but heard they were having install issues recently.

Wow, quite a jump.
How much power you playing with ?

Stock nb2 at the moment, but planning on going forced induction or swapping the engine(really like how the k series swap is looking) around the end of next year with a goal of 200-250hp.

I had my choice of anything, and chose the ACT 6-pad sprung clutch and HD pressure plate. Feels maybe 30% more pedal effort than stock, and still not harsh. I chose it for hillclimb launchability, but it's surprisingly streetable. Good for over 300 ft./lbs. Goodwin has it as a kit for the 1.8

Cool, I've heard of the ACT but hadn't fostered it. I'll def look into it. Thanks for the recommendation.
