    im debating between the centerforce and the king cobra myself.
    anyone tried both?

    im looking for a soft clutch pedal and that doesnt chatter or on/off only like the spec's

    centerforce df is the way to go a little more costly but cluch effort is a little better and the grip is better than the king cobra I have had both for the price the king cobra is all you need with your boltons but not with drag slicks radials is about as far as you want to push the king cobra

    I say if you want an easy feeling clutch go with the Centerforce, but I love my King Cobra it just took a little time to get used to!

    Maybe, but the Flywheels are proven to be good.

    What year talon did you have? I used to have a 93 TSI I miss that thing at times. Wasnt as quick as my stang and not having rwd wasnt as fun but I wish I could have it again just to mess around with.

    I have seen aluminum fidanza flywheels on ebay for 280 if I remember right.
