[s-cars] WAS: Ball bearing turbo NOW: Centerforce clutch

The reason the clutch disc is not sprung is because the clutch kit is
meant for the stock dual mass flywheel.

Well Dave,

When I opened the box from Centerforce yesterday, I was a bit
disappointed to see a new version of my old clutch, still with
unsprung hub. Yes, part number matches up with yours, DF074006.
Regardless it's going into the car Saturday morning.

I wonder what clutch disk/hub you are running in your car (since it is
NOT what comes with the normal kit for our cars), and if that might be
a reason for some of the slippage you are seeing at the strips.

Also, for those shopping for a upgraded clutch kit, I have nothing but
praise for Summit Racing and Centerforce. I called Summit on Wednesday
19th at 1pm to order the clutch, and it arrived on Thursday the 20th,
and only cost $20 to ship Next Day Air (drop ship from Centerfroce).
Summit's price was also $100 cheaper than any local dealer.
