What's up with it? I'm not sure what differences there are between the stages, drivability wise?

It's a six puck so has harsh engagement and a strong pressure plate. I've snapped 5 drive shafts with this clutch.

Iif you don't heal and toe perfectly you can lock the wheels when the clutch engages. I blame this clutch (and my driving) for my recent failed diff.

Each to their own and all, I just don't like it

How much power are you running? a puck disc is very harsh and was told to not go near them unless you like heavy and unforgiving clutch's.

I ran the standard original clutch, SC at 125k and still had the same clutch, now on 134k and i decided to change it because of 2 reasons, 1. demon tweeks had a great deal on the CC stage 2 and 2. it was slipping at the top end when you unloaded then loaded back up when on uneven roads.

My standard clutch held up fine even with 2 tracks days and 2 rolling road days. Bare in mind though i never launched my car, always rolling starts.
