Looking forward to installing it. I tried 3 day shipping for $61

Thanks for the advice guys
Do you have any chatter on take off?

What kind of flywheel are you running?

If the disc is of a puck design you are going to have chatter until you perfect the throttle to clutch ratio on take off...about 9 out 10 take offs for me is chatter free...

this is 100% true. i am getting chatter pretty often but then again i am not used to it yet. on some of my launches i get none when i get the gas/clutch ratio down.

the lighter flywheel also makes a big difference on take off. it needs more gas to not stall/chatter

CC stage 5 sprung hub (4 puck) a little more aggressive than the 6 puck

Bingo...its all about the ratio...just give it a lil extra gas until your super comfortable...little extra gas guarantees no chatter, but you might get funny looks, lol

Should have it tomoro and i will post my results and experience. I hope to master the clutch sooner than later

What stage is the 6 puck?

Have you had a stage 5 and the 6 puck (stage ?) to compare?
