A lot of people will install the wrong type of clutch system in a vehicle. Yes, the clutch system may be for that vehicle's make and model, but a Honda Civic that has been modified to the gills for a specific type of racing is not the same as a Chevy Cavalier used for driving to work or to the kid's ballgame.
Often, people are pressured into buying upgraded parts for their vehicle. If you're a racing fan and looking to upgrade your clutch system, make sure your vehicle can handle the modification. Just because you have a car that is known to be fast doesn't always mean that a racing clutch is applicable. Know your vehicles limits. Also, if your looking for just a replacement clutch, then stick with your original equipment manufacturer clutch. You will find that your vehicle will still shift as before, but not with the added cost.
