Default Spec Stage 1 Clutch for 1992 Miata

I just picked up a Spec Stage 1 Clutch for my Miata. Paid around $250 for it. Just curious if anyone here has used a Spec clutch, they are fairly popular from what I have read for Miata needing more grab over stock.

As too why I picked up a new clutch with up to 199+ ft. lbs of torque?? Well, we shall see...

I use a spec 2+ on my protege with a BP and it's been great so far. I've got about 30k on it. I blew my engine and tranny about 10k ago and I inspected it and it still looked brand new despite how hard I drive my car and multiple times at the track and whatnot.

Seems to be pretty in line with what I have heard. Except the blowing a tranny part.

It was kinda a collateral damage ordeal, where the rod broke open the block it split the tranny open where the slave bolts to. Shit luck right? Lol ImageUploadedBytapatalkreplace1369947267.933146.jpg

i beat the ever living dog shit out of the flyin miata stage 1, similar to the spec i believe. lasted 50000 very hard miles and never slipped once. only reason i found out it was about gone, i was selling the car and wanted the lightweight flywheel.
PS: was on a 200-220 hp turbo 1.6
