There might be minute differences between a supra clutch and the clutch that comes in this kit. In the thread you referenced the person got the supra clutch and supra pressure plate so the mating surfaces or tolerances are the same.

The poster that was asking if they could use a supra clutch I am assuming wanted to use the pressure plate that had the lighter than OEM feel with a different clutch and I dont think you can do that???

Why would you go OEM when you can get a STG2 clutch that holds better power, without the noise and has the same factory peddle pressure?

People stop re-inventing the wheel. It's not necessary when we have a full fledged kit with everything you need for a proper installation. There is a reason why we have sold over 100 of these with no issues and the owner of the company has had an IS300 with this very same setup.

Thank you.

... what's the point of having a clutch rated for twice the power your cars putting out and save $200 going 'OEM' with the Supra setup?

Whats the point of paying more for an OEM clutch from Lexus that is made of organic materials that dont last as long?

The reason why its rated for more power is because the higher pressure plate rating and far superior friction material. This allow the clutch to be applicable to those who want OEM reliability/comfort and those looking for something that can handle spirited driving characteristics.

If you have a clutch system that is less money than lexus, drives like a factory Lexus clutch and is a proven reliable system.... hmm.... why wouldn't you go with it?

Thanks.

The supra setup is an 'OEM' alternative and $200 less than this kit on my end. I'll be going with that setup instead of this.

The beautiful thing about a free country is that you can build what ever you would like. I'm sure it works beautifully but for those customers that want a more comprehensive setup that doesn't need to be pieced together and wants a total solution, THMotorsports is here to help. For a proven clutch kit with a longer life expectancy than the oem disk you're using, please contact us for further details.

Thank you.

Hey THM,

I wasnt trying to reinvent the wheel but trying my best to give clarification. I like the kit and I am thinking about purchasing it just waiting on funds and time.

Just curious lets say that someone has put on significant mileage on this setup and the clutch and pressure plate are not in stock could we used a different clutch and pressure plate with this flywheel? If so which one?

Stick with the same components from the same kit. Very rare for this not to be in-stock.

I don't understand why i had to wait almost 6 weeks for my flywheel clutch combo when these were in stock. I guess It's too late to do anything about it now.
