By changing to a gear drive we were able to reduced chatter while improving shifting. QM has also made some changes to the friction materials to extend the life of these 8 leg clutches by up to 30%, that's about 1/3 more passes per clutch! the QM 8 Leg Race Clutch is rated for 900ft/lbs
PLEASE NOTE: THE HYDRAULIC RELEASE BEARING IS NEEDED!!!
We offer an install kit for the 5 speed HRB option that includes 4 bolts and an alignment tool.
great choice for looking to make over 450 tq
Car: 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution MR

There are a lot of mixed reviews out there for this clutch and throw-out bearing. All of the reviews are correct... There is a lot of rattling and squealing from this clutch. It's slightly worse than the ACT 6-puck I previously had. The pedal feel is lighter than stock, with very low modulation (you don't want to slip this clutch, it won't really let you). High speed shifts are extremely smooth! You can drive this clutch in traffic, but you must drive the proper way: don't slip the clutch to move along slowly, don't slip the clutch to keep your position on a hill, and pay attention to take-off from start or it will mostly likely stall out. Since those are all normal rules for driving a manual it shouldn't be a problem.
The throw-out bearing for the Evo 6-speed has 3 bolt holes that aren't used. The bearing mounts around the transmission output shaft using a bushing. I haven't noticed any problems from that, but I don't like the idea of anything inside my transmission not being bolted down...especially something that close to the rotating clutch assembly.
The kit did not include a clutch alignment tool. The hydraulic fittings do not work with the stock Evo clutch line. The starter motor requires a shim to prevent it from continuously being engaged with the flywheel (shim not included in the kit). There are no installation instructions for the kit.
So far I like the clutch, but I can't give it a glowing recommendation considering all of the missing pieces in the kit.
I love this clutch!!
Around town driving isn't difficult, but takes some getting used to. With all of the sound deadening on an X, the clutch shatter isn't very noticeable inside the cabin. I have put 20+ passes and 1500 miles and haven't had to shim it yet. The only complaint I can give about this clutch is when you let off the clutch it makes a squall noise. If you are at the power level that requires a clutch of this caliper, this is the the best value.
I had the 6leg version before this one, and it was a bit of a pain to DD. It was finally time to upgrade, and upgrade I did. This is by far the best clutch I have ever had in the evo. Ability to hold 600+tq, and is very streetable. The engagement is much better than the 6leg, and decel noise is almost all gone. Overall I would say this clutch is only a little more harsh when compared to a Exedy Twin. The pedal feel is amazing with the HTOB. High RPM shifting is butter smooth. The clutch does cheerp a little when leaving from a stop, and when the clutch pedal is pressed the plates still rattle a little, same for every multi plate system.
