    get the courtenay up-rated road clutch about £300 for that (its only another £50 more then a standard VX clutch)

    and i would would have thought about £200-£250 beause they got to drop the sub-frame and gearbox

    would could get a lightened fly-wheel at the same time - another £300ish

    These was the prices on my GSi beause i broke my gearbox and this is how much it cost me!

    not a cheap thing to do fella!

    well talking to paul@regal looks like best way is vxr clutch/plate and flywheel,
    the flywheel is a killer as like as just phoned vaux and they said £500 fot it

    Regal did mine the end of last year. Uprated setup was about £670 fitted. The OEm clutches are very prone to slipping after a good regging or power increase. Treat them gently for a while and they come back into shape. The last 2 years after the runs down the strip at PV mine has slipped then got better. Think it was the RWYB day last year that finally killed mine lol
