    New Gen 3 Clutch

    Hey Guys,

    My clutch started giving signs that it was going (63hrs on the dash). So I brought my ski to Riva and was going to put the Damper.
    When I arrived there they advised me to go with the new Gen 3 clutch, since that saves me 800$ on the Damper I was happy.

    My question is does anyone already have some hours on this new Gen 3 clutch?
    If yes with what kind of boost wheels?
    And are these gen 3's any good for high boost?

    It's still fairly new so there's not a lot of long term results yet. Dustin Farthing is running that combo on his race ski, and it has been holding up to he abuse he puts it through.

    How did getting the clutch and damper together save you $800?

    I just got the gen 3 clutch not the Damper since the damper doesn't fit on the Gen 3 clutch.
    So the 800$ I saved was that of the Damper that I didn't have to buy.
    Happy to hear it's holding up to MR Farthing his abuse, what kind of wheel is he running?

    Ok, got ya. My clutch died after an hour or so of running the C3 wheel with my r3. Although I was a little wild on the throttle.

    I believe we have a similar setup except for the C3 and the Skat.
    Can I ask what kind of speeds are you seeing with that setup?
