Hmmm... I seems this discovery does'nt yield the excitement I thought it would.
Has anyone heard of this Black Diamond mob?
Should I hold my breath till I get an answer?

while it could just be marketing speak, the fact that they mention 9Krpm burst strength and that they are "meant for high revving engines" seems promising compared to SPEC clutches which are generally completely unbalanced.

Black Diamond have been around in the U.K for a while and mainly specialised in aftermarket Brake discs/Pads.

They get fairly mixed reviews on the UKSaabs forum for their braking products but i never knew they produced clutches until i saw this thread.

Id probably be inclined to go with a more tried and tested manufacturer personally.

none of the spec/clutchnet bullshit issues.
