What's your application? For the price, Monkeywrenchracing offers a "snap your neck" racing clutch/flywheel. Their street-clutches and seperate flywheels and less than that. This Japanese supplier doesn't do international shipping?

GO with ACT and you wont go wrong. Never had a problem, good grab, a little more pedal pressure. Get the pressure plate and order the bolts for it too. While your in there change the throw-out bearing so no surprises later. Not an easy task. I did it with the clam on so lots of ass pain.

The ACT HD-SS we offer and lightweight flywheel is just perfect for the car. As Gunpilot says it grabs well, but really feels like a stock clutch in terms of driveability. A bit revvier with the flywheel, but no where sacrificing street manners. Even in the XP car where I have tried 6-7 different clutches from a custom 5.5" Tilton Button clutch, a couple 7.25" solids etc etc, now I use an XT-SS which is the same disc with a heavier pressure plate. Solid clutch discs just translate more shock load from the driveline into the stock gearbox.
