Clutch replacement

Hi everyone,
Looking ahead to when I need to replace the clutch and hope I can get some input from you guys.
1) I'm considering a Kevlar clutch from Gte Engineering and wondered what your thoughts are compared with a stock Ferrari clutch?
2) Also an alloy flywheel from Clutch Masters or the Aasco one from Ultrarev. Anyone tried either?
Is alloy better than the stock Ferrari one?
I put an alloy flywheel in my Carrera and noticed the difference immediately.
Thanks

I'm guessing that this question pertains to your 360 F1 car...
The OEM clutch works perfectly and can be set-up correctly with the factory tools and parameters. Anything else is just a crapshoot...

I have heard good things and horror stories regarding aftermarket clutch/flywheel setups. I think the question is: Are you willing to pay twice should it not work out with the aftermarket setup?

The consistency of a satisfactory result with aftermarket clutches in the F1 cars( if yours is) is dodgy. Most people are barely interested in spending the money once, let alone twice, if it proves to not work well in your car. As David just said, the odds are much greater that you will have a better ownership experience with an OEM clutch installed properly.

FERRARI 360 clutch replacement

Ok thanks for the replies.
You made my mind up so I've bought a Valeo complete clutch.
Now what about flywheel and gear ring etc.
What else may need replacement?

The only reason you would mess with the flywheel is if yours is warped or damaged. It is rare that they warp, so save your money and don't mess with it unless you have to.

Thanks for the replies.
What about the gear ring. Should I change it to the 6-bolt fixing.
