i always ran the stock non-hydraulic type myself with zero problems.

Most racing ones don't move far enough to disengage a stock clutch. Check with the manufacturer or a reputable dealer (someone who sells both) before you buy.

hey richard, it's wes. the stock release bearing/stock fork with a hydraulic slave cylinder is the cheapest most reliable way to go. i'll help you set it up when you get the car back from the chassis shop. give me a ring. later.......

use the stock hydraulic throwout it is the only way to go very easy to setup and no more adjusting after that and no forks or anything to bend or break so if you get hit you can still use the clutch
