This is because the resin melts and becomes almost like a lubricant rather than a bonding agent. Any increase in clamp load or clutch material coefficient of friction will increase the shock load to your gears.
This just might be my opinion but
stronger clamping force = more shock load
more shock load on an already weak tranny = bad for our cars!
It's only bad if you launch the car by dropping the clutch(and even the oem clutch might not save you).If you know how to slip the clutch and use a sprung clutch what shockload is there?
Southernwrx pm'd me and said it is an oem clutch
