A little over 3 years and not quite 50K miles. Replaced cylinder twice and the little spring three times. No real issues other than some noises when the adjustment starts to go out.

I plan to switch to the ZSpeed CMAK because it does not require any adjustments, and the cylinder itself appears to be more sturdy than the Z1 slave cylinder.

The Z1 kit is poorly engineered in my opinion. I've installed many Zspeed CSC's and a few Zspeed CMAK kits. the ZSpeed kit is far better engineered. I still prefer their Tilton CSC to keep things simple, but for those looking to convert to a pivot system the Zspeed would be the way to go.

OSGiken makes a kit using some JDM and USDM Nissan parts to be used with their twin disk clutch kits but i haven't had a chance to install one of those kits so can't comment on it, I'm sure it's high quality as OSGiken has never failed to impress.

I chose to be proactive and not wait. This way you can drive with confidence and plan those spirited driving trips without worry. I didn't want to deal with all the BS of a failure and it happening at the worst time.

I was lucky enough to win a free Z1 Clutch, unsprung hub and lightweight flywheel at the Z Nationals event this year. When I called Z1 to claim the parts I decided to throw down the cash for the CSC elimination kit. It just didn't make sense to not do it. Once I have the cash to purchase an upgraded master cylinder, Z1 transmission mount and Mtec shifter springs, I will install everything all at once.
