Default sirio rvs .12 clutch vs wc capricorn

I'm interested in how do these clutch kits compare each other since the sirio clutch looks like it's innovating the design of centax clutches, altough the capricorn is an amazing clutch, which one would you say perform better?

The Capricorn and IDM clutches are both copies of the last generation Sirio clutch and are made by Sirio.

Si I'd guess the new Sirio would be even better.

The two clutches are not the same !!!

Sirio Flywheel is made of 11S (alluminium)
Capricorn Flywheel is made of ERGAL

Sirio shoe plate is anodized alluminium
Capricorn shoe plate and spring stay (wce version) is made of Hard Coated Ergal

Capricorn Flyweights and Shoes are made by completely different materiale than sirio.

Last but not least... Capricorn Clutch IS NOT made by Sirio.

Thank's

I own both the Sirio and Capricorn clutch.. They both feel the same performance wise but the Cap finish and measurements are better.
