Default Broken clutch rod

I asked for advice in last post on a carbon fiber clutch. I actually meant a Kevlar clutch. Can anybody make a recommendation on a brand and supplier?

Also, it seems the clutch rods are a problem on most Diablos after the 1995 redesign, leaving you stuck on the side of the road. Can someone direct me to a replacement/upgrade of this part? Thanks

The Custer rods are golden. I have them on both my cars. As far as the clutch, I don't launch my cars so don't need it.
