After some thorough testing and some track time we are proud to say that our clutch flywheel & package is going in to production. It includes a new billet steel flywheel and custom clutch that weighs in at 22.95 lbs. We were a bit concerned with how it would affect quarter-mile times but we did set a new record of 13.29 @ 100.87 this last weekend so that theory can be thrown out. Pedal effort is somewhat increased due to the increased clamping force(1800lb) but still very streetable. Look for this setup to sell for $799 in the near future.

Forgot to mention that this clutch is shifting at 8200 rpm wth no problems. This actually the main reason we began development on a new clutch setup, because those of you that race know that any of the aftermarket clutches do not shift past 7400-7600 rpm(this includes ACT, clutch masters, centerforce.)

its a billet pressure plate guys

the ONLY clutch available that ACTUALLY has an aftermarket pressure plate, unlike the rest of the clutches who just paint the stock plates

this thing has about 1800lb of clamping, and trust me, it wont slip.

It felt a bit stiffer, but a nice feeling.

The design of it is so, that even though its as light as a fidanza flywheel with stock clutch, it doesnt loose as much momentum due to weight positioning, unlike my car that looses all its momentum on shifts, hell, i cant even chirp 2nd gear(good thing boost will solve it all)

But this clutch obviously works, that guy dennis is an insane mofo, you should see this oldschooler drive, its like he has viagra for driving or something
Hell, [email protected] N/A, stock block, aint 1/2 bad

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The clutch is thicker and the flywheel is thinner so they have to be sold together.

crappy. only a 14.36 @ 90.53. Power was way off. We tuned it at 4000ft and the track was at 300ft. We added 24lb injectors and an air meter and now it pulls strong.

22 lbs.? Why not lighter? Or would that be a bad thing? Rotational mass sort of deal?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">9lb flywheel tends to kill momentum on shifts, the chirping youre getting is NOT power related, its everything spinning fast, and heavy

That is about 13-15lbs lighter than stock. I dont know if you would want to go much lighter.

Here is a pic.


BTW, this is an SFI approved setup.
