Default Aftermarket Clutch/Lightened Flywheel

I'm looking to get a higher performance clutch and lightened flywheel, what kind of set ups do you guys have? What do you recommend?

Thanks,
Scott

This setup is pretty good. I wish I would have gotten a slightly more agressive clutch. Once my starts to slip due to a poor launch, it is hard to get it back. The combo is also a little noisy.

Jeff,

What do you have done as far as mods? I was planning on getting the ACT clutch and a Exedy flywheel, but I dont want a slipping clutch since I'll be buying a NX kit later this year..

about 250# of weight reduction.

thats about it. I think my clutch slips because it is a full organic. I was tempted to get the dual friction and now I think it would have been a good idea.

I agree. There is some concern with the modular aluminium flywheels coming part.

The single piece chromoly ones dont do that.

My car has 24,000 miles on it and it started acting odd today, it seems like the clutch is slipping, the cars jerky, the takeup point is lower, are these signs of a failing clutch?

Exedy flywheel and clutch. I've only lost the clutch once before, and when I did, the clutch would slip when I'd hit the throttle and let it out in 2nd-3rd. The slipping in first was less noticable.

ACT clutch w/ exedy clutch disc and stock flywheel. I plan on getting a lightened flywheel this spring, but I don't know which one yet. Can anyone give me feedback on the different flywheels? (Toda, Exedy, Fidanza, STi)

Why not turbo the L first? I know that my Rs is too slow, if it dosent become amazingly fast after the cams, clutch, flywheel, headers, cat, retainers, valvesprings, raised redline, and NX express kit, Im saving my pennies, and trading my car in on a M3..
