1.6 Fidanza aluminum flywheel w/ Gripforce clutch
Use of this flywheel as is will likely result in the instant removal of your legs at the least but more likely a bloody death.
I feel this is a pretty good full disclosure.

The ring gear is loose. This is an extremely bad situation. The center hole that captures the pilot bearing is slightly too large. A machine shop should be able to remedy both of these issues. You are on your own. See the above warning. Regardless of what your mom(and/or special ed teacher) tells you, you ARE responsible for the consequences of your actions.
Used 1.6 Gripforce F1 Stage 3 clutch/pressure plate
Purchased from 949racing. After a LONG break in period it held power perfectly even with repeated R-comp and drag radial full on launches. It works. That being said I would never recommend this clutch to a friend or even an enemy.
Contrary to popular belief, a 1.6 setup will hold power for most people just fine. With this flywheel, an Exedy stage 1 lasted 30k miles with 300+ full on launches including a 12.56 pass.
I have changed to a 1.8 setup to accommodate future, much higher, hp goals. The1.8 11lb flywheel feels like a boat anchor compared to the small Fidanza, almost sluggish.
$60 shipped in the USA
As usual, there is a SIGNIFICANT discount to active duty military.
