choosing a clutch kit is absolutely doing my head in. especially if you live in Australia (like I do).
im building a turbo 1.8 with a goal of around 300whp.
being in Australia means my kit choices are limited to the local market (exedy and xtreme) and ebay.
ultimately I want an FM2 kit with the lightest flywheel, but they dont ship to Australia :(
I have a small list of wants:
* ultra light flywheel
* not too heavy pedal (heavier than stock is fine)
* be able to slip the clutch (would like the wife to drive it every now and then so i guess a full face sprung is what i need).
So my choices are
Competition Clutch Stage 3. I've not read a single review about this kit! Stage 2 i feel is too soft and stage 4 is too bitey (6 puck).
ACT ZM2-XTSS. This was my number one choice until I read how heavy the clutch pedal is. Of course its all just words and unfortunately there is no one I know in Australia that has this setup for me to test out.
If i had to pick between light pedal with a savage engagement or a heavy pedal and a more sedate engagement, I would go with the heavier pedal.
there are a couple of local choices which I might explore, but I'd like to see if their are any proven off the shelf solutions which are available to me.
One more question, the XTD Prolite Flywheel. Are they ok? They seem awfully cheap and I know of some people in Aus that have had stupid luck with their clutches, but no real comments about their flywheel.
thanks for reading
PS: FM, send me a Happy Meal to Australia please!!!
