Default New heavier Street flywheel for Supermiata twin clutch

We have just added a new 12.8 lb Street flywheel option for our twin disc clutch. We still offer the 5.5 Race flywheel of course.
The intent of the heavier flywheel was to make it more streetable. More torque capacity than any single 9" (OEM 1.8) disc with a lighter pedal. The twin is a much heavier pedal than a stock clutch but still lighter than the high capacity 1.8 clutches on the market.
As a test, we let the clutch out slowly in reverse up a slight incline, no throttle and the car would chug away on idle control without stalling. The 5.5 flywheel is very easy to stall in comparison.
The other bonus is a huge reduction in NVH. The Race flywheel allows every buzz and rattle to enter your back teeth. It's a race clutch, no sugar coating it.
The Street flywheel feels like a normal 1.8 clutch with light flywheel. Quite, not buzzy. The perk is that it will hold 400 lbs/ft and your SO can drive it.

Simple choice between the two. The Street flywheel is still fast revving, holds torque, is quier and very driveable on the street. The Race flywheel sucks everywhere, makes your drivetrain sound broken except exiting pit lane, revs like a superbike and is godlike on track.
