well then it was an extremely STUPID choice to go with a light flywheel and 6puck clutch. it will absolutely suck trying to drive it on the street. been there done that.
get an FM2 and stock flywheel. good enough to hold decent power and very street friendly.

This is exactly what I was thinking.

How is a super-lightweight (8lbs would mean Fidanza IIRC, which is close to $400) flywheel plus a 6-puck clutch (Sure, let's go with a $200 FleaBay unit) cheaper/more budgety than a stock flywheel with a $400 FM clutch/PP?

Because flywheel was much, much cheaper.

ive ran lightened flywheels my whole life on every single car i built. when im running canyons i dont even touch the brakes because the flywheel does all the breaking. and the clutch is just fine for street use. it feels a lot like a motorcycle clutch. theres no middle point of where its half way caught on. its either engaged or disengaged even if you would want to ride it you really cant! ive been driving it daily to work out all the kinks of the car and put close to 1000 miles on this clutch already in notorious los angeles traffic and dont have a single complaint about it being hard to drive!!! if anything i would want an even stiffer pressure plate then i already got! slava you know the budget! im willing to dump a lot of money in this car plus the bimmer is a LEMON. can you say fat *** check from bmw to me
