No forced induction for me. Still a problem?

But this is going to be on an N/A car.

Honestly I wouldnt be too afraid of any of the steel ebay flywheels, the aluminum ones with steel friction plates added in, not so sure about those. The F1 chromo in the subaru still hasnt managed to cut my feet off yet.

I'd invest in the 949 one just to be safe myself. Then try a SPEC clutch. Something with a grabby organic.

Although I think the FMII clutch is ceramic, and I've driven one in Ed's MSM and I think Stoly's new NB has one. Takes a little getting used to, but the crisper shifts once you get moving are very worth it.

Wondering if a basic Exedy would be fine. Or a South Bend. I know nobody uses SB clutches on Miatas but i've used them on everything my entire "career."

I dunno. More shopping necessary.

What composition and stuff am I looking for if I put importance on fast response? Ceramic? Kevlar?

My clutch is orange, not pink, so I'm not quite sure what it is.

You could try welding some used brake pads together. Would probably be about equal to a spec clutch but for less money.

Ceramic. That's the one people describe as on/off. Like I said, Stoly has a fermi. FMII and Ed has a 949 colored ceramic clutch that's not a 949 clutch. Both feel great.

Ryan_G actually has the mounts right now as he wanted to try them out.

As for the sway, I've got the big boy RB sitting in my garage as its listed in my FS thread. AND I've still got the M-Tuned dual feel fuel rail plumbing kit you said you wanted sitting on my desk at the office

My FM Stage 1 feels great, looks fine after 2k track miles. Would buy again. Pedal effort is light enough that Curly can easily drive the car.

FM2 clutch & lightweight flywheel = fullofwin. I enjoy mine. Noticed rpms come up much faster during highway speeds in 5-6 gear in my msm. Will buy again.

FM1 clutch + aluminum flywheel is also win. No complaints here.

Transmission is a little noisy with that light a flywheel, but I'll live.
