I believe those are used to not put a twist into the rings as you slip them over into the lands.

sorry aidan

You put the rings on the pistons with that. You can spiral them on, I much prefer the tool.

This is why I recommended them to you. If you are experienced, you can spiral them on IMO. It takes practice though, you can easily bend or twist them, and **** up the ring lands. Practice that on old pistons and rings or your dirtbike, lawn mower or whatever, not your track miata or v8 truck. The pliers are brainless, just dont expand them anymore than is absolutely necessary to get them over the pistons.

Im rethinking clutch choices. Id like to only buy it once, rods might change things a little.

was going to buy
ZM1-XTSS // Advanced Clutch Technology
rated at 270lbft.

should I go more? Seeing all the sprung hub failures has me worried too. should I go with a solid like:
ZM1-XTR4 // Advanced Clutch Technology
at 350lbft ?

Id like to stay with my 1.6 flywheel, and want a little overhead on the torque rating. something other than ACT?

Will do, and yea i keep seeing glimpses of the same thing. Someone posted a pic of one of their sprung hubs and it was super beefy compared to the ACT.

I could have swore they were the ones were just poo pooing a few months ago...

edit- that was clutchnet wasnt it

I dont think I should ever need much more than 300tq in this car. Am I crazy?

<p>http://www.clutchnet.com/index.php?p...amp;Itemid=140</p><p>70$ more gets you more torque than any transmission you can hook to it can handle.</p><p>Please get a clutchnet. The poopooing that I've heard has been very &quot;he said she said&quot;</p><p>And then beat the **** out of it so I know if I should get one.</p>

Wrong website lol. This is what no sleep does to you. I meant to look at competition clutch website.


FWIW, every track mile on our miata is on a stage 2, f1 clutch
