Default Fidanza flywheel.

Short and simple any one running the Fidanza 8lb flywheel? Is it worth the $340?

Nooooooooooooo Boooooooooooo Findanza is shitty go for the ACT Steel Light Weight Flywheel. I Got my Fidanza and the pilot bearing spot was over bored and they couldnt get me a new one for like 3 weeks. Lucky I got it from Goodwin racing and so he gave me the ACT Steel Light one for free and over nighted it to me.

I have the FM al flywheel (basically a fidanza). The pilot bearing hole gets worn if your'e not careful. Aluminum expands much more than the bearing when it gets hot, the bearign could get loose, start spinning in the bore, wearing the hole, etc.

At my next clutch change I'll probably replace it with the ACT steel flywheel and sell the FM part on m.net.
