Action Clutch is often willing to do one off parts but they are likely only able to offer riveted.

Sounds like Emilio is still looking at least. Or prefers organic. I got mine redone so cheap that I'm happy.

Ive driven metalic twin disks with heavier flywheels and its not something I would WANT to do often. I cannot imagine with another 4lbs shaved off the flywheel.

I'm kinda bummed that I sold mine. I should have kept it for experimental purposes. I flip and flop worse than a politician sometimes.

I got a replacement organic from 949 after mine failed (but Emilio was not happy sending out one with unbounded material), but there is a ceramic one on the shelf when this one failes.
949 single with organic make down-shifting special, no blip, no shift

Ok, so one thing I will say bad about this clutch.

If you are trying to drive in the snow and ice, it can sometimes be hard to get it going because of the quick engagement. Took lots of finesse to get to work today.

Sorry to hate on your product Emilio.

Lol. I think that falls directly under the "Not the intended use" category of complaints.

You are absolutely right. Our race clutch sucks to drive on the street. That is precisely, and I mean verbatim, what I tell customers that call in asking about for a street car.

I hope my sarcasm was obvious enough. The fact that I could drive it on snow speaks for how well the organic actually does drive on the street.

I love your clutch.
