And I'm not getting any clutch chatter or any of that with mine

I too am running a Fidanza flywheel(I thought it was 8lbs at first but had got it confused with my Accord; it's 7lbs). How smooth shifting is really depends on the clutch. I have no problems since I'm using an Exedy oem repclacement. With that said, it's still easier for me to drive smoothly with a heavier flywheel.

Yeah, I think that 90% of people here are running more clutch than they need, so that's probably most of the issue.
I read a thread not too long ago where a guy was looking to buy a clutch and everyone said stage 2, but he bought a stage 3...wtf?
Stock/lightly modified engine=stock clutch!!

Im pretty sure i have a stage 1 clutch, the guy told me is has a "heavier duty clutch", this is what happens when you buy a used car as we all know, never know 100%.
But i can tell it is cause i have used stock cars including a civic and my clutch is noticeably shorter and stiffer. I had trouble driving my friends Z24 cavalier because the clutch was soo long and i have a short throw.

Generally speaking, if someone says "heavier duty clutch", that doesn't necessarily mean the flywheel was changed or the weight was increased or even decreased. That only means that the pressure plate has been upgraded with one of more clamping force, or possibly a segmented clutch disc.
