    I don't know about the ACT flywheel, but it must feel pretty similar to my 8 pound Clutchmasters/Fidanza flywheel.

    My 8 pounder lets the engine wind up faster, makes fast shifts a little easier, plus it's still easy to drive on the street.

    I had the fidanza/clutchmaster flywheel and like it very much. I have also heard good things about the toda and Jun units. You can also consider lightening yours to 12lbs, zex, spoon. This usually becomes a chromoly issue when choosing flywheels.


    Any input on chromoly gentlemen?????reviews???

    just a heads up .... you need to start off differently with the lightened flywheel than you do stock
    blip the RPMs a little higher than usual when taking off
    that will keep it a lot smoother... if you dont youll be really jerky and probly stall a few times :)

    youll learn this anyway ... just figured id give ya the heads up though :)
