    sweet mother of god it's genius- why can't i think of cool crap like that? although to be honest, i'm not sure i would want to think about a saw blade pushing against my flywheel everytime i shift- he says it's stronger and everything, but i'm not sure his guestimate is the same as the R&D at the REAL clutch companies- some things are just best left to the pros-

    :eek: :huh: The guy has put some thought into it I'll give him that, I am guessing it would work? I just don't know if it was worth all the work to find out if it will or not, saw blades are nice and strong, but i guess hes doing a lil R&D himself, and thats the only way we get sites like:

    maybe im missing something here ... but he is estimating his price at $218 to make that
    you could get the ACT for less
    hell you could get it with the pressure plate for only a few dollars more

    O and for the clutch part, I don' know if I would even think about using that, It just seems like somethign will go wrong.

    I think that his total includes the truck pressure plate and the labor for turning the flywheel and all. I think it is pretty ghetto fabed. I dont think it is worth the effort.

    I might work as far an bolting up and the stregth, but what about balancing? I wouldn't trust it in my setup, but props for some serious figuring out. I think I'll stick to buying cluthes.

    sounds like a great idea and all but I bet it vibrates like hell, unless he plans to balance it somehow. why reinvent the wheel
