Fidanza Clutch: www.fidanza.com

Stage 1:
Combine carbon and Kevlar, give them a steel backing and you have the most durable and longest lasting street clutch available. We’ve engineered our torsion damper and marcel cushion to engage smoothly yet quickly. Perfect for the daily drivers. We recommend this disc to those who drive their vehicle every day, in all conditions.


Stage 2:
Like our lightweight flywheels we choose to use the very best in materials. That’s why we designed our Three Point Two with the Kevlar buttons. With 100% Kevlar friction you get more grip and more life than the Two Point One. However, since it has no marcel (cushion) this disc sacrifices a little bit of its smooth engagement. Still, this disc can be installed on a daily driver. Just behave and be patient during it’s 500 mile break-in period. Once that’s over you can be as nasty as you want.


Stage 3:
This is one mean clutch. Your footwork better be good, it’s no walk in the park. Just because it has a torsion damper like the Three Point Two doesn’t mean it drives like it. Those are ceramic buttons attached to that puck. They provide quite a grip upon engagement. That means power is planted straight to the pavement. Don’t be scared though, it’s not going to give you a larger left leg.


Stage 4:
If you choose Five Point Four you’re either building an all out race car or a rocket. This disc will show you what grip really feels like. As you can see there is no torsion damper, no marcel, and the pads are made from sintered iron. What you’ll feel – instantaneous power. This is for the racers.

Not street-friendly due to harsh engagement.

High clamp pressure plate (adjustability available on some applications), rigid iron disc assembly, bearing and tool kit.



South Bend Clutch www.dxdracingclutches.com

Stage 1 (Rally Series):
Rally kits contain a modified high performance pressure plate and heavy duty organic disc. The linings on this disc are premium woven medium metal content lining. This facing has a 9000 RPM burst and dissipates heat quicker then any other organic lining on the market. This kit generates 1/3 more torque then stock. Also included in the kit are a throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, and alignment tool.


Stage 2 (TZ Series):
TZ kits contain a modified high performance pressure plate with a heavy duty Kevlar® lined disc. The metal backed Kevlar® linings provide a smooth engagement and have the torque capacity to handle high horse power, high revving engines . These clutch kits maintain a stock feel at the pedal and have unmatched durability. Also included in the kit are a throw out bearing, pilot bearing, and alignment tool


Stage 3 (OFE Series):
The OFE kit combines the newest technology in linings: A Feramic full face lining on the flywheel side and a "Medium Metal" content Organic lining on the pressure plate side. This combination runs cooler and significantly extends clutch life. The OFE series clutch not only engages very smooth, it has the torque capacity of other Stage 4 clutch kits. This state of the art kit is what everybody wants when it comes to street performance.


Stage 4 (DXD Series):
The DXD SS Puck kit contains a extreme clamp load pressure plate, and a 6 button, true dual friction clutch disc. By using ceramic buttons on the flywheel side of the disc and 100% Kevlar® buttons on the pressure plate, this disc will provide all the holding power required by today's serious racers.


Stage 5 (DXD-F Series):
Our DXD-F SS series is the ultimate in puck style clutches. Our Feramic product incorporates graphite and cindered iron for the highest torque friction product in the industry. The DXD-F SS is intended only for the serious racer. Feramic will greatly reduce wear to the flywheel and pressure plate casting making this puck clutch out last the competition. This Feramic product exemplifies what Dynamax Extreme Duty clutch kits are all about.

Re: *** Definitive Clutch Thread ****

Flywheels:

Fidanza Lightweight Flywheel: www.fidanza.com
A Fidanza flywheel can mate with any type of clutch material, including organic, kevlar, ceramic, metallic and sintered iron. We attach the friction surface with military grade aerospace fasteners. The ring gears we use are also made from 1050 steel and are heat treated for durability. The gears are heated then pressed on and secured with grade 8 button screws.

Weight: 9.5 lbs



Clutchmasters Lightweight Flywheel: www.clutchmasters.com

* Reduced mass equals increased acceleration.
* A lightweight flywheel works particularly well with turbo-charged engines because it reduces typical turbo lag.
* Increased supercharger efficiency due to less parasitic drag on the crank.
* Improved mid-range torque in a normally aspirated engine due to not having to overcome the heavy weight of a stock flywheel.
* CM uses only 6061-T6 aircraft grade or better billet aluminum in the manufacturer of its flywheels.
* CM uses High Carbon steel for the friction surface. (Replaceable)
* CM uses an OEM steel ring gear secured by bolts.
* CM offers a limited lifetime warranty.
* CM Billet Aluminum Flywheels meet SFI Spec 1.1 or 1.2


Spec Flywheels: www.specclutch.com

SPEC flywheels are CNC manufactured at an unheard-of .001 tolerance, in an industry where the standard is .010. This precision manufacturing process ensures perfect balance and a perfectly flat bedding surface for the clutch disc, both of which also contribute to the ultimate in safety for competitive environments. All SPEC flywheels carry SFI certification. (sfi link)

To allow for specific inertia needs, SPEC flywheels are made in high carbon billet steel and aircraft quality billet aluminum. The aluminum and most steel SPEC units are rebuildable and feature a replaceable steel friction plate that is made from a friction- enhancing steel metal specially formulated for optimum clutch bedding and holding power. The aluminum and steel materials provide a light and medium weight option for all types of racing. SPEC spends a lot of time and effort on research and development of optimum flywheel dimensions and weights for all types of driving and racing and can optimize your MOI (moment of inertia) to maximize your car's output and performance.


RIPP Modifications Flywheel: (http://www.newtiburon.com/forums/boostology/)

10Lb Billet Aluminum Flywheel. Complete assemblies with steel friction insert. They have ring gears installed and come with clutch-mounting fasteners. Theyre drilled for use with RIPP clutch assemblies.

Our Aluminum flywheels are essential for any Tiburon enthusiast who desires a faster revving engine. Our aluminum flywheels, which weigh Just 10pounds, are much lighter than the heavy OEM unit that tips the scales at 25.5 lbs. This means utilizing our Clutch and Flywheel, you’ll have less rotating mass, which directly translates into more useable horsepower. And since our aluminum flywheel is lighter than OEM, it will help extend engine life, due to less stress on your engines main bearings. Our flywheels are CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and then finished with a CSS (constant surface speed) process’ that results in a finish that is second to none. Race Hardware with self locking nuts attaches the 1050 high carbon steel friction plate to the 6061 assembly. We also use button-head screws to avoid ring gear slippage. Truly the best option is flywheel technology available.

Re: The Definitive Clutch Reference Thread

Sorry guys that I had to delete some of your posts, but not because I don't appreciate them but because I didn't realize these clutch posts would be so big and would have to be spread out over more than the 3 posts I set aside. I wanted all the posts together for ease of use, so don't take offence. I thought saving 3 posts would be enought... but apparently not.

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

Thank you for your time. That's great info. Now, I am waiting on people to comment and say what they have and how it is. I am going to buy clutch/flywheel to install on my car and also on my friend's car, but it's hard to decide with price range being so wide, and the fact i hear some flywheel don't go with some clutch kits......

Oh, just in cast you didn't know, Exedy, Zoom, and some korean company makes clutch kit for tiburon. And Zoom also makes flywheel for tiburon. I saw exedy at Ultrarev.com, Zoom at Summit Racing (also, my friend was big part of FinishLine Racing, which use Zoom products on their drift nissans), and some korean company one from some korean website I was browsing while looking at race spec korean tiburons.

What I want to know as of now is, how good is Exedy clutch kit? I am leaning, almost kissing, toward them as of now. You can't beat the price, they are almost cheaper than factory replacement. I heard many good reviews on miata forum, but nobody ever said anything about them on nt.com. And one of my friend told me they have bad reputation in Honda community.

I am definitely going with Fidanza flywheel due to the price. I hear many people on the board is saying they have to replace the friction disc sooner than they expected to do.

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

Celtic,

if you planned on going F/I in the future, Fidanza Flywheel/Fidanza 4.3 clutch kit would be a good choice. fidanza makes some of the best flywheels, couldn't ask for more if you put a fidanza clutch in with the flywheel too;x. A Clutchmasters stage 3-4/fidanza flywheel works well also. A buddy of mine is running a Clutchmasters stage 4 with fidanza flywheel (hes F/I), and it grabs pretty hard. Personally I have a Stg.3 Clutchmasters clutch and fidanza flywheel, and it feels great...though I'm not going F/I just yet ;P.

Regarding the other clutches and flywhels, a couple people I know back in cincinnati ran spec clutches...had failures with it.; so I steered away from that particular brand. I've never personally seen the CM flywheel so I can't give you too much of an opinion on that, but I've heard good things about the CM flywheel ^^. Hopefully this will help you somewhat. take care.

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

I've got a question. Which Clutchmasters stage would be best for me? My Tib is a daily driver Monday-Thursday, and a race car on Friday nights. I sometimes drive it pretty hard on the street, though. I figured the Stage 3 would probably be my best bet, but I know next to nothing about clutches.

Also... Is a new flywheel necessary when getting a new clutch? I'll be going stage 2 S/C soon too, if that makes any difference.

But do I actually NEED a new flywheel when I get a new clutch? I'm actually needing a new clutch, but I don't have $800+ to get the clutch and flywheel at the same time. So my plan was to get the clutch now, then when I get some more money, get the flywheel. Unless I'm actually supposed to get them together... Then I guess I'll have to wait to get both of them.

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

Well my stock clutch isn't holding too well anymore and now i am in desperate need of an aftermarket clutch flywheel combo. I need your suggestions on what to get and where (which websites) to get it the cheapest. Here are my specs. Currently I am at 42k miles on an 04 6 speed V6 tib I have an alpine stage 2 supercharger that has recently dynoed 260 whp and 216 wtq. My car is a daily driver so I would like to have a blend of performance that will be able to hold my power but also have some driveability. What does everyone recommend?

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

check this... I've got the 03 GT V6 6-Speed, I ripped thru the original clutch within 10k miles?? So I get the dealership to replace it for me. I notice 10k miles later its startin to slip again so I went out and got the Findanza light weight Flywheel and ACT Stage 2 Clutch and have it installed by a local performance shop and they dont fit So I check the boards and Apparently I have a tib made within the first 6 months of 03 and it has a smaller assembly. Does anybody know if theirs a clutch out there that will fit my application or should I count on Spendin $800 every year for a stock clutch?

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

So, the fidanza clutches are listed for the v6 6 speed in fidanza's catalog, but is there really a difference between 5 and 6 speed? Most clutches I've seen are designed for both, so shouldn't it work in a 5 speed?

Of course, I ask because I have a 5 speed, and I'm deciding between south bend and fidanza.

Re: *****The Definitive Clutch & Flywheel Reference Thread*****

Thanks for this information - really helps! I'm not too fond of my stock clutch either. I'm only at 29K on my car, but I might look into changing the clutch and flywheel too. I have an '05 GS,5-spd, and am thinking about getting a stage 2 clutch and flywheel. I am just a daily driver and maybe would like to drive my car for fun at times. Any suggestions?

If only Hyundai's OEM parts were as good as their customer service, they'd be PERFECT.
