flywheel and clutch options

Postby Tosh21 » Sat May 30, 2015 2:09 pm

Starting to notice my clutch is getting pretty tired, probably will do another year but not with the turbo on it so I've been looking at light flywheel and clutch kits. I found this.

Seems way too cheap though and I thought exedy clutches had purple Covers?

What options are there? I'm not too clued up with clutches

Don't buy any kits from them the horror stories I have read is ridiculous very bad quality
I got an exedy stage 3 hyper clutch and flywheel was around 1000 euro but a fab clutch the bite is serious highly recconmend .. Takes a while to get used to though

Oh really? I'm not surprised to be honest they do look a bit sketchy.

I did find this though, again, bit skeptical as I thought ORC clutches were mega money. £400 for a clutch and light flywheel is pretty dam good, Some of the exedy clutches I saw were more expensive without a flywheel

Re: flywheel and clutch options. looking at an orc 309

Emailed nengun and they said it's not a lightweight flywheel but the whole unit is lighter. But Atleast its solid and I could skim off the flywheel myself if it is ridiculously heavy.

Anyone ran an orc 309?

You got a custom flywheel? The JUN ones aren't that expensive, how come you went custom? just out of curiosity

It was about the same price, but I had time constraints so took the plunge!

How much power/torque you looking to make? I am having a custom clutch by a company here in the states. I havent priced flywheelsike jun, trd, toda, or exedy here in the states but im still looking for options for flywheels. Care to recommend any? (Not trying to thread jack btw)

I went OS Giken twin plate with 5.7kg flywheel and haven't looked back. Expensive but has lasted well and retains close to stock pedal feel (weight wise).

Got it around 2010 had a look at it last year when I took the gearbox off and it still had more than half the friction material left.
