I think stage 2 need a a lwfw. Stage one does not need an upgraded flywheel.

Cost is for clutch only no flywheel

I think regular stage 2 would be good if you just want to do a 75-100 shot. Anything larger would require the endurance or high stuff.

I wonder if you mix and match a DMF with a sprung clutch. Extra dampening and less driveline shock?

Not a fan of Excellerate showing a flywheel in the pic. I know it's a stock photo but it's not even noted that the flywheel is not included (at least not obviously.)

I contacted XLR8 and they have a new clutch out. Right now they have a deal for $1100 shipped.
It will hold 340 tq. It will include a conversion pressure plate and Organic friction disc meant for street driving. The flywheel is made by AASCO.

AASCO Motorsports Flywheels - Excelerate Performance - Japanese and European Performance Specialists!!

Also the warranty is 12 mos/12k on manufacturer defect.

Our kit is superior. It uses better products, holds more torque, and will last longer.

Least they're honest about AASCO making the Flywheel. CM tried to tell me they made it, yet I had the AASCO one and theirs next to each other and the only difference was the "AASCO" sticker was scraped off. That's none of my business though (insert Kermit the Frog photo)

Organic is the way to go. I hate kelavr since it is unforgiving, and it all so burns out faster.

I believe stage 1 cause when I was talking to him that was what I was looking for. They may have others. They also told me that the reason it is $1100 is a special deal right now because it hasnt hit the public yet. They plan on hitting the public with it in the next couple days. When that happens price will go up.

I didn't get south Bend. I bought one that excelerate made themselves. They did only a couple companies make some clutch components and that is why it says exedy on part of the clutch.

As you see it says exedy on it. But as I said they told me that "only some manufacturers make clutch components but exedy did not make their clutch".

they probably use the spring disk and south bend just stuck their clutch material on it.

the one that isn't red has the self adjusting springs on it. Its why our stock pressure plate sucks so much.
