i'm getting an 8lb fidanza flywheel to go with my new clutch but i'd say 10-15pds is better for daily driving. however i talked to several people that told me i'd be ok with an 8 pounder. it'll be like driving a whole new car with a lighter flywheel though, the revs will rise and drop quicker so you have to shift faster. by the way www.titanmotorsports.com is offering a special right now on all fidanza flywheels for honda's for 259 + shipping if anyone is interested.

My clutch is going on my Prelude so i'm considering getting the fidanza flywheel. Just how bad is a 8lb flywheel in rush hour traffic?

Also, what is a good brand name clutch?

I am a Direct Dealer of Daikin (O.E.M. to Honda) and Exedy Clutches if you need help makinh the right choice Give me a call.

Hyper Single Clutch:

The Hyper Single Clutch is engineered to optimize performance for cars that are moderately modified, but do not require the clutch capacity of a multi-plate clutch. Similar to our multi-plate clutches, it has a forged aluminum cover that is anodized purple. The aluminum cover is stiffer than a stamped cover and therefore allows a higher lever ratio to maintain the pedal efforts at a reasonable level.

All Hyper Clutches come with a steel flywheel and a 6-puck cerametallic facing, spring center damper disc assembly. The disc is generally smaller and thinner than the OEM disc making for lower inertia and therefore quicker, easier shifting and less wear and tear on the transmission synchros. The higher clamp load and cerametallic friction facings give approximately twice the holding torque of the OEM clutch and generally higher than other single plate clutches.

As with all cerametallic clutches, the street driveability may be marginal due to chattering and harsh engagement characteristics.

An additional feature of the pressure plate is a series of turbine-like, air flow enhancing vanes that keep the clutch cooler under extreme operating conditions to improve wear life. For Purchase information Please Click Here: :: EXEDY SPORT & PERFORMANCE CLUTCH SPECIALIST'S

Single Plate Organic:

EXEDY Racing clutches with organic friction materials use only premium friction materials that are resistant to slippage and burst. Increased clamp loads give the necessary capacity to handle modified engines.

The driveability will be like a stock clutch. Pedal efforts will be higher because of the higher clamp loads. All of our clutch discs have high capacity spring center dampers to reduce the drive train shock and impact.

Single Plate Cerametallic:

EXEDY cerametallic clutches are designed to handle the abuse of high power modified engines. Our cerametallic friction material can handle much more slippage than stock type disc assemblies without slipping and fading.

All EXEDY cerametallic clutch discs have spring center dampers to reduce the impact and shock loads put into the drive train. This protects the transmission and the rest of the drive line system.

We offer two types of cerametallic discs -normal thickness and reduced thickness.

The reduced thickness (thin cerametallic) discs offer greatly reduced inertia to improve shift efforts, make for faster shifting, and improve synchro durability. These discs are approximately 1/2 the thickness of a stock disc.

The normal thickness (thick cerametallic) discs have better heat capacity and therefore better durability in demanding applications such as all wheel drive. Even with the normal thickness, our three puck cerametallic discs still typically have less inertia than a stock disc.

With any cerametallic clutch system, there will be some compromise of start up driveability as compared to a stock clutch (chatter on light throttle, low rpm start up). This characteristic is generally felt to be acceptable in modified performance cars. Drivers of cerametallic clutches on the street should be warned not to "ride the clutch" to try to reduce the chatter as this will greatly increase the wear.

Racing Flywheels:

EXEDY Racing Flywheels are made from solid one-piece billet chrome moly steel or chrome moly steel forgings. They are specifically designed to reduce weight and inertia for better engine response. Most incorporate special design features to enhance the air flow to improve the cooling of the clutch. The ring gear teeth are milled onto the flywheel unlike an aluminum flywheel where the ring gear is pressed onto the flywheel which has the possibilities of separating from the flywheel. This could cause the flywheel to explode due to two different expansion coefficients (aluminum flywheel pressed on steel ring gear). EXEDY steel billet and forged steel flywheels have passed engineering tests to 15,000 rpm. They are guaranteed to be explosion proof at the said rpm.

i just recently put in the fidanza flywheel with a 6 puck in my 97 5th gen, and yes the rev are quik as shit.. when i first started driving my whole new set-up it was kinda harsh but now i think the clutch is broken in nice and in my opinion it not much of a diff from stock except for a litl bit of a jolt depending on how smooth u are..... but i wouldn't recomend fidanza flywheel for a turbo set-up.
