Almost my exact thoughts.....however! I have seen/used for extended period of time/ used many of/etc. Products that get terrible reviews because most people give insufficient reviews. I trust peoples opinions very little unless I know their back ground. If you have RESEARCHED it and You believe it to be what you are after then hopefully everything will work out. If you trust a strangers blind thoughts then you have what you deserve coming to You. Same goes for ordering something without knowing anything about it.

Re: XTD Flywheel - ughh can't sleep

Bought it because it was bundled with a clutch set that I wanted. Didn't really care about the no name flywheel until I seen them selling for a good penny.

Re: XTD Flywheel - ughh can't sleep

well and going with other people reviews as well..you never know how they drive..the one i read the guy said the flywheel got all bent out of shape..who knows maybe he just can't drive right or just beats the **** out of is car..personally i would say that every part has the possiblility to be a great peice, however it is if you can take care of it..some parts can handle abuse, some can't...with all said..take care of your car and she will take care of you..

Re: XTD Flywheel - ughh can't sleep

True, there are many variables with how products function or sustain abuse

My idea is to get first hand Honda owners thoughts; where I could ask specific questions on how it felt, lasted, etc

Re: XTD Flywheel - ughh can't sleep

I bought the stage 1 clutch w/ lightened flywheel for my RHD Prelude, and I've been driving on it for 2 years with no problems. I don't rag on my car, so that's probably why it last. If you break in the clutch properly and don't beat the sh*t of your car, you'll most likely be fine
