Slipping clutch

so i bought an ACT clutch extreme series or whatever and well it starting to slip on me and stuff and i only have about 3000 miles on it so i figured whilel i have my tranny dropped i might as well replace the fly wheel so any recommendations from experience on good clutches and fly wheels i was looking at the exedy stage1 cause it more towards an oem full faced clutch but i dont know what kind of flywheel please let me know. i just want something reliable

Re: Slipping clutch

I've had good luck with clutch masters clutches over the last 8 years lol and I have a findanza flywheel. change the slave cylinder, cheap insurance as it can ruin all the work you're about to do.

Re: Slipping clutch

I am running the OEM exedy clutch kit and an 8.5 fidanza flywheel. I have had this installed for a few years with no problem. The clutch feels great as its stock. The flywheel takes a little getting used to (have to have a slightly lighter touch from stoplights) but was definitely worth it as it revves much quicker now.

Re: Slipping clutch

questions what is the reason for changing the slave cylinder and the lighter fidanza fly wheel isnt more prone to breaking and would it be better to stick with the clutch master clutch and flywheel and if i did get any combo of flywheel and clutch would i have to make any changes like machining
thanks for yalls advice

Re: Slipping clutch

you can get an oem replacement flywheel, 11lb, 8lb... and so on. I like the findanza because it has removable steel plates that can be replaced if they warp or when they wear. I'm not sure about any other brand. You don't have to do anything special to mix and match clutch and flywheel brands. Changing the slave cylinder is common practice when replacing a clutch, so is machining the flywheel. an uneven surface on the flywheel will lessen the life of a clutch. A leaking slave cylinder will ruin a clutch and possibly the flywheel.

Re: Slipping clutch

you don't need to have a new one machined, I was speaking in reference to reusing your old one.

if you do a proper "break in period" with your new clutch it's not gonna last.
not resurfacing the flywheel and not replacing the slave can be major contributors to a failing clutch as well. sorry if there was any confusion there
