It is amazing how opinions of clutches and flywheels are all over the place. In spending DAYS reading threads (well a few hrs a day for a few days) here is what I can find:
- Takes a stock $550 40lb dual mass flywheel and machines it down to 31lbs. and charges $1600 for it.
- Mates it to a SPEC clutch and calls it their own
- They are actually an accounting company and make fake forum handles and pretend to be satisfied customers
- Most people have actually had good luck with these 10.5" clutch/FW kits after a very rough break in period of at least 500mi where there is lots of shudder and vibration.
- Terrible customer service
- Their V8 kit (stock sized) mid-weight flywheel is 27lbs and 50% of people say is good, 50% of people say is not properly balanced. It may or may not chatter at idle
- The majority of people say the stock sized clutch kit has manufacturing issues, assembly issues (backwards spindle or something), and premature wear.
- Their clutch kits have a sprung hub which is supposed to work well with solid lightweight flywheels.
- Their V12 kit gets pretty good reviews
JB Racing Single mass flywheel
- High quality, no manufacturing issues, but at 13 lbs, it's guaranteed to make a racket.
South Bend Clutch SBC:
- Very good customer service
- The majority of people are happy with the clutch kits. Some S/Cd cars have experienced slipping and premature wear.
- They offer many kids
- They are solid disk clutches and thus not designed for use with solid, lightweight flywheels. However, a few people have had good experiences with a solid disk and a solid flywheel.
