why not just install a lightweight flywheel while you have everything apart? Used ones aren't that much, especially if this is going to be your track car.

im going to use this used clutch as my starter clutch, i havent drove stick in like 2-3 years so im gonna be rusty and probally run the clutch hard, i dont want to spend 1000 bucks on a nice stage 2 clutch and ruin it in the first week, once i get the hang of the stick again ill save up and get a nice lightweight flywheel and clutch and put it in myself over a weekend


point is i dont wana waste my money cause i know im gonna run the clutch hard

first thing that comes to mind of me wasting money is i spent about 500 bucks on a king cobra clutch for my old mustang when i did the 5spd swap in that, boy was that a mistake, i bought a used flywheel and had it re-surfaced, well the bolts that hold the pressure plate on, the threads were all stripped and stupid me never noticed, so i put the clutch on and put the tranny on and started it up, couldnt get it into gear so i looked under my car and the tranny was smoking, figured it was spilt oil from the swap, turns out all the bolts came loose and fell out that held the pressure plate tight to the flywheel, and the clutch was just free spinnin against the flywheel, yup sittin there smokin away, bye bye $500 clutch!
