The fact that I have to stress at ALL about my Pressure Plate fitting this ******* thing is ridiculous.



It says RIGHT ON THE WEBSITE that any stock or aftermarket clutch WILL suit.



My Racing Beat Race Pressure Plate is an EXACT stock plate replacement, and it fits completely fine on the stock flywheel.



The arms do NOT clear the lip on this tweakit.net 12lb flywheel.

Improved acceleration due to decreased rotating mass of flywheel.



Many times stronger than the OEM flywheel and able to handle plenty of abuse.



Increased engine braking, great for circuit racing, autocross, rally......

Use with your ring gear. If you don't have a good ring gear and have no luck sourcing it locally, we can supply brand new ring gear fitted to the flywheel.



The factory flywheel has a part carved out of the flywheel to act as the necessary counterweight. So, you'll need the counterweight from an automatic 12A for 12A engines, or automatic 13B for 13B engines, as the manual doesn't use a counterweight standard.

Ill post the details later, but that flywheel is made for the pre-83 12A, which uses a different pressure plate than the later ones, which are all interchangable.

I'm sure it's a quality product, but unfortunately they DONT FIT stock later model pressure plates as ADVERTISED.

Well I just emailed them hours ago.



I wouldn't expect to hear anything yet. I emailed them at the time I started this thread.
