I have been running the stage 3 for about 3 months now. Great value for the money indeed. Product is shipped out quickly too.

There is no difference between the stock pedal feel and this one. It feels just like stock so you can DD it fine.

It grabs hard and looks to be build strong.

It does chatter, but that is to be expected.

We have been using it in the car for about 10 track days, and is starting to slip now at high rpm shifting. It has been put thru its paces, and driven harder than most cars, but if you plan on tracking your car I would recommend higher than the stage 3

might be a dumb question but you pay the extra 85 for the cylinder and bearing right?

I had issues with the center hole in the clutch being on the small side, alignment tool wouldn't go through it.

had to file it down to make it fit.

Correct, the $85 gets you the slave/TOB if you select that option. If you dont choose that option, you dont get one.

Is the stage 4 going to be enough to hold an EFR / ZFR setup?

I have to be missing something here, does someone have a link to where they purchased a new stock flywheel?

No, I wasn't missing anything, seriously $600 for a flywheel ... the the price of the clutch + fw you could just buy a twin plate.

PM Mongorat he usually has new flywheels. I believe ZZP sells them for a pretty good deal as well.

That is why you buy the LSJ flywheel, it is only $125 (same thing as the LNF). I dont know anyone who buys the LNF flywheel.

This may be a dumb question, but do you have to replace the Flywheel if I get a stage 3 or better. I only have about 23k miles on the stock one. What are the benefits and the downside if its not a must?

You don't have to if you don't have much wear on it. Risk is if you have bad wear on your flywheel, it will destroy you new disc in the clutch.

Most surface it or get a new one.

As long as you get a KY clutch, the stated difference does not mater... You can use a LSJ flywheel with a KY clutch kit on a LNF. Direct bolt up, no modification.

Dont know, dont really care... The LSJ flywheel and KY clutch bolts on the LNF, no issues. 100's have this on the LNF.

Most know the LSJ is MUCH cheaper, and know this, so they dont even ask; no point to ask as no one will buy the LNF flywheel for 6 times more, when the LSJ does the same job.
