Oh it's a bike. WAY back before I got in to a miata I was pondering a TU250. Took the class to get my M, scared the shit out of me. A dino powered bike doesn't operate like a human powered bike. Sill have the M, but have up dino bike dreams and got a Miata instead. GLWS but it's not for me.

No. I just saw that Ruckus Composites appeared to be dabbling in them.

Agree, light weight fly wheels are all sorts of goodness. When I had the stock clutch replaced for the first time on the NB I went with a 1.6 Toda racing flywheel and a 1.6 clutch to match. Many happinesses.

James... SV? You have a Lambo?

That is quite a deal. I bought Aidan's flywheel cheap. I'm going to throw a new face on it to not be a total brokedick. And I picked up an ACT for like $60. Gotta love deals.

Agree. Downshifts are so much better with a light flywheel. Love it.

And those look like styrofoam.

Anyone wanna buy my SV?

Re: Official PDX Lounge

People make ltw flywheels out to be way more problematic than they are. In fact, I'd say driveability is improved.

10#'s on the heavy side.

Its the 10 pounder though. Wish it was the 13. Afraid my wife will hate it. I am taking a risk on the level 1 because I want her to drive it occasionally.

I bought that FM happy meal that has been on CL for a while for $200. Missing the tool and throwout bearing. Rest of it is in pretty good shape and has the pilot bearing. For $200 I figure it is worth a try.

Anyone have a clutch alignment tool and rear main tool I can borrow now that I think about it. I can pay you with a LS factory pigtail. I somehow have like 3 of those things now haha.

Ya I got my self that huge jack a while ago, the one that can lift 24". Just never got around to needing taller stands, though looking at my todo list, I now want taller stands.

I am in the same boat. I need to do my clutch soon. Wanna go halfsies on them and I just borrow them a few times?

Begi9.

Though he hasn't started drunk posting insults to customers yet, so maybe a little premature.

aidandj There have been issues with the turbo kit lately. It spools like ass because it's the wrong A/R. The downpipe doesn't fit. Etc etc.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Just read through the Fab9 piston thread. Too awesome. I like when someone asked whether the packaging didn't appear original and/or already opened. On point AF.

I ordered my mounts and TB through them because the Thanksgiving pricing was amazing but I'm glad I'll never have to deal with those people again.

It was satisfying when they begged me to remove the scathing reviews I left because they were "a small operation" and "it hurts business".

Don't get me started on the fab 9 shittercooler, ruined my entire track season chasing an overheating issue caused by that turd cause its so dense that air physically can barely make it through.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I have the harbor freight 6 ton stands. They will get the car a full 24" off the ground, plenty of room for trans clearance if necessary, exhaust is easy. Had to get one of the HF steel jacks to get the car that high, the 1.5ton aluminum racing jack we all use won't go high enough. They occasionally go on sale, and or use the 20% coupon.

aidandj Customer orders 8.6:1 pistons. Received 10:1. Calls to check why, gets told that he will be fine with 10:1 pistons. Still doesn't have 8.6:1 pistons.
