Hi guys,

I'm about to buy a Flywheel and Cluch for my FN2.

Was going to by Toda, but then found out that the Clutchmasters flywheel is actualy lighter than Toda's one!! Its weights 3.47 kg! And cheaper to!!



Also, i hear the cluch is much better to use...



So, has anyone used these before??
Any opinions and reviews??

Thanks guys...

If you do change your clutch, you must post a 'How to' for anyone else wishing to do the same. We'd be pleased to hear how it goes. Pictures too, of course.

Wasted 5hours of my life yesterday on one of these!

Didn't fit without a couple of hours filing the flywheel as it was smaller than the crank, then didn't dissengage so had to strip it down and fit a spacer on the balljoint to extend the fork movement!

Worked fine when it was finally back together though.

Yes was flywheel and clutch kit.
Didn't come with dowel pins either so had to use old ones which were really tight.

Kit works fine was just a nightmare to fit.
I remember TGM having all sorts of issues getting them to fit and in one case the fella drove off with his original clutch back in the car and his money back after Tom had his box out several times as it wouldn't engage!

you can buy a fidanza flywheel and an excedy stage I or stage II clutch kit. Both are very good and cheaper than toda (toda clucth is made by excedy the flywheel I do not know).

But Why are you going to install this? a LSD install also?

Below is what is printed on an A4 piece of paper supplied with the clutch, if you had read it it would have saved you a lot of time.

IMPORTANT
Clutchmasters Clutch fitting note



When fitting the enclosed clutch please add some spacers under the pivot ball to a thickness of between 1.5 mm and 2 mm.

If any clarification is required please email
[email protected] and we can return some photographs.


Thankyou
CPL Racing
Also there are dowel pins supplied with the flywheel, they were in a small plastic bag in the box, I checked this myself.

With regard to the flywheel being a tight fit on the crank, a small amount of heat from a blow torch would suffice.

1. The crank was 0.2mm bigger than the flywheel. It didn't fit.
Your telling me you seriously want to be heating up a flywheel to expand it over a crank??
It's also never going to come off again without some serious heat and hammer abuse and do you really want to be subjecting a crank/bottom end to that?

Preferred to spend a while carefully filing out and scraping the hole rather than using a blowtorch and it eventually fitted perfectly.

2. Pins were supplied just heard, they fitted the pressure plate fine but were too big to fit on the flywheel to locate it correctly.
Again removal to file down the pins but think they used the OEM ones. Other option was drilling out the flywheel holes. They are just for locating so why such a tight fit?

3. Spacer got overlooked after all the stress of above 2 points.

The clutch works fine. Just seems a lot of extra work to make it fit when others go straight on. Maybe this was a 1 off though??

Have you changed this? Did you get new bearings from the Honda service and how much you paid?

Let me know how it feels with the kit from CluchMasters.

The shafts and the switching fork should be expanded so that the Quaife LSD had to built in.

It was with the installation of the Quaife LSDs also new warehouse (1x front, 1x rear) installed.
It is original stock of Honda.

About the price I can give you about it soon, if I get my car and the bill had received.
I get to all parts as a regular customer 10% discount.

I will have the experience with the parts used up report.

Here is a picture of my TWM Performance Short Shifter since yesterday I have with me:

Man the TWM Performance ShortShifter, does not fit our CIvic Fn2,
I've already tried to installed some months ago, it doesn' fit .
I had to return the Short Shifter back to TWM.


Thanks for the above pics with gearbox, flywheel, lSD and the others ...

How does it feel now the new clutch, flywheel and pressure plate ?
How hard is it to engage it ?

Let me know how it feels with the kit from CluchMasters.
The feeling of pressure of the pedal is the same as before.

I could previously only in severe snow and with heavy wet ride but my first impression, I would like to sometimes write in this thread.

The new clutch has a very small grinding point, the relatively late. It thus extends the clutch pedal just a few centimeters to press, so you can insert the gear.
This allows both a comportable both very athletic / fast change of gear.
The order further 1.3 kg lighter flywheel makes especially in the lower and medium speeds noticeable.
The differential lock works very reliably even on wet pavement and covered.
The VSA (anti-slip control / stability control) must now work in conjunction with the LSD no longer so often intervene.
It takes only realtiv rarely, but works very well with the LSD together.

More impressions, I will of course post here again.

My EBC Yellow Stuff sports brake pads for my K-Sport Big-Brake-Kit are also arrived today:

The TWM SS doesn't fit our cars ... if you put it you won't be able to shift in the even gears (2, 4, 6) - because the SS hits the shifter mounting.
I wrote about this and send them pics to TWM, they concluded that I have SS from the factory :) , so I return SS back to them .
So I guess it's good only for Civic SI , but not for FN2.

The short shifter is fit, but it needs something on the console plastic be removed has been told.


My report after approximately 650 km:


The car now pushes in each speed is much more forward.
Once again a very large piece more than before with the Hondata Reflash ECU in combination with the stock components.
Currently I drive the Aftermarkedcomponents in combination with the Stock ECU.
The car can be a lot more agile with full tank than ever drive with an empty tank.

Even the differential lock works very reliable and you can feel it in every life situation. Especially when turning or cornering rides, but also when accelerating whether the start or if the car is already in motion.
No matter whether wet or dry it is always the maximum possible traction available.

The clutch is now especially from the stand pleasant drive away than at the beginning. The grinding point is very short, late and a sporty but comfortable.

The combination harmonizes well with the VSA.

Simply unique, and their must have feel it once.
