A new clutch and flywheel for the Exige

Purchased a new clutch and flywheel for the Exige. The clutch and flywheel weight less than 18 pounds. The clutch is a twin disc setup for street and track. Now to see what it is like in the car.

I had no idea CM made it for our cars, I always knew of the ACT HDSS. Clutch will feel much firmer than OEM.

Nice! I installed a twin disk on my Aston Martin, it was much lighter than stock and really improved the rev-ability of the engine. A very worth while investment. On the Aston, it's a $4000 clutch (and I paid to have it installed for another $1500, so relatively, this one is a bargain .



@Kubera - Not necessarily. On the Aston, the pedal pressure went WAY down even though the clutch is designed for much higher torque than the single clutch.

I second Shinoo, looking forward to your feedback.

In all the CM's I have installed in the past on BMW's, the clutch feel was much firmer, that's what I have experienced with CM clutches.
