Does any body have an old set up on the shelf they would part with cheaply?

I talked with SPEC Clutch. They do a lot of high performance and semi custom work for racing and hot rods and have a good reputation.

They will be happy to look at manufacturing a light weight clutch and fly wheel set up for our cars and I think it will be a reasonable cost. They need a sample to work from. I am not thinking of a crazy triple disc set up that weighs 5 lbs, is not street able and requires changing the stock hydraulics. Stock bolt in set up that shaves 25% over stock and a bit higher clamping force is my goal.

I would like to avoid the turn around time when my clutch comes out (some day), so looking for an old set up they can work from.

What are peoples thoughts? I imagine there are reasons this has not been done in the past. Is the fly wheel already super light weight?

Yes I have a used clutch and flywheel from my 95 S4s. It came with the car when I purchased it 5 or so years ago. Probably not worth reconditioning.

Any differences between the clutches and flywheels for the Citroen vs Renault 4 cylinder cars?

Unfortunately the S4s is different than other years. SPEC is not going to recondition, they need the old parts for measurement,

I think they are different, the parts places advertise them separately.

Which style are you looking for? I can assure you the OEM flywheel on an '85 Turbo Esprit is not lightweight.
