Clutch and flywheel...
Two days ago I had my new FX400 clutch master and fidaza flywheel installed...
and to make a long story short...

...don't let anybody tell you going from a stock clutch to stage 4 is easy.
though...on a more optimistic note: high performance gearing is an amazing thing..since the install, launching from first gear is like night and day...the responsiveness goes up ten fold(when you hit the sweet spot)..driving my car is no longer just a simple fluid of movement, it's an art...i installed the two parts early because the guy who's installing my c2power turbo told me it would be a beneficial to have the clutch broken when i'm ready...O.K. i'm done now/goodnight all. thumbsup

He is very right... You'll want to enjoy your power right away..
However make sure your clutch is broken in right...
My clutch took over 800 miles in city traffic before it was really good..
