You could get it from www.i-m-racing.com for $449 + shipping, but it says that it's discountinued. That really sucks 'cuz it's the lightest & I was gonna buy one down the road frown

It's not the lightest the fidanza weighs in at 7.5 lbs. You can still get, most places have to order it from japan. a good 1 to 2 month wait when i called. Even the fidanzas are on back order. It just depends if you want an aluminiun or a chromoly.

I would give suprastore a try. They usually have everything on hand & their shipping is fast. I ordered my Tanabe strut bar from them and I received it in less than a week.

my bad I was thinking of another jap co. 5.5 it pretty light. I'm not sure. does going that light casue drivabiliy problems. lack of torque to get your car moving?

LACK OF TORQUE!!!! HELL NO!! the lighter the flywheel is the more torque you can gain out of crank. it's like using that thing to make butter, at first it's easy(light) and later it gets hard(heavy)... get it?
