  1. None of the one's that you mentioned, only the oem clutch kit (clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing)
  2. Not he just stay on his position, that he already checked with his Lawyer, that he doesn't have any obligation to fix the car. Poor Ethics & was a very bad recommendation. <_<
  3. I have a '02 996 C2 with just 47000 miles, I found that after my first DE track driving my car began to make clutch noises, the problem was the throw out bearing, the mechanic installed a new OEM clutch kit that included this part, just one week later that I went to my 2nd. DE, again the same noise, now the mechanic mentions that is the same problem, but that he will charge me again the same amount of labor, because the problem is the part. Does this cars have a weak throw out bearing?, Did you have this similar issue?, How do you take care of it? :cursing:
  4. Which type of brake pads do you recommend me, for my 996 that will be good in performance for DE, but will not be very noisy for driving on the street?.
  5. Hi geoffbaltz, I'm very interest on installing the same setup that you have SPEC Stage 1 plus the AASCO LWFW on a '02 996 C2. What has been your experience after the installation?, Did your ride improved?, Still noisy?, How does it behave on the street?, Compared to OEM which one do you prefer?. Did you had to specify on your order the sprung clutch, or all of them come that way?, What is included in the clutch kit (throw out bearing, etc)?
  6. Any one has experienced the SPEC 1 clutch & the Fidanza flywheel set up in the street and on the track?. I'm thinking on installing them on a '02 996 C2
  7. Hi racing97, Which setup do you have?, Price? :lightbulb:
  8. Where did you get your Alm flywheel FLW106411?, Is it made from Aluminum? Weight?,Number of bolts?, Price?, If it is not made from aluminum, why did you chose it?, any problem after installation?, your total parts cost? I was looking for another option beside the wide offering of the aluminum flywheels (because of the noise that they make), then I read an article called "Flywheels - On the fly" on the europeancarweb, and it mentioned the big advantage of the Single Mass Flywheel over the Dual mass, that beside the increased performance, it made some noise, (but probably not that noisy compared with the aluminum flywheels), also mentioned that Porsche went with this decision for better performance in the GT3, I found that the 03-04 Porsche 996 GT3 Carrera RS has it, and that part weights 11.5 lbs. I
  9. On my '02 996 C2, What do I need to replace my Dual Mass Flywheel for a Single Mass Flywheel ("RS" Version) (11.05 lbs.) ?
  10. My car has 47000 miles, at this time my clutch doesn't slip or grab is only the sound that is making from the throw out bearing, just wanted an advise from the experts before going to the repair shop. Great advises! :thankyou: :cheers:
  11. Have any one of you Guys changed the clutch to your 996?. I got divided opinion between 2 mechanics, one tell me that the flywheel can be machined & the other one told me, that flywheels are not machined that I need to buy a new one. Please advice. :help:
  12. On a unmodified 996, which clutch replacement do you prefer?
