Just ordered a LW Flywheel and Stage 3 clutch

Went to Beastpower.com and ordered a SPEC stage 3 Performance Clutch Kit and Lightweight Flywheel for my 535. I'm so stoked to get it in this weekend. paid for 2 day air so i can get it in ASAP. I needed a clutch bad and i figured i might as well upgrade while i'm in there. since i'm not payin labor i decided i'll pay just as much as it would cost to have someone else do the clutch install and get a Lightened Flywheel so my car will rev like a bike and a stage 3 clutch for when the turbo finally comes into the picture.

I'm very excited!!

i got a buddy who went to a racing school in canada and learned how to do it and i've done one on my old roomate's wrx with him and some other guys so i'm not that worried. there's no way it'll be harder than the little japanes awd. no room and more drivetrain to disassemble and worry about

well i'll post pics when i get back to my home computer but the results are pretty huge! the stock flywheel is 32 lbs and the new one weighs a whopping 10-11 lbs. clutch is lighter too and the stage 3 is different gettin used to for sure. cruised with a chipped 535 today on i-5 north by University of WA and took off on him (he wasn't raing) but i am definitely closer to keeping up with davids 285 hp rex... Not there yet though i don't think we have yet to actually race but we will soon i'm sure! very happy with it so far
