Fidanza has introduced a lightweight aluminum flywheel for the highly acclaimed 2006-2007 Honda Civic 1.8L.
The new Civic, featuring more standard horsepower than ever before, has been lauded by Kelly Blue Book
and MotorWeek, in addition to receiving Motor Trend’s highly coveted “Car of the Year” award in 2006.
However, Fidanza is reminding owners that Honda’s celebrated sport compact can produce even better
“By replacing the original flywheel with a lightweight Fidanza aluminum flywheel, Civic owners will
experience better acceleration and increased horsepower to the wheels,” said Bob Scheid, vice president,
According to Scheid, adding a Fidanza flywheel will allow for a sharper, crisper throttle response as well as
easier downshifting because each tap of the throttle instantly brings the RPM’s to the precise point where
the gearbox easily slides into place.
Fidanza’s 2006-2007 Honda Civic flywheel (part #191181) is made from high-quality machined 6061 T6
aluminum. It features a 1050 steel friction surface with CNC machined fastener holes and chamfers. It can
be paired with just about any clutch disc material available – from organic to Kevlar(r) and even sintered iron.
Incredibly durable, the product is finished with a heat-treated ring gear and military grade fasteners.
“For more than two decades, enthusiasts have embraced the Civic, modifying the car for better performance.
Fidanza continues to help them achieve their goals by offering high-quality, affordable and durable
performance parts,” Scheid said.
The Ford AOD transmission has proven itself as a reliable performer with factory and mildly upgraded performance applications. However, a few upgrades are necessary if you’re looking to move it into the high performance level. To help drivers achieve those high performance numbers, the drivetrain experts at TCI® have introduced the 1980-’93 Ford AOD Ultimate Master Overhaul Kit.
Designed for heavy-duty strength against the stresses of higher horsepower applications, this kit features premium-grade Alto Red Eagle friction clutches and Kolene-treated steel clutches. The Alto Red Eagle friction clutches increase the “holding force” or coefficient of friction, an empirical property of contacting materials, while the Kolene-treated steel clutches disperse heat equally among the frictions and steels. This combination of clutches provides higher performance and durability under higher horsepower applications, and the cohesive lining allows the transmission a better chance of longevity. One final feature is the Kevlar overdrive band to improve the “apply and release” functions while reducing wear.
This master overhaul kit is ideal for any high performance street or all-out racing application that aims to match the stresses of high horsepower engines with bullet-proof drivetrain durability.
For those Corvette owners looking to add even more torque-holding capacity to their vehicles, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has designed a flywheel and clutch assembly kit that allows for the installation of a Corvette ZR1clutch on LS2, LS3 and other LS-based engines. The Lingenfelter 6-bolt flange flywheel is an OEM spec steel design created specifically to accept the production 2009 General Motors ZR1Corvette dual disk clutch pressure plate assembly. This allows the ZR1 clutch to be installed on LS2, LS3 and other LS-based engines that use the more common 6-bolt crank flange. Lingenfelter’s new clutch system is designed to provide excellent street drivability and good clutch pedal feel, while still offering exceptional power and torque holding capacity.
The Lingenfelter ZR1 flywheel and clutch kit includes all of the major components required for installation in a C6 Corvette, and fits in the 2005-2010 C6 Corvette (LS2, LS3 and LS7 equipped vehicles). However, due to the larger diameter of the LS9 clutch, it does not fit in 1997-2004 C5 Corvette bell housings.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s 6-bolt flywheel weighs 19.1 lbs. and, when combined with the pressure plate and disk assembly, has a total weight of 57.4 lbs. While the package is roughly equivalent to the production Z06 clutch and flywheel assembly weight of 56.9 lbs., it is 6.7 lbs. lighter than the production ZR1 clutch and flywheel assembly.
A 9-bolt version of the Lingenfelter steel LS9 flywheel (Part# L360040309 at $824.95) is also available as a direct replacement flywheel for the ZR1 Corvette. Replacing the factory LS9 cast iron flywheel with the LPE steel flywheel saves 6.7 lbs. of rotating mass on the ZR1 Corvette.
In addition, Lingenfelter has engineered a slave/actuator cylinder spacer (Part # L360031410 at $98.95) that allows installation of the flywheel and clutch assembly in the 2010 Chevy Camaro SS bell housing.
The 6 bolt steel flywheel is available as an individual item (Part # L360010105 for $824.95) or in kit form (Part # L360020105 for $1,499.95). The kit form includes:
* Lingenfelter steel flywheel
* GM pressure plate and disk assembly
* GM clutch slave cylinder (aka actuator or releaser)
The Lingenfelter Performance Engineering LS9 Flywheel and Twin Disc Clutch Assembly can be purchased direct from Lingenfelter.
For more than 30 years, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has created a matchless heritage of bringing impressive new capabilities to the world’s most sought-after sportscars. This legendary record of precision engineering continues today, as Lingenfelter’s highly skilled production team continues to lead the field in custom designed vehicle packages and high-performance aftermarket components that refine the already impressive late model vehicles.
Centerforce® is proud to introduce this 11-inch Centerforce II clutch assembly that has an increased holding capacity over the standard 11-inch long style clutch assembly for 1965 through 1971 vehicles equipped with 390”, 427”, 428”, and 429” engines.

The Centerforce® IIpart numberMST559000 (Pressure Plate, & Disc included) is now available. Also available is the Dual Friction part number DF559000 (Pressure Plate, & Disc included).
Clutchless manual transmission is simply a manual gearbox mated to an electronic-controlled clutch. The car has two pedals only, without clutch pedal. When changing gears, the driver just need to push the shifter. Sensors monitor the pressure of shifter and accelerator, in case the shifter is pushed and the accelerator is loosened, computer will signal the clutch to disengage the linkage between engine and gearbox, and continuing monitor the progress of gearchange. When the gearchange is finished, the clutch engages again..
As I remember, the earliest clutchless manual was developed by small engineering firms rather than car makers. Ferrari Mondial T and Ruf 911 were among the earliest cars to feature it as option. It did not catch the attention of big car makers until Saab introduced its version called “Sensonic” in around 1995. Road test found Saab 900 Sensonic ran as fast as the manual version.
Clutchless manual costs just a fraction more than a conventional manual. It relieves driving effort, making gearshift easier while having no disadvantages of automatic transmission. It is a logical step to improve conventional manual transmission, although being a small step.
|Advantage:||Cheap, light, no much performance loss.|
|Disadvantage:||No full automatic mode. Not as quick or smooth as Selespeed etc.|
|Who use it ?||Saab Sensonic system, Renault Zoom system, Alpina B10, Mercedes A-class, MCC Smart.|

Twin-clutch gearbox is undoubtedly a revolutionary technology for manual transmission. Its impact to the automotive world is even greater than automated manual gearbox such Ferrari F1 system. Twin-clutch gearbox was first put into production by BorgWarner, which calls it “DualTronic”. It was first used in Audi TT 3.2 in the name “DSG” (Direct-Shift Gearbox).
Like automated manual gearbox, BorgWarner’s DualTronic can operate as a semi-automatic, where the driver changes gears via buttons, paddles or conventional shifter. There is no clutch pedal, because the clutch is automatic while the gearshift is implemented by electro-hydraulic actuators. For relax driving, there is also a full automatic mode, where computer determines which gear to be selected. Read more…
The best of both worlds is what most petrolheads describe a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) as and not many argue that this is probably the first meeting ground of the manual and automatic transmissions. Imagine having just the right amount of torque at absolutely the right time while simultaneously being able to get rid of the clutch pedal (any learner out there? Get my point?). And the best part is that like any absolutely brilliant technology the answer is simplicity itself. Instead of the same lone clutch engaging and disengaging everytime you wanna fiddle with the gears one clutch disengages while another engages. The name is pretty self-explanatory, a DCT has two clutches, one for odd and the other for even gears.
