So far this kit has 16k miles on it with no issues, Only took 3 attempts to install it correctly lol! first timer here. No chatter noticeable, does 4k launches all day long! - Clutch Type: Performance Street - Friction Disc: Standard Full Face - Flywheel Type: Exedy Lightweight
This review is in addition to my previous review. Over the last several years, I've put around 60k on this clutch. This week, I pulled the engine in my G35, and had the opportunity to inspect and service my clutch/flywheel combo. Wow, I'm amazed at how much of the friction material is left. So much in fact, that I reinstalled it instead of replacing! I'm extremely please with this combination, and when the time comes, I'll be going this route again! I should mention, that my commute is mostly highway, but I live in a bit city. Also, the car sees occasional weekend track days and autocross circuits. Without hesitation, I'd recommend this kit to anyone. It's inexpensive, and has proven bulletproof for my driving style. Thanks Z1!
Purchased the Z1 lightweight flywheel, mild performance clutch and full face disc. Very impressed with the flywheel build quality and exceptional value for performance. Clutch feel is very similar to OEM and grabs hard. The installer was very impressed as well and claimed it was one of the best feeling 350Z clutches he had ever driven. The car revs so fast but offers nearly OEM drivability and feel. It is a little noisy at idle and low RPM under load but the feel and performance outweigh the noise. Just buy it and go have fun!
I had the stock clutch and flywheel before this kit and I love the difference. I got the mild performance with excedy lightweight flywheel and the only CON to this kit is the flywheel chatter with the excedy flywheel. If you don't want to hear the flywheel chatter at idle consider getting the mid weight or Z1 lightweight which was sold out when I bought it. Smooth as butter now. 5/5
Just installed my new clutch assembly & solid mass flywheel. I ordered it on Sunday and received confirmation on Monday and it was delivered Thursday . Excellent price a real bang for your buck. Nissan wanted $1,800 just for the parts. I still want to replace my clutch master & slave. I already had the steel braided line but, I will install it when I replace the hydraulic system. It did NOT come with new bolts unfortunately but no biggy. Another issue with replacing the clutch in the G35 is that the drive shafts does not have any motion to it to lube the needle bearings in the U-joints. I may have to turn it 180 to get it back to where it was. I got a little vibration it is NOT from the kit. It happens at high speed like 70-80mph. I'm thinking the u-joints cause they were sticky. Anyway great product I always go to Z1 Motor Sports for the best deals around. I bought a clutch 7 years ago for $300ish. Unfortunately everything has gone up in price since then. Great product reputable products, greats prices. I would highly recommend that anyone use Z1 Motor Sports for their parts needs all. And if you are reading this and need a clutch assembly i.e. clutch, press.plate, bearing,bushing,braided line &solid mass flywheel for a 2005ish Infiniti G35 ...buy this kit it is the best one you will find for the price. Exedy parts and Z1 flywheel. Or you can upgrade any of the parts to an even higher performance model. But, for a better that stock option go with the base.
I just recently got this combo (Mild Clutch/Standard Full Face disc /and Z1 Midweight flywheel). My mechanic installed this alongside with replacing the master and slave cylinder. I was shocked how well this product feels. My mechanic said everything fit in just perfectly. Everything came with the kit and I did not need to buy any other parts. In terms of performance, I'm really happy with how well the clutch engages. My engine revs so much better and accelerating off the line just feels so much more direct. I've not been too big a fan of driving other cars before with really light flywheels due to the chatter soI definitely decided to stick with the midweight flywheel. I could not be happier with this product. This setup definitely feels good for daily driving.
