Ratty, I still have your old Tanabe anti roll bar, and was certainly well worth it.

To be honest, I forgot I had one, removed it and sold it. I bought another years ago and it's back on the car.

Big Brakes.......ladyboys, reach arounds and shizzle,.......
Agreed, brakes don't make a difference on a regular daily driver.

My van has brembo 6 pots and 340mm discs. Brakes feel the same.
S660 has spoon 4 pots, feels the same.
Prelude has 330mm legend 4 pots, brakes the same.

All perform much much better when hot.

Looks....... EPIC.

You talked here about flywheel, has anyone lightened the stock one?
And what are the main benefits and disadvantages of daily and highway driving?
If everything else fails, read the manual!

with a lightened flywheel the engine revs up quicker and you can really tell the difference! i remember driving a mates stock 4g h22 vs mine which was standard h22 at the time apart from the lightened flywheel and it was :twisted:

Lightened flywheel is certainly a worthwhile improvement IMO.

I dont know if anyone has taken the oem flywheel and tried to lighten it - i suspect it might not be an easy job and would probably need a specialist machine shop to do the work.
I dont find any issues with lightened flywheel (Kaiten super karui) and atr clutch combo - i think it is all good.

Yep it needs an engine machine shop to lighten a stock flywheel (because you need a special machine to be able to balance it after - should be done with the crank you're going to use, ideally) but most can do it.

A guy in Bicester did this, not in my skill set.

This is the link, as this is my steering wheel he uses for advertising. Originally he was recommended to me by Hond R .
Hi @nalla. May I ask how long it took to get it done?
