Thank you. You have rated this product.

9.8 lbs! Stock OEM flywheels have the counterweight built into them. The ACT rear counterweight is needed when installing ACT light flywheel on Mazda. ACT light flywheels are NOT supplied with the counterweight and must be purchased separately. ACT XACT flywheels significantly improve engine response and acceleration, and give a higher degree of performance than the original stock flywheels.

All ACT XACT flywheels are designed as a single piece. The one-piece design reduces a chance of failure and allows for a uniform and efficient heat transfer from the clutch, eliminating loose ring gears and warped inserts. ACT XACT flywheels are manufactured using chromoly forgings, also known as chromium-molybdenum steel, a metal which is three times more rigid than aluminum.

The materials on ACT XACT flywheels are properly distributed for good heat tolerance, maximum strength and lower inertia. Furthermore, ACT heat-treats their flywheel forgings for strength and induction, and hardens their ring gears for the longest gear life. ACT XACT flywheels can be resurfaced without the need to buy additional parts. All ACT XACT flywheels are SFI certified to meet proper safety standards.

The ACT XACT ProLite flywheels are the lightest XACT flywheels. They offer the best throttle response and lowest inertia. ACT manufactures their flywheels using high-tech CNC equipment and computer balancing to offer better reliability and smooth operation at high RPMs. ACT engineers put a significant amount of time into research to strategically slot XACT ProLite flywheels to lower inertia without sacrificing strength and heat dissipation. ACT recommends XACT ProLite flywheels for Road and Rally Racing applications only.

Thanks for making this work and providing great customer service! I had a full weekend with the install, but man was it worth it. The flywheel was such a good choice. I can't believe how much easier rev-matching down shifts are. The ACT is surprisingly easy to live with, even with the engagement point very low. I'll tackle that when it stops raining. Thanks again for making this happen this weekend.

First I want to again thank you for working with me on this muffler. I have almost 100 miles on it now, and it has a nice mellow sound. a little Bass, but not too much. A little louder than stock, but not too loud. Plus it is nice inside the car with the top up. I am happy so far I bought this one.

I belong to a local Miata club, and am very active with it. When Spring comes I will tell everyone how much I like the muffler, and how great you are to work with. Maybe I can get some extra business for you.
