1 more problem, I popped about 4 engine control fuses (10A) Car runs fine without it ( I just drove it 10 miles and no problems) but looks like I'm going to have to mess with it

BTW I stalled the car on my first start up going in reverse. Wow does this thing GRAB (FX500) - didn't stall it anymore but even after driving with the light flywheel/pulleys it will take some getting used to. I don't think anyone else who hasn't experienced driving manual trans cars with this setups could do it, they'd give up. I have to completely adjust my muscle memory in my left leg (first unsprung disc)

Luckily I didn't just go from an OEM clutch and flyhwheel to this or I'd still be in my driveway stalling it. Haha

Jump in a car with a agressive twin disk LOL.

you need to get the rpms up by feathering the throttle while letting out on the clutch. Also as the clutch breaks in it gets easier to operate.

Well I drove her about 100 miles today and I got the hang of it almost. Did not stall once today. Only 1 stall when I first went to move it after it first started. Running great! Car feels more solid or connected to the shifter or something.

Installed my fx500 today. Damn you guys weren't kidding on how hard it grabs. Love the pedal feel. Stalled a few times but started to get the hang of it. Also replaced the 9lbs flywheel with a 12.6 lbs flywheel and prefer the drivablity with the slightly heavier flywheel. I'm very happy with this setup. Doesn't chatter anymore.

The funny thing is after getting used to driving the b14 with the fx500, my brain had to relearn how to drive my stock b15 which had me laughing.

Thanks to @morgans432 for the recommendation. Tell CM to send you a free clutch kit or at least a t-shirt lol.

Morgan is also partially the reason I got my FX500 too
