JWT clutch/flywheel review

Well, been driving for a day and have some impressions. For starters, I had to adjust the clutch pedal due to the fact that the JWT setup is at least 1/2 inch thinner than the OEM setup. The engagement point was about 1/4" off the floor. I prefer a much higher point. The car starts and shuts off much quicker. When I turn the key off, the motor doesn't spin for 1/2 a second like before. It's off instantly. The motor still hangs up a bit while driving, but this is more a funtion of the electronic throttle body than the flywheel. Pedal pressure is a little higher than stock, but not enough to be bothersome. The clutch engages smoothly with no chatter. One drawback is that powershifts are much more difficult due to the loss of flywheel effect. It can be done, but you need to pay close attention to making sure your at the correct rpm. I'm starting to wish I could get a dog-box for the Z.
