Alright so I figure I'll replace the clutch too. I don't really want to buy a new flywheel but how many times can I get it machined? Ive already taken it in once.

Having it re-machined won't be a problem.

The benefit of the lightweight aluminum flywheel I bought is:

1. Less drivetrain loss
2. rpms rev faster
3. Is MUCH faster from a roll! I love turning onto a street in 2nd gear and laying into it at the end of a turn. It just takes off like an animal!
4. You never have to re-machine it. It has pads (I don't know what else to call them) that you can remove, and purchase new ones and attach them in place of the old ones. This allows you to never have to re-machine your clutch, or worry about it getting worn down.
