She's a beaut, you'll love it. My 15% tax on purchase should make you feel better
It does, a little bit, thanks

Clutch for dual mass FW does NOT have springs.

Clutch for single mass DOES have the springs

In the dual mass setup the flywheel itself functions to keep down NVH and clutch chatter. The springs on the clutch for the single mass try to take up that functionality from at least the clutch chatter standpoint. You can't get away from the noise of the single mass.

I loved the noise of the SMF (not to mention the fun of rev matching with it). One of the best bits about the car. Every GT3 should have this.

Something tells me that I also would not mind or might even like the noise of the SMF, even though others kind of warned about it for a mostly street car.

I loved my LWFW at the track. Absolutely loathed it around town.

Feels great stalling on a Seattle hill.
In rush hour traffic.
With your track numbers on the sides.
Multiple times.

Went back to Dual Mass and never regretted it.

Track only cars should definitely have one. Rev matching is insane.

I"m assuming your C4 had an aftermarket flywheel and clutch setup?

The OEM lightweight flywheel for the GT3 (8.5 lbs for the 4.0 unit) coupled with the OEM clutch setup is almost identical from a driveability standpoint to the dual mass setup.

Sebro has a slotted version which are really nice. # 909384C (right rear) and # 909383C (left rear)

I will be at the Speed Gallery camp in Feb.
996TWINS dispenses some good advice. In the process of removing my PCCB rotors and pads, I installed the Serbo set up on the rear with Pagid pads, awesome. On the front I installed GIRO 2 piece rotors with Pagid Yellows.
