email the guys at ZX3tuning.com

the Zetec flywheels are 11lbs which is perfect for turbo or SC or those NA people who don't want the crazy "touchy" feel of a 8lbs unit.
i have one in my car along with the full Clutchnet clutch and it is amazing. Jeffro on FJ(in FL) holding 400fwhp with the same setup.

there is a SVT flywheel from Clutchnet at the 13lbs mark.

these are killer flywheels and clutch systems.
right now, Clutchnet is still working on a SVT pressure plate.
Clutchnet, unlike other clutch makers, do not simply heat-treat the fingers on the diaphram but actually re-engineer the entire diaphram, change the pivot points and add in extra fingers to keep pedal pressure as close to stock as possible at the same time getting 50% more clamping force out of the pressure plate.
the stock Zetec PPs have around 1000-1100psi while the clutchnet PPs come in just under 1500psi which is MORE than enough for anything but the ultimate race setups.

the other nice thing about clutchnet is they have both solid and sprung hub discs in many many different disc materials to suit your power or intended driving arena's. this allows you to built the perfect clutch for your car and you! :)

Clutchnet has been "working" on the SVT version for years. Dont hold your breath. It's not gonna happen.

Here's an email from one of their vendors (not saying the name this doesn't harm the relationship they are trying to build) but this shows how he's been frustrated as well. He's trying to get these things off the ground and clutchnet is completely dropping the ball.

David
they currently only makes discs and flywheels, they have not really
made any progress on the pressure plates as they needed to be
completely redesigned to get the clamping power we wanted. Now they
don't seem to be doing much more than dragging ass on getting me some
prototypes made.

sorry for giving you any false hope but i cannot control how other
shops work.

i have not checked in with them for a while and will do so today.

thank you for your inquiry

bela,
the only thing missing for the SVT is the pressure plates. the flywheels and discs are ready to go and the discs will work with the stock pressure plates with a torque capacity of about 230lb/ft.

and it hasn't been "years" either, maybe one year tops since it was announced...
