ACT 2600- scared of crankwalk...

I just purchased an ACT 2600 w/ a fidanza flywheel for my 99 GSX. I was aware that the 2600 could enhance the chances of crankwalk, but now basically everyone is pulling me away from it and I dont know what to do and need some advice. Should I just install it? or maybe look into something else?



Thanks for the help

Re: ACT 2600- scared of crankwalk...

Ok 95-96 had the real problems with crankwalk My buddy has a 2900 in his 95 AWD ...Just disconnect your clutch switch..The one that lets the car start when you push in the clutch...And stop pushit in the clutch when you start the car and let it warm up Every time and you should not have any problems....

Re: ACT 2600- scared of crankwalk...

97s are the most common to walk, then I believe its 95's.

But I need help FAST! I have the 2600 w/ street disk and Fidanza flywheel just sitting in my closet and Im wondering if I should go ahead and install it all...

Re: ACT 2600- scared of crankwalk...

Think of it this way, if it happens thats an excuse to swap a 6-bolt and fear no more.

That's what I was gonna say, its an excuse to swap in a 6 bolt. I recommend just installing the thing, as it was stated above I would do what you can to avoid it using the above advice and just squeeze the steering wheel and pray every time you take a left hand turn.

Re: ACT 2600- scared of crankwalk...

Hmm. This is tough lol. I read this thread and it makes me want to keep the 2600. If I make a few calls to local DSM chops, they tell me otherwise and to stay away from the 2600....both of the ones that Ive called said that, and as well members in South Florida DSM. They all suggest running a 2100. Im really REALLY stuck.
