Default loose flywheel nut

I have a fioroni turbo sliding clutch and the nut loosened up last season;I tightened it and it was fine for the last race. I just took it apart to put on my new P5 and i see the flared inside piece(name?) goes flush into the flywheel. It did tighten up BUT think I would be better( safer) getting a new flywheel?
BTW I had a heck of a time getting it off the old engine. It was on tight. Still I see damage where it was spinning

If i were you i would get a new collet ( the brass cone). If the collet didnt spin in the flywheel its fine. just use small amount of blue loctite on the nut and make sure the nut is real tight. Use a piston lock or channel locks on flywheel when you tighten it.

the collet did spin in the flywheel . you can see rub marks. i think i'l going to get a new flywheel and collet just to be safe.

Now the problem is do I get another fioroni clutch or the new werks set up...hummm:-)

I've had good luck with standard 3 shoe setup. Easy to tune and consistent.

me too . what got me away from the 3 shoe was this RB s7. even with 1.1 springs and drilled shoes it still bogged down on me. The reason was I was ( neubie) using a smooth throttle application and not constantlly blipping the throttle in the slow stuff to keep it on the pipe. When I got the fioroni clutch with black and all 3 springs it was just perfect.
I dont like blipping the gas and constantlly loading and unloading the suspension to keep the motor in it's power band. Maybe as I get better this will change.

Hence I got a P5 for next season:-)

I'm good at geting a 3 shoe apart and togeather but one slip and there is going to be blood flying LOL!
