    Hi, yes you can get rid of it. Luk do a clutch kit that includes a replacement "old fashioned" flywheel.
    No real noticable difference in the way the car drives. Have fitted these before to a couple of cars

    The conversions have been known to snap crankshafts in the past as your applying all that force without any cushioning

    To reduce vibration and ease take up of the clutch basically.
    And regarding the 400bhp Astra what clutch are you using in that ?
