An OEM clutch is not sprung hub and shouldn't address the rattle issue at all?

You really need to have a sprung hub system and it depends on the flywheel you have on your car - we usually sell them as a package because we use a different flywheel that is machined to accept a sprung-hub clutch.

James, do you guys have any experience with the FX100 (with rigid clutch disc) paired with a stock flywheel on an e46 6-spd? I had a local shop install this combination on my car earlier this year but after multiple install attempts (each using a new clutch) as well as shipping my clutch, flywheel, and transmission to CM to see if they could sort things out, we never could get it to fully disengage. We finally gave up on getting the FX100 to work properly and returned to a stock clutch which has worked flawlessly ever since. Just curious if you have ever run into similar problems with the 6-spd applications or if there is some reason why it would only work with the JB Racing flywheel and not a stock flywheel.

Shouldn't be an issue, assuming you got the right parts. We have never had the problem and I would have to investigate to know.
