Lightening the flywheel


Recommended Posts

I go a bit further.  Those 3 location dowels serve no other purpose  -  so chop them out.   This is a Vitesse / GT6 flywheel and the lightest of them all.   Not fitted to my 2.5PI Saloon which has a modified 5kg cast iron.   The engine will pick up / accelerate far better with a light flywheel. and of course will de-accelerate which is a great asset when rallying.    If balanced; crank etc. with equal combustion chambers, this will give a smooth engine.    Heavier flywheels lead to comfortable driving over hill and dale; the engine torque is maintained requiring less work with the throttle.  A very clever fine line with modern saloons and vans.
