For maximum acceleration there is no substitute for an lightweight flywheel. The decrease in rotating mass allows maximum engine revs to be reached very quickly, resulting in a startling decrease in acceleration time. In some racing organizations, lightweight flywheels have actually been outlawed because they give such a huge advantage.
RELIABLE AND SAFE!!
Our eClutchmaster lightweight flywheel® is an ideal performance modification because it has no disadvantages.
There are significant benefits of having a lightweight flywheel. Though it does not create additional horsepower, the flywheel does allow the engine to more rapidly transfer its power to the drive train. Due to its reduced mass, it allows an engine to have quicker throttle response and rev faster under acceleration. Conversely, under a drop throttle condition, the car will slow down quicker due to the less rotational mass at the crank. You lose nothing in reliability, safety, or drivability on the street. What you gain is neck-snapping acceleration from your car.
Using a lightweight, eClutchmaster lightweight flywheel is a race proven way to improve the performance of any street or race car. Lightweight flywheels have been used for many years by the world's most elite cars to improve both useable horsepower and extend engine life.
Because a 12lbs eClutchmaster light weight flywheel® has so much less rotating inertia than the stock 22-25lbs stock flywheel., it is easier on your synchros. When you downshift and do not perfectly equalize revs, your synchros must accommodate the difference in flywheel speed and input transmission speed. The lighter the flywheel the less the inertia the synchros must overcome. The longer your synchros last the longer your tranny will last because you are less likely to miss-shift and break things when your synchros are properly functioning.
Engine life is also increased by using a eClutchmaster lightweight flywheel®. Since our flywheel is so much lighter there is much less stress on the main bearings.
