Having a chat with someone the other day about Flywheels, having lighter ones fitted and their benefits or not, thought I would ask the masses to see what the general consensus is ?
Lets say Skyline flywheel is 20kg, and a lightweight one is 5kg and both are 310mm for the purpose of this discussion, I'm sure someone will come up with some maths on here
We came up with the below, and decided that BHP and Torque on a dyno might be affected only low down purely while kinetic energy was put in to the flywheel?
What are the pro's and con's of either ?
I'll update this list as we go...
PRO of Lightweight Flywheel
Race Car - Faster revving / Responsive engine
Road Car - Improved Fuel Economy
CON of Lightweight Flywheel
Road Car / Race Car - Idle speed might be less stable
Road Car - Easier to stall
Road Car - Might reduce off the line traction as lightweight flywheel will rev up faster
We can supply clutches too if needed for Brands such as the below :
