  • Lightweight flywheels?

    Popular amongst people here? Has everyone had the chatter that Tommy's (Roadster) did? I'm quite interested in the flyin miata flywheel, seems a good price.

    They are known for 'extra noise'...some more then others.

      Yeah, they make the clatter pretty damn loud. I'm still going to get another one though. :)

        I just got one from Flyin Miata. They sell two models, I got the 13 pound one since they warn you about the noise of the 10 pound one. I have no noise at all, unfortunately its been a year since I drove it before putting the flywheel in with a new motor so I cannot give any info on performance improvement.

          Mine was a Fidanza 8 lb.-er and it sounded like a cat gargling razor blades. But it revved like a street bike.

            See, that's what gets me. I had a lightweight flywheel in my Ion (went from a 21 pound flywheel to a 7 pound wheel, hoo boy) and I got tired of the flywheel chattering on decel. I liked the revving though. I'm just hooked on having a silent car.

              I've had multiple lightweight flywheels. My only complaint was the incompatibility of the Fidanza with Exedy clutches. I never noticed excessive noise...but then again, i might not have hears it over the other lovely noises coming from the car :)

                  Oh, another thing that has not been brought up in here is the inherant nature of lightweight flywheels to cause idle droop. But once you get used to it, you don't even notice it.

                    If we're talking about effects of flywheels, the car will slow down a hell of a lot faster in gear than before. And when you turn the key to shut it off, the engine STOPS. No half-hearted spin, just dead stop. It's cool.

                        FOUR POUNDS? Nice. That's not for the triple clutch unit, is it?

                            so many ups and downs to everything you do to a car. I say if it drives great who gives a **** about noise. Your going for performance not grace.

                              Yup, and I think Tommy will certainly agree.
