    What are the benefits of have a flywheel lightened and balanced?

    It will be easier to carry due to the lightness and with it being balanced you'll be able to carry it on your head or with one hand without fear of it falling off cause it's not balanced.

    with the whole rotating assembly done it will be alot happier to rev, with less vibration, and less wear on the whole assembly.

    So like Westy said faster revs. Less vibration sounds good too, make the most out of the gear box mount!
    Got the text of Ben today to say he has picked up the flywheel and that its now so small "like a metro one" were his exact words!

    If a lot lighter it'll rattle, revs will drop faster between gear changes and you'll need more revs to pull away. You'll get used to it though and it'll be sweet lol.

    I did get the warning that I will stall a lot too! I trust bens work and im sure he would get it lightened to what he thinks to maximise its potential.

    I didn't know that it would drop the revs quicker, learn something new everyday

    I understand now the revs will go up quicker, but i would have thought being lighter flywheel I would think it would keep spinning from the momentum meaning it would take longer to slow down. That was just my thinking... How wrong I am!!!

    Did you fit the brake lines yet? It was always my first upgrade on my 'old' cars and make a hell of a difference, but on a 'new' (all my cars have been pre 1990 before my A3) car I wonder what they are like?

    As long as you have the clutch and flywheel for the job it should be find. Only issue now is the crumbling 10 year old gearbox. I'm more worried about that letting go then the clutch.

    Nothing apart from take off. I did a 5k launch on standard clutch the other week. Thankfully it wasnt as brutal as it was a bit damp and span up. I`d stick the gopro on and film it in the dry but i fear it`d smell horrible lol.

    I am in no way clued up on flywheels, but credit goes to Ben so sorting it out. From what people have told me this FW will be a great addition. Looking forward to tomorrow to have it fitted.
