    I believe Welly fitted one to his S3 before he sold it to another member on here by the name of BurnS3. It may be worth dropping him a PM asking of his opion/experience with it.

    On the other hand I have just found a mini review of said flywheel in Welly's build thread. Please see>>> LINK

    I run a TTV billet flywheel, lots of gearbox chatter and it tipped the scales at about 4 kgs

    I have the one one welly fitted in my car S3. its F1 from the states.
    A little bit chatter at idle, the engine revs a lot more freely.
    Make sure if you go for a spring loaded clutch you get the right one.
    I had one made and it turned into a nightmare, the made it wrong and i had the box off 3 times.
    Less engine braking aswell, takes a little while to get used to, but well worth it imho

    I'm running a SMF that is weighted to the same as the OE DMF (about 12kgs). So the pedal feel and rev rate are the same as stock just a better bite. No real chatter either as it's not very light.

    The spring loaded clutch plate i had trouble with was made by CG motor sports.
    Do you have a flywheel yet or just looking for one?

    just re read our post.
    If you want a light flywheel.
    Andrews TTV one sounds good.
    The one i have came from America and takes about a week to get here.
    Personally i would send the flywheel to cg to make the clutch.
    The springs in the plate were touching the flywheel and not allowing it to engage any gears.
    It was a nightmare and wouldnt like to do that again.

    Or perhaps just avoid that company all together!

    I haven't bought a fly wheel yet and im in no rush at all, just waiting for funds... I have already got the dual friction clutch from cg clutches which is spring loaded, I would like a lightenend flywheel as it's not my everyday car, just for sunny week ends. Money isnt too much of an issue either. Cheers
