I'm looking to lighten up my flywheel, either by shaving it (professionally of course), or buying a lightweight one.

Tips? Do's Don'ts?

Thanks in advance

i agree with everyone. i think the biggest issue in shaving down your own flywheel is you might damage the rigidity and structure of the wheel. they spin pretty fast, you dont want that breaking in your bell housing. another issue would be it's balance.

Right on, thanks for the help guys just needed another opinion :)


edit: Has anyone done this mod? I need some opinions because i don't want to go too light to where the flywheel won't hold the rpms, but i would like to go as light as safely possible

i have a findanza, you wont regret a lightweight flywheel. and that's a myth about not being able to hold your rpms. its not hard at all. i remember there was a clutchmasters review on the clutch and flywheel a member bought. try looking for it and it will clear and ensure you that buying a lightweight flywheel is awesome =D

found it for ya
