Description
 
Our lightweight steel, single piece flywheel.

We have had these flywheels manufactured specifically for us. We have chosen 4.85kg as we have found that this gives us the best compromise of weight vs inertia.

This flywheel will work with all Mazda MX5 NA, NB and NBFL 1.8 sized clutches and can be fitted to a 1.6 engine if replacing the clutch at the same time.

The main benefit of these flywheels is found during rev matching on down shifts. Experts in the heel and toe racing driver technique have noticed that they are able to make a quicker, matched down shift with less drivetrain shock, reducing the chance of unbalancing the car under heavy deceleration (Have a read on heel and toe to see how this works). Ultimately the lower weight of the flywheel allows the engines speed to change more rapidly, reducing the time taken during heel and toe shifts for the revs to match the next gear.

There is also a very small improvement on acceleration in the lower gears.

As with all light flywheels, the downside is less inertia, meaning that the flywheel stores less energy than a heavier one. This can make it a little tougher to pull away and a little harder to break traction at the driven wheels through clutch kicking, but this is exactly the reason we have chosen 4.85kg as the ideal weight. It is light enough to make a staggering difference where needed, but with still enough weight for the car to be very compliant in daily use.
