Lightweight Flywheel Manufacturers – Lighweight Aluminium Flywheels

Clutch and flywheel manufacturers from around the world.

In a car’s clutch, a flywheel connects to the engine, and a clutch plate connects to the transmission. You can see what this looks like in the figure below. more from how stuff works

Lightweight Flywheel/Aluminium Flywheel

20/20 Vision, Great Wenham, Colchester
An extensive and competitively priced range of billet steel reduced-inertia lightweight flywheels Can there be a more cost effective performance modification? Aluminium flywheels pulleys, competition valve guides, brake disc bells and caliper mounts, developed with the help of constructors and engine builders.

ACT
Advanced Clutch Technology, INC. (ACT) is a premier performance clutch kit manufacturer with more than 300 different applications and 500 performance clutch kits. The company’s product line features clutches and forged lighweight flywheels for the most popular vehicles in the sport compact, domestic and diesel truck market. ACT’s performance clutches and flywheels are used for street or race, including, but not limited to drag, drift, road and rally racing.

Selecting a clutch to provide the performance, quality and feel a driver demands can be challenging in today’s market. There are lots of performance clutch kit options, friction materials and advertising claims to choose from. ACT has been in the Sport Compact Industry for over 10 years. ACT products are designed to compliment a vehicles’ drive train system and engine’s modifications.

Autotech
One of the most overlooked areas for performance improvement is the drivetrain. Many people disregard clutch, lightweight flywheel and gearbox modifications in their pursuit for more speed, worrying too much about adding more power, and too little about applying it.

Autotech can help you decide which drivetrain modifications are right for you. Whether you’re trying to improve your car’s highway cruising economy, or going for all-out performance, we will be your voice of reason through the entire process. Don’t let your car’s drivetrain hold you back. Supercar performance is only a shift away!

Today, thanks to Clutch Masters, increased holding pressure does not necessarily mean increased pedal pressure and the problems that can accompany it. By re-engineering the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leveragetm Technique, Clutch Masters has increased clamping power, often without changing pedal pressure.

Excessively increased pedal pressure, as found in many of today’s traditional high performance clutches, places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of today’s sport compact automobiles. Placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether. This failure can lead to catastrophic internal engine damage.

A clutch, simply put, is a friction device that disengages and engages the engine from the transmission to allow for transition from motionless to movement and for gear changes. For street applications a smooth transition of power is essential while still being able to transfer all the power of the engine to the transmission. As power output of engines increase and demands on clutches become greater – for example high performance street or racing cars – the holding and clamping capacity of a clutch also must increase. This is where Clutch Masters’ innovative engineering comes into play.

Clutch Masters also supply a wide range of lightweight flywheels for use with their clutch kits

Fidanza
WHY DO YOU OFFER BOTH STEEL AND LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM FLYWHEELS? – Our steel flywheels are designed to be some the strongest flywheels on the market. They are designed to be used where extreme strength is the issue and not increased performance. Some examples of this would be in rock crawling vehicles and sand rails. Our aluminum lightweight flywheels are also very strong and will give a tremendous boost in performance without affecting driveability.

Quarter Master Ind, USA
Quarter Master Ind design, manufactures and sells racing performance clutch kits lightweight flywheels and driveline components for all types of racing applications from top NASCAR teams to the weekend warrior It is known for Its excellent customer service and technical support as well as its make to order capabilities

Par Engineering – Australia
PAR design and manufacture flywheels our of billet chromoly, high tensile steel. All flywheels are specifically designed and calculated with a reduced weight to maintain optimum torque and an increased throttle response. The flywheels are also designed with maximum structural stability to accommodate large clamping forces produced from performance pressure plates. The flywheels also possess great heat transfer characteristics to minimise clutch face heat. From our experience, these characteristics cannot be achieved by the lightest flywheels – this is why our flywheels are not made to be the lightest, but to a calculated weight.
