    I have a ATB in my car, it's amazing! Gripper might be better, but it's probably a bit too full on from what I've witnessed from being a passenger in a friends vxr with one fitted, as low speeds it seems too grabby - ideal for a race car with high speeds though! If I were given the choice again, it would be the quaife every time.

    that's what I was wanting to hear mate. I'll see how the ATB performes on the track. if it's no good I'll pull it out and get a gripper in there instead.

    I've got the Quaife, engine dynamics light weight flywheel and the 3rd syncro being replaced. Should be back on Saturday so I'll post up in a week or so what they're like.
    Drove a 197 with a diff a few months ago the difference is night & day. Can't wait to get the car back.

    Good delivery! Also, that clutch looks like porn to me...Very good quality. Is it an on-off feeling or is it drivable?

    I've had the engine dynamics one in for a week now and I love it! It was a bit tricky to get used to for the first couple of days as I had the clutch replaced too.
    Imo this mod is not rated highly enough. The car is noticeably more responsive and has had a larger impact on response than the sprintbooster, 64mm throttle body or the V6 airbox. In saying that I'm keeping those mods on the car :smile:

    I thought it might be great in the combination with the lightweight crank pulley. :jump1:

    TBH, don't know, been very occupied with work and have almost no time for these side projects (custom intake manifold and the lightened flywheel). I'm thinking of buying TTVR's flywheel but it's too heavy 8).
    I would like it to weigh <4kg but I will probably end buying it if I'm not done with my flywheel by the end of this year.

    Raptor, having purchased a lightweight flywheel and fully enjoying it did you ever design/sell the lightweight flywheels?

    Did anyone ever price up a TTV Lite (4.4kg)? Thats almost 2kg off and will not have aa obvious downsides. I commute in mine and do sit in traffic but fancy a lightweight flywheel this year.

    Yes,I was thinking about it and even got one used stock flywheel for comparison but never got the time to 3D scan it and make it (was talking to my friend that's a CNC specialist and he said it's was not profitable enough in such small batches with the material that I would like to use).

    Instead, we're still doing the lightweight crankshaft pulleys with the new material (24% stiffer and 18% lighter). The "old" ones were great - Ph2 should be awsome. :smiley: :smiley:
     
    papa and Doogle like this.
