Lightened Flywheel suppliers


Advice please re lightened flywheel suppliers as I'm struggling to get a price out of TTV, having sent 2 enquiries via their web site and telephoned them. Is this normal service?
I have found another supplier - RWD Motorsport in Colne Lancs - has anyone got any experience of their products?

I used TTV and spoke to them directly, it was some time ago !

maybe they don't start back until next week or maybe COVID in the camp ?

They were very good when I dealt with them.

Speak to Ben Crisp @ TTV,   Thumb Up

DO NOT even think about using Turbosport though - Ranting Censored Curse unless you enjoy going through the small claims court.

If you have an existing flywheel, why not take it a good machine shop and get them to take off some metal.  I did this some years ago on a X/F and a Vx 16v and they both worked fine afterwards.  There is always the chance that ,if not done properly, it could come apart at speed of course,......................

I'm guessing it's a X/flow based on the OP, in which case I would look to a steel version if your looking for any serious diet requirements as I've seen a lot of porosity in stock x/flow flywheels..... and considering where they operate in relation to your feet.

I've read a few horror stories of lightened cast mini flywheels / backplates exploding. As 7WOW states needs to be EN40B if getting seriously light!

TTV supplied mine direct to the engine builder, it's a 6 bolt 135 teeth, 3.8 kilo for a 7.5 inch clutch,  the engne builder charged me £286.56, including Vat.

Eventually got hold of TTV and now got a replica of Taz's flywheel. Looking forward to meeting it back up with quite close ratio box. Should be a bit livelier

Give Stuart Cresswell a call at Premier Power, I'm sure he'll be able to help
