Hey just wondering if any1 has had there flywheel lightened , im considering getting this done , any idea of price.
I know suzuki sport japan has a lightened flywheel but if i could get 1 here or it lightened it would probly be less hassle.
So does any1 know if there are other companies making them , even for replacement oem.

The ignis that was modded in fast fours had its flywheel lightened.. but I can't remember if they said where it was done, but I think they shaved the factory one back rather than going aftermarket.

Also, the ignis flywheel was designed heavy because high compression engines require a lot of momentum to keep rolling. If you lighten the flywheel, your car will be easier to stall and you'll end up starting at the back of the grid. Also you may find rollback-burnouts are bit harder to do and you won't have as much uphill pulling power.

On the other hand, it will probably get you down a quarter mile quicker.

After taking what you said into consideration , a lightened flywheel would not suit my needs , as i regularly do a fair bit of driving on hills and would not want to compromise the pulling power, as well as the frustration and imbaraisment of stalling on the grid or at the traffic lights.

Every now and then when i've been doing some serious racing i've been adding octane booster , and am quite happly with the results , so i'll probly just keep doing that , until i can get around to going to chiptorque and inquiring about upgrading or reprograming my ecu for a bit more power.

Thanks man :D

Just to comment that, there isn't stuff like going up slope car feel no power or car stall easily. suzuki sports did a very gd R&D.

So you'd say the SuzukiSport one is OK on the road? I thought it was designed more for track use. I've never tried one, but I've had people tell me about them.

Don't worry people, i had been using it for 6mths. And i had been enjoying alot. I must stress that this is definately different from SKIMMING the flywheel. This is proper R&D by suzukisports. :D

Singapore is a city. I had been runnning around, going up and downslopes.( we had multi-storey car parks as high as 6 storey) NO WORRIES! :D
