  • Lightweight flywheel landed today...

    Here is it, hot off the production line, brand new billet lightened flywheels for the Corsa VXR.





    Weighing in at just under 6.5Kg.

    The reduced mass allows the engine to rev faster, improving acceleration and reducing the stress ontn he engine/trans components.

    The price of the flywheel is £245 + fitting

    As I'm sure you all know, the Corsa VXR shares the M32 6 speed transmission with the Astra VXR. Quaife have a diff for this application which we can also supply for £611 + bearings + fitting.

            How does it affect the torque though? I thought the reduced inertia could have a negative impact on the drive?

                      The standard item is in the region of 14Kg

                      Fitting is a gearbox out job, so it will be £330 inc vat for the removal and refitting of the gearbox.

                      We're ining up-rated clutch kis for the application up right now.

                          pm'd you yesterday George

                          Right we have a clutch in for a (dare I say it) VW application. It's made by the people that we are having some clutches for the Astra and Corsa made up for.

                          here's a bit of a tease



                          They do a huge range of materials. We will soon be abe to offer these in a number of stages for the Corsa and Astra VXR. they offer some really trick setups, with mixtures of compounds, sinter metal againt he flywheel and organic against the pressure plate, so good flywheel take-up but a nice bite on the pedal!

                              Does this lightened flywheel have a detrimental effect on the torque or the car??? If so i dont think it would be a good idea as this is one of the attrations of the corsa, the low down torque/pull.
