Aluminium Flywheel

Postby Panther » Tue Jan 17, 2006 7:54 am

Just a little info
fitted a fidanza to our shop C5, shudderd its butt off till I had done 2000ks, I was a couple of weeks short of pulling it out and fitting a Aussie clutch and flywheel, without a doubt the best set up around, except for the $1600 or so, good for 1000 HP
I will still change it over but now its not so urgent

So, was it the flywheel itself that was out of balance or something else?

Found a guy in Croydon (Sydney) fitting Aussie Clutches, nice clean shop, dyno, and some really nice cars on the floor, nice guy running the joint as well, I was impressed
