SMALL MASS FLYWHEEL TTV RACING
The lighter the flywheel the faster engine revs will rise and fall but you will lose momentum on a hill more quickly. The driver will often heel/ toe gear change and braking takes advantage of the greater responsiveness from the engine. Various weights of flywheel are available allowing you to get the best torque/free revving capabilities. The stock dual mass flywheel is approx (10.8kg)
This Single Mass Flywheel (SMF) is approx 5.9kg
A flywheel effectively stores the energy and helps the car resist changes in engine speed - good for cruising at a steady speed but not so good when you need a fast engine response. A dual mass flywheel(DMF) is also working against the driver when braking (especially when braking downhill).
