By reducing the weight of the flywheel over the standard Pinto item to as little as a half, the resulting reduced inertia gives better acceleration, especially in the lower gears. In addition, the reduced weight at the flywheel edges allows quicker gear changes, and increased engine braking. Comes with integral starter ring (ring gear is machined into the flywheel).

Suitable for use with
RS2000 Type Bellhousing (cable clutch)
Sierra Direct Replacement Cable Clutch Bellhousing
Sierra Direct Replacement Hydraulic Clutch Bellhousing
Pinto or Cosworth to Borg Warner T5 Bellhousing *

Great craftmanship

The flywheel is so beautiful that I 'm considering to hang it in my living room as decoration.

Nice NC work with integral ring gear

Would have got 5 stars but has light grinding 'touch' marks on clutch face that wont interfere with function.
