If you need to upgrade or replace your current flywheels, then you’ve come to the right place. An often overlooked, but vital engine component is the flywheel. It balances the weight of the engine to ensure a smooth ride. More importantly, the flywheel connects the engine with the transmission. An expertly designed flywheel should last you a lifetime. However, sometimes problems can occur.
Common Flywheel Problems
Flywheels are extremely durable products. It is rare that your flywheel will ever crack or chip on its own. Most flywheel problems occur because of contamination. If a crankshaft or transmission shaft seal begins to leak, the oil will often end up on the flywheel. This leads to excessive friction which then results in flywheel warping. If you feel a strange vibration during engagement and acceleration, then it may be time for a new flywheel.
Which Flywheel should I choose?
At TDP, we offer stock flywheels and a billet chromoly lightweight flywheel. The billet chromoly flywheel is significantly lighter and better for high-end performance driving. However, it may not be the best option for your car. Depending on your vehicle’s make and model and your driving habits will determine which flywheel you should go with.
