I was googling for the best deal on the AASCO 10lb LWFW, and came across this store. I think this might be the best deal out there on a new one.

Prices on the very light ones must be going down since less people want to use them. The 16 lbs flywheels seem to be what people want.

you do have to slip the clutch a bit to get the car going, more so than a regular clutch/flyweel, so clutch life will probably go down too. i figure ill get around 30k out of this clutch.

obviously ive made my decision, and i'm sticking with it. this is after countless hours of deliberation.

i want to see what it's like for myself.

Well, one more...

I'd go 15-16 pound too. If we had a larger engine or a lighter car a lighter flywheel would be great.

<-2900lbs, FWD

not so different from the honda guys with their 8lb'ers on their 1.8 motors.

FWD will help you too since you can spin the tire(s) much more easily. My Jetta VR6 was about 2800 and a lot of people ran 10 pound steel Autotech flywheels and loved them. That car had a lot better low end torque though too.

so will it go on an ATW or not? I didnt think that the AEB would use a different setup, but why doesnt the specs include ATW?

all b5 and b6 clutchs and flywheels for 1.8ts are the same. it will work.

Wouldn't this be almost impossible to DD?

It'd be like a flywheelless Porsche in comparison to stock wouldn't it?

ordered...I'll be the gineau pig on this one and see if the company is legit...I'll let you guys know when I get it, I know AASCO is a good brand, lets hope the company is reputable...its funny they say S&H is free, but they have to tag on the $2.50 just b/c

You get used to it quickly. I don't think it's as bad as people make it out to be.

One thing you need to remember...most of the people who post stating LWFW's are horrible to drive, etc probably haven't actually driven a car with one.

Yeah AASCO is the largest flywheel company, they just make them in different weights for different shops. My last one was a 12 lbs, but now I am running a 16 lbs since a heavier flywheel is better for drag racing since it will retain more momentum during shifting. Lighter flywheels tend to be better for road racing so that the driver can control the rpms better.

Is your 16lb fly an aasco as well? The audi mechanics I'm friends with are giving me a lot of crap cause I want to use the stock DM fly with my setup again. They don't think it can handle the power for any length of time. What are your thoughts on power limits with the oem DM fly Mike?

It is from Spec but my guess is that it is from Aasco seeing that most of the flywheels are. Here is a picture of it on 034's web site, only difference between it and the last Aasco I had is that the one from 034 is Billet Steel and my last one was Billet Aluminum.
