Toda Racing chromoly 1.8 lightweight flywheel

I have a 1993 converted to a 1.8 engine and installed the Toda LWFW with an ACT xtreme (street organic disc). So this comparison is from the stock 1.6, stock 1.6 clutch and stock 1.6 flywheel. It feels slightly quicker accelerating, but still hangs and doesn't spin down like a competition flywheel. I guess thats because the stock 1.6 to the toda weight is not much of a difference. But don't get me wrong, there is a noticable improvement. I chose chromoly over aluminum because it will be stronger and more resistant to heat for my high HP plans. I do not get a BUZZ during decceleration. I bought this from Adrenaline Racing.

If i had to do this over again, i'd buy something closer to 5-6 lbs for that quicker spin down. But take into note, you'll have to shift quicker too.

TODA Lightweight Chrome-Moly Flywheel

Excellent experience. At 9.9 lbs. (4.5 Kg), this flywheel is a little less than a pound heavier than most 1.8 aluminum flywheels available. I went with the TODA because the Chrom-moly steel alloy is stronger that aluminum, and will hopefully hold up better to later mods.

The driving experience is fantastic as compared to the other N/A/ mods I have done. Finally, a modification I can actually feel while driving! Not only does it wind-up faster, but the car seems to be perkier (more pull) in higher gears too. Also, I have NO BUZZ on decelleration as reported by most of the aluminum flywheel users. Maybe the solid flyweel balances better? Although I bought this from TODA Racing directly, I later found I could have gotten it through Adrenaline Racing for less (FYI). Doh!
