- Great (steel) product but not the lightest
I'm rating the apparent quality of the product as 5 stars: the eBay flywheel that I am replacing I would also rate at 5 stars since I never had an issue with it and it was only $280 when I bought it. I would really like a 6.5 pound flywheel. I have to say that I am disappointed with myself for only saving $65 for 8.4 pounds when I could have just spent the extra money to get the 7.9 pound Fidanza flywheel (with replaceable facing). The smartest thing for me to have done would have been to further lighten my current 9.1 pound steel flywheel which would have cost around $280: I was looking for the lightest flywheel I could afford, and since my current flywheel is 9.1 pounds, I just spent over $350 to shave off only 0.7 pounds.
Note: we chose this weight for a good compromise between driveabiltiy and response. Lightening an existing flywheel can be problematic, as the penalty for doing it incorrectly is high speed shrapnel cutting through the transmission tunnel. MiataStuff, we're sorry the weight was not to your liking.
