Default NEW STEEL VARIABLE WIEGHT QUICK CHANG FLYWHEEL FROM M2C RACING



M2C RACING is pleased to announce the release of our new steel adjustable
quick change flywheel kit for 34 and 32 mm dias.
this steel flywheel has been in testing for 3 months now by our test drivers
and most agree of 3 distinct features.
(1) more controlable power out of the corners
from pros to sportsman all agree that the vehicles are much easier to drive
due to the slightly slower spool up of the motor for the first 2 to 5 feet of
accelaration.
(2) less tire spin means better fuel milage.
We have reports of 1 1/2 to 2 minuites better fuel milage from some of the
test drivers that have actually did fuel runs.
this of course can change pitting stratagy and lead to much better lap times
in the qualifiers and mains.
(3) Less tire wear:
This is of course a big factor in long mains and on your pocket book as tires
are not cheap.
the kits will come ready to mount with the tools to make it easier for
maintenance and quick turn around testing to find the best setup.

We have also found that it makes a really big difference to the not so
talented drivers(like me) who don't have the throttle control that the
pro drivers do.
I personally have found that I have way too much motor and tend to lose
control out of the corners or just a little too much throttle causing the tires
to spin and loose a few tenths of a second letting the car settle down before
I can get back on the throttle.
This flywheel actually makes me look like I know what I am doing on the track. LOl:mrgreen:

BE ADVISED THAT MOTOR STRENGTH PLAYS A BIG ROLE IN FLYWHEEL
CHOICES.

Part no. m2c6085(34mm)
part no. m2c6057 (32mm)

Nice might have to try one of these. When will you modify the 808 shock bra to accommodate the xb9 towers. Would love to have one before my towers sans down.

Anybody testing it on the West Coast. I would love to hear their review of it. Espcially at places like Revelation Raceway(loamy and lose) and Thunder Alley( at time high bite, but get blown out after long events on the track).

We haven't tested it out West as yet, but we have been testing it up north where our test driver was running on some high bite surfaces and their reports
have been very favorable as well.

This flywheel performs as advertised. I've been running it for a while now. It definitely makes the power of my motor more tractable and linear. It just flat works.

Cool. My home track is REVelation and it a loose track and wanted to know with this assist with not having so much wheel spin. I might have to break down and buy it to try it out. Mostly everything I tried from you guys is top notch.

I have the original aluminum variable weight flywheel. Can I just get the new steel flywheel and everything else bolts up?
