Mini verto ultralight flywheel
FLYWHEEL VERTO LIGHTWEIGHT WHICH ALSO UPGRADES CLUTCH ALSO
For pre injection Verto clutch cars it is also designed to increase clamping pressure which affectively upgrades the actual performance of the verto which with the AP pressure GCK151AF exceeds all previous high clamping pressure including the turbo pressure Light steel outer section for Verto type assembly which Weighs approx 8.84.bs. Effects of lightening rotating engine components: (0.5 x n2 x r2 + R2) / R2 n = total gear ratio (gear ratio x diff ratio) r = radius of gyration R = Radius of wheel/tyre This formula gives what accelerative weight the engine sees of the car per lb. Radius of gyration of a transverse engine's flywheel is approx. 3.75" So to determine "weight loss" for a flywheel weight of say 18 lb to 10 lb, the engine would see an overall weight loss of the car to accelerate in first gear of: 3.33 = 1st gear of 4 synchro 'S' box 3.44 = diff ratio (0.5 x (3.33 x 3.34)2 x 3.752 + 9.52) / 9.52 = (0.5 x 131.2 x 14.06 + 90.25) / 90.25 = 1012.59 / 90.25 = 11.22 lbs So for every 1 lb removed from the flywheel, the engine sees 11.22 lbs less to accelerate off of the total car. Therefore by lightening the flywheel by 8 lb, the engine sees a total reduction of the cars accelerative weight of 89.68 lb.
