Fidanza Aluminum Flywheel (LS1 / LS6)
LS1 / LS6 Fidanza Lightweight ALuminum Flywheel
Our aluminum flywheels are made from the highest quality 6061 T6aluminum.The material is fantastic for strength, heat dissipation and of course reduction in weight. The friction surface we use is anincredibly strong 1045 steel. The flywheel friction plates are milledto meet our high specifications. A Fidanza aluminum flywheel can matewith any type of clutch material, including organic, kevlar, ceramic, metallic and sintered iron. We attach the replaceable friction surfacewith military grade aerospace fasteners.With these replaceablefriction plates there is no need to replace the entire flywheel whenthe clutch or flywheel is at the end of it's life, saving time andmoney.
The ring gears we use are also made from 1050 steel and areheat treated for durability. The flywheel ring gears are heated thenpressed on and secured with grade 8 button screws. We were the firstto utilize a stepped dowel system in most of our flywheel applications. This doweling method ensures that once the pressureplate is installed the dowels cannot be removed because they becomelocked into place.
No chromemoly can compete with the awesome serviceability, strength andsuperior design of Fidanza's aluminum flywheels.If there was a better material out there, we would be using it.
