Default Flywheel Q & A

I have a zoom 2 piece flywheel which is steel with an aluminum insert, after about 5k miles, the flywheel warped and glazed the clutch. I am looking to replace the flywheel with a steel or billet 1 piece. Any ideas who makes a lightweight 1 piece flywheel? Looking to spend $400 max. Thanks for the help

BTW its an 8 bolt crank, and 11 inch flywheel, not sure if I can use a 10.5 inch. MMR clutch is being installed.

I think you meant aluminum flywheel with a steel insert.
Anyway, Fidanza makes a decent lightweight flywheel, although it is similar in design to what you now have, aluminum with steel insert.
I haven't read any complaints about it and the steel insert is replaceable.
I don't think you'll find anything light weight that isn't aluminum.

I run the fidanza aluminum flywheel with a stock clutch, I don't have a ton of power or anything but I've beat the crap out of that thing and it hasn't warped or given me any problems for the 15k I have on it.
