S54 SPRUNG FLYWHEEL
About the Project:
The benefits of a lightweight flywheel are mostly connected to the driving experience of a sports car. A lighter flywheel gives better feedback, quicker revving, easier revmatching and perhaps a little bit of horsepower through the first two gears. However every lightweight flywheel available for the S54 platform is a single piece unit, which is prone to the infamous "gearbox chatter" when in neutral. This is precisely why we are aiming to design a flywheel around the 7 to 8kg mark, which retains the sprung mechanism allowing it to dampen the gearbox chatter, while still giving lightweight performance, quicker revs and more enjoyable driving dynamics. Stay tuned!
