Billet Aluminum Flywheel.
Constructed from 6061-T6, the Ram billet aluminum flywheel weighs in at about half the weight of the stock factory flywheel (16lbs VS 32lbs), which translates into quicker response—faster acceleration and deceleration, as well as less wheel spin for quicker ET's.Blanchard-Ground.
To overcome clutch snatch and/or chatter and to provide minimal run-out, Ram flywheels are Blanchard-ground, for a proper friction surface. This also ensures the flywheel is perfectly parallel to the mounting flange. In addition, Ram counter-bores their flywheels for button-head cap screws that secure the starter gear ring to the flywheel.Protect Your Investment.
When replacing your clutch you have two options: resurfacing your stock flywheel, or getting a new flywheel. Most times, a new flywheel is a better choice than resurfacing, as the flywheel will dictate how well your clutch will perform, as well as how long it will last.SFI Certified.
