one of the best Simple performance mods available for the rx
A light flywheel is one of the best simple performance mods you can make to an
NA RX8. The rotary engine makes its top power at the top of the rev
range. The faster you get to the top of the rev range the faster you get
to your power. And that’s where a light flywheel shines!
Bogging down on standing launches? Well a light flywheel should cure
those problems too. The standard flywheel is nearly 17 pounds, whereas
the new Pettit Cromoly flywheel is a shade over 11 (at 11.33 pounds,
slightly lighter than the Racing Beat, and also stronger than aluminium
The Pettit Cromoly flywheel comes complete with the required counterweight.
A simple mod that makes a surprisingly big difference. Combine
it with the Pettit ANP “All Natural Power” package for the
ultimate NA RX8 performance pack.
Driveline install tip: If your clutch is worn, why not add a flywheel at
the same time, as the labour cost will be minimal as they located in the
same housing. OR if you are putting in a new flywheel why not upgrade
your clutch while the work is being done?
NB. A lightflywheel will only mate to a 230 model clutch assembly. Therefore to fit a flywheel to a 192 model RX8, clutch modifications will also be necassary.
Our Flywheel also fits the RX7, but please note that it requires an RX7 specific counterweight.
The driveline range
Also part of the driveline range is the Pettit Racing Rally Clutch, which enables superior clutch engagement and life. Visit the Pettit Racing Rally Clutch page for further details.
