Ok I hope I get this right. The difference between the two is mainly weight, the steel one is heavier and helps by giving less wheel spin and a more controllable feel off the line and through bumps and ruts. That is the theory, hope this helps :) .

no disrespect Marian, but Esteban is right. the fact that it is heaver only means that it takes longer to increase rpms and that's why its smother, just a little bit less aggressive. the only thing that determines at what rpm the clutch opens is the weight of the shoes and the springs. so the steel flywheel will open later but at the same rpm as the aluminum because it takes more power to turn steel.

Marian Miller (aka TankGyrl), the weight or material of the flywheel has absolutely NOTHING to do with how the clutch shoes engage! The engagement point is determined by the diameter of the clutch SPRINGS and the weight of the SHOES, and nothing else. A heavier flywheel takes more energy for the engine to spin than a lighter flywheel, and will smooth out the bottom end hit compared to the same engine with a lighter flywheel. Why would EVERY clutch manufacturer, (Ascendancy, Werks, M2C, etc), sta[More…]

I was talking to an engine expert and he said that the steel is superior on a buggy with a high power engine to help reduce wheel spin and add control. On a truggy he said it could go either way depending on the driver, track conditions and engine combo. I am going with it on my race buggy.

Esteban I didn't say it wasn't smoother dummy , I said it opens the clutch faster , that's a fact when dealing with centrifugal force sorry if I'm a woman who knows what she's talking about !! A lighter weighed flywheel is "OBVIOUSLY" going to take more rpm to open & stay engaged smart guy .
