DESCRIPTION

EXEDY Racing Flywheels are made from solid one piece billet chromoly steel forgings. They are specifically designed to reduce weight and inertia for better engine response. Most incorporate special design features to enhance air flow to improve the cooling of the clutch. The ring gear teeth are milled onto the flywheel unlike an aluminum flywheel where the ring gear is pressed onto the flywheel and have the possibility of separating from the flywheel. Fits all 2.0 liter, 5speed and 6speed. 13 pounds!

EXEDY Lightweight Racing Miata MX5 Flywheel

After an hour of driving with the Exedy 13lb flywheel, I can definitely feel the difference. It's slight, and the engine difference isn't as extreme as a 7lb flywheel, but it feels fantastic. I went in for a clutch job when my throwout bearing started to go out, and decided to try upgrading my flywheel from stock, despite the mechanics offer to machine down any damage on the existing flywheel, and sprung $300~ for the Exedy 13lb. Getting the car back, it felt like driving a different clutch completely (Exedy stock clutch replacement, for those wondering).

The engine rev's up and down more quickly, and it is noticeable if you focus on it, especially while shifting and out of gear. As such, I've found it to be a bit more of a challenging drive, as I need to be much more conscientious of how heavy my foot is on the gas pedal to accurately engine match to my clutch and speed. While on the freeway, the car still retained its power band above 3,500 RPM's, but it felt much less like the car was trying to sling itself forward, and more like the car was allowing itself to fall forward (if that makes sense), gaining speed because that's what it was meant to do, rather than what I want it to do. It feels as if the car needs less effort to push itself into high RPM's, though the difference while in gear and at speed is much more subtle than free-spinning the engine in neutral or while changing gear.

Is the performance difference worth $300? Only you can answer that question. If you have a few hundred dollars to burn and want to perform better than stock, but not burn the clutch out with a rally-car or sport flywheel (looking at the Flyin' Miata 7lb) while daily driving, this is a good choice. If you're working on a car exclusively for track and race day, the FM might be a better fit. After an hour of driving, the engine feels more effortless than it previously did, and I am noticing marginal performance improvements, however the tradeoff is more stress on the clutch when I can't accurately engine match, which makes the car slightly more challenging to drive and less beginner friendly.

Happy driving

Great product, noticeable difference in revs up and also drop off between gears.

I have to say (my gut even told me so when I was ordering it at the time) that the Exedy Lightweight Racing Miata MX5 Flywheel was quite a disappointment. At 13 lbs I knew it was only 3.5 lbs lighter than stock, but the only other GWR offering is a 7.5 lbs flywheel which didnt seem very street driving friendly. I really wanted a 10-11 pounder, but they dont carry one.

For any other NC owner out there, at $300 I'd certainly pass on the 13 pounder. It's a pretty negligible perfmormance and/or driving difference :(

Hey Ben I'm sorry the flywheel does not meet your expectations. Don't forget that if you are unsure what part to get, you can always call or email us and discuss your options. The 13lb flywheel only makes a marginal impact in driving feel, however, there are still benefits to reducing flywheel weight. Keep in mind there are also downsides to the super light flywheel choices.
