What type of flywheels are you guys running? Choices are slim on flywheels for Gen 3 and I am looking to get some made. Just don't know what would sell more?
Choices are:
A. 10.5" steel billet 130t
B. 11.0" steel billet 130t
C. 10.5" aluminum 143t
D. 11.0" aluminum 143t

All of the flywheels will be Made in USA, SFI rated and be priced less than what is currently available on the market since there is no way I can compete with Summit or Jegs.

You can vote twice and results will show after voting.
Thanks!

If someone is already making these, wondering what you would do to differentiate yourself in the market? I bought my new in box aluminum 10.5” flywheel off eBay for less than $150. Also got a steel 10.5” from SST if the aluminum one doesn’t work out.

I would be offering them at a lower price point, that is all. I need to get the flywheels for way less than retail and in doing so would pass the savings to anyone that would need one.

There is no way I can beat a $150 flywheel though, hopefully the ones on Ebay are of high quality.

I think 10.5 130 is going to be your best sellers , Steel or Alum.

edit it from Beast to best

Thanks! That is what I'm thinking as well 10.5 130t.
I have a billet steel flywheel currently and curious about the aluminum version. The steel works great though so why fix if not broken haha!

I was under the impression to use a quick time bell, you have to use an 10.5" flywheel/130 tooth. Maybe that's not the case? But either way I'd guess that's what others would be looking for based on that also. Then you can run a cheaper 10.5 gm clutch also. I have a billet aluminum for mine, based on it was the cheapest I could find. laugh2

I'm going to be producing 10.5" 130t steel flywheels exclusively. It is the much bigger market material wise so I'm not even going to bother with the added cost of aluminum flywheels.

All my flywheels will also be lightened so that I can differentiate myself from the stuff out there already. It will cost a little extra but will be a nice feature for road racers. A little quicker RPM's but with the strength and safety of billet steel

I agree, aluminum flywheels are a very small section of the market.

My flywheels are now available for purchase and aluminim versions are still available for special order. Regular weight flywheels are an option as well and a few bucks less than the lightened billet steel versions.

All steel flywheels are made of USA sourced A-36 mild carbon steel plate. Plate is used as it provides better strength than 1018 bar steel. Aluminum flywheels are constructed of all domestic 6061 T6 plate.

Every single flywheel will be SFI certified and Made in USA!

I am currently getting a batch made and will post up pics as soon as I get them!

Hey everyone,
Unfortunately my pricing may go up soon. The President has imposed a tariff on imported steel and aluminum.
www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/...luminum-imports

My manufacturer says this allows US mills to raise their prices. As of today, US mills have raised pricing $15.00 per part over the last two weeks.

Just wanted to be upfront if and when my pricing changes. Hopefully not too much. I haven't even sold any flywheels yet

My flywheels came in and they look awesome like works of art!
Here are the Mopar 10.5" 130t flywheels

Lightened billet steel roughly 20lbs. on the left and standard weight about 25lbs. on the right.


Aluminum Small block Mopar weighs roughly around 15lbs.

Hey ric3xrt!
The $205 price is for the LS engine flywheel only.
The Mopar flywheels are a bit more but at still a good price for now.

Those Flywheels look nice.

That price is for the standard weight G3 Hemi 10.5" 130t with a driver side starter location.

Yes these flywheels are very nice indeed! Thanks!

What's the difference between driver and passenger side starter location for the flywheels? I didn't know there was a difference.

On the driver side starter flywheel for the G3 Hemi the ring gear is located pretty much flush closest to the transmission. That is where the ridge for the ring gear is located as shown on the pic above.

On the passenger side starter flywheel for G3 Hemi the ring gear is located much closer to the block and uses a completely different wheel so you cannot just move the ring gear over as the ridge for the ring gear is located a few thousandths away from the crankshaft.

This is according to the manufacturer and I was not aware of that myself. Either way both versions will be priced the same.
