Smile How Good is B-specs Aluminum Flywheel...opinions wanted

I have been on the hunt for some time now for a good quality flywheel. I had one lined up with MRT but that fell through...I checked out B-specs flywheel and am very interested but I am not very familir with this company or its products. Are they top notch or what? And Will I regret ordering their Flywheel? Let me know your honest opinions please....

Thanks in advance
Rubasu

I bought a flywheel from them it looks like is good quality. When I had it balanced The guy at the shop said it look like it was good quality. I have had it for about 3000mi with no problems.

why did you have to have it balanced? did you do the whole engine? aren't the engines internally balanced? or is it external and they measure the imbalance of the stocker and xfer it to the new one or did you just have the clutch, p-plate, and flywheel balanced @ 0 together? thanks,
k

I have an aluminum flywheel from b-spec
and its rad..

sure it looks not so good.. but nobody is gonna see it. and its performance that counts

its a 3 piece design which according to most race guys is really good.. and its 11lbs
it could easily be allot lighter if you shaved some of the aluminum off the back of it. since there was allot of extra..

all i know for sure is

1. 3 piece setup for harder friction compound which is really nice
2. super light (or could be...) 11lbs..
3. fits nicely

I had the pressure plate and the flywheel balanced separately. When they are made they have a +/- (window it can be in) when they are balanced. So I like it to be exact. The machine they have is so sensitive wind will disrupt it. The flywheel was a little of I think they only drilled five or so holes to balance it out. but the pressure plate was way off.
