This Fidanza flywheel weighs 7.5 lbs making it the lightest 2ZZ flywheel available. You can expect a noticeable improvement in acceleration especially in the lower gears and heel-toe downshifting is much easier thanks to much livelier throttle response. Slightly more throttle is needed to pull away from a stop without stalling though most people get used to it and like the sportier feel.
Fidanza Flywheels are made using the highest quality and most modern materials available. The flywheel is made from either 6061 T6 aluminum. The friction surface is very special. Fidanza uses a 1050 high carbon, alloy steel. It is incredibly durable allowing the use of just about any clutch disc material available from organic to Kevlar and even sintered iron.
Fidanza attaches the friction surface using aerospace nuts and bolts. These are some of the best fasteners money can buy. They choose them because of the incredible shear strength and resistance to corrosion.
All Fidanza ring gears are heat treated for durability. They are heated, pressed on and then secured using grade 10 fasteners.

One of the best lightweight flywheels money can buy,
Not to mention you can swap out the friction plates.
Ive had this flywheel for a while and i love it!

I’ve got this flywheel in my 2003 Matrix XrS.
Accelerator pedal is much more responsive & lighter feeling. The revs drop much much faster. So, shifting is forced to be much quicker- sometimes you can’t shift fast enough. I had to learn to rev-match & double-clutching so I could shift more slowly for the synchros.

First off, I like that you can just change the surface. So when it’s time for me to change my clutch again, I will buy a new friction surface one time.
The car revs very quickly and sounds very sporty. But like the other reviewers, the revs drop quickly, so I find myself dropping out of “lift” on gear changes. I’m sure with some more practice I’ll be able to get my shiftiing done quicker.
I highly recommend purchasing the ARP flywheel bolts the same time!

Beautiful build quality. Takes some getting used to but we’ll worth it. Quicker rev up and down.

I put this flywheel in my 2001 Celica when I swapped my 1zz for the 2zz. It’s effortless down shifting makes tossing the gears around the best part of my morning drives. Dont worry about that chopping noise. Everyone from daily drivers to time attackers should invest in this flywheel.
