Reds Racing have a steel flywheel for the Quattro off-road clutch system available. The flywheel has been specifically developed to provide smoother acceleration out of the corner while improving handling on rough and loose conditions for more consistent lap times. Furthermore the flywheel slightly increases fuel mileage and it makes for a more consistent idle and thus easier carburettor tuning.
