    Default Lighter flywheel - possible with dual mass??

    Hi guys,

    I wonder if anyone knows the answer to this...

    I want to lighten my flywheel as I've heard this is a good modification. However, I've heard that with the dual mass flywheel, this is not possible, as the lighter single plate ones that everyone does will over extend the slave cylinder?

    Can anyone help, and correct me if I'm talking complete drivel ?

    Cheers guys

    Dave

    as far as i know, no-one produces a lightened flywheel for the 2.2...limited demand..The dual mass is for smoother running....it absorbs driveline vibrations..replacing it with a solid , even lightened one, may make the car drive harshly..

    I have seen the courtenay version for the 2.2, but I fear that this is a different version to the vec c version?
