Stage 1 of the MED Verto Ultra Light steel clutch assemblies. This package utilises the solid turbo-spec clutch plate, which is ideally suited to fast road use. Fully assembled and dynamically balanced.

The MED Verto flywheel is CNC turned from EN8 steel billet, after which we profile mill large slots through the flywheel on the outer edge for extra weight saving. 

Final machining is then carried out around the clutch cover mounting bosses and the pre-engaged ring gear is retained by six cap-head screws.

The flywheel weighs approximately 2kg less than the standard unit at just 3.55kg.

The Stage 1 kit is ideally suited to performance road cars and comes with the following components:

  • MED Ultra Light EN8 steel flywheel
  • Turbo-spec solid clutch plate
  • Heavy-duty clutch cover
  • MED steel clutch centre
  • Six cover bolts
  • Dynamic balance

Upgrade to the St2 Verto Ultra Light for a higher performance clutch plate.

See the Additional Information tab for further spec and recommendations.

Recommended usage

Upgrading to an MED steel flywheel not only saves weight, but also gives a more durable surface face on which to grip the clutch plate. The lighter the flywheel, the faster the engine will be able to increase/decrease RPM, making it more free-revving and responsive to throttle input. 

MED Verto Ultra Light is our preferred option for peformance road cars. The flywheel itself weighs approximately 2kg less than the standard type, while the later Verto clutch arm design gives an easier clutch pedal than the early diaphragm type. MED Verto flywheels are also suitable for light competition usage. 

This flywheel will suit all transverse A-Series engines (Mini/Metro) with a Verto clutch setup. Please note - this will not suit fuel-injected Rover Minis. See the MED SPi Flywheel or MED MPi Flywheel for these cars. 

Alternative options

If you prefer the original diaphragm type clutch setup, it is possible to retrofit a Verto-equipped Mini with an MED Heavy Duty Clutch Operating Kit. You will need to remove the slave cylinder mounting bracket and everything else is a direct swap. The advantage in swapping to the older design is reduced overall mass of the clutch/flywheel assembly - ideal for competition.
