Leading A-Series engine specialist since 1981
First developed by MED in the '90s, the latest X-Lite flywheel is CNC machined from EN24T steel to the lightest possible design, then nitrided for strength and durability.
We have paid close attention to reducing material from the outer diameter where it has the most effect, while further lightening around the central boss brings the mass down to an incredible 2.50kg.
The ribbed and pocketed rear clutch face helps to increase cooling ability for full competition usage.
Pre-engaged starter ring gear teeth are CNC machined into the flywheel itself to aid balance and reduce weight.
Although the X-Lite is well balanced by design, we would still recommend having the clutch assembly balanced.
You may find it beneficial to purchase a complete X-Lite flywheel kit, as this comes pre-assembled, centralised and balanced, ready to fit.
Please see the additional information tab for more detail.
X-Lite Steel Flywheel 2.50kg
X-Lite Alloy Backplate 0.74kg
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. The lightest possible clutch and flywheel setup is ideal for a competition car, whereas a road car will benefit from more flywheel mass to retain drivability in traffic.
The MED EN24T X-Lite is ideally suited to full competition usage - we would not recommend this flywheel for regular road usage.
This flywheel will suit all transverse A-Series engines (Mini/Metro) with a pre-Verto clutch setup. It is possible to convert from Verto to pre-Verto by purchasing the MED Heavy Duty Clutch Operating Kit. Please note - this will not suit fuel-injected Rover Minis. See the MED SPi Flywheel or MED MPi Flywheel for these cars.
