Crank Walk Myth


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about replacing my stock fly with a lightweight flywheel and new clutch, but I also was thinking about the Unorthodox pulley kit for the 300. My friend said that if I do both of those upgrades not to replace the crank pulley becuase doing that and using a lightweight flywheel causes the GE, and the GTE to crank walk. Is this a myth or is this true, and why? Kinda wanna know before I find out the hard way.

Your friend is right. Either you replace your pulleys or flywheel...not both. Your crank is a balanced bottom end. Reducing weight on both ends would throw off the factory balance terribly. Yes, match revving would be quicker but the con's far out weigh the pro's...unless your car is seeing auto-x.

Honestly, for a daily driven car....a lightweight fly is a !Removed! to drive. Ask me how I know (gear lash). I'd save that money and invest in something that you'll really feel/enjoy.
