No-one ever quotes inertias (which is what matters). If you can state the difference in inertia between these and the stock pulleys then that would be a very good thing. :thumright:

Pete, thanks. I think your view is slightly different to the mass market owning a Rx8 race car and wanting every last drop of what the engine is producing going to the rear wheels.

For the mass market knowing that these are lighter than stock, look better than stock and will have a lower inertia what ever that number will be, will be enough.

I'm more than happy for you to do the calculations for me and post up! The question then is what does this relate to in WHP gain?

I agree with you. And to make economically viable parts you have to target a wider audience.

I wasn't being entirely serious about the dry sump, and was surprised that quite a few people jumped on the idea! Perhaps they would jump off again if they knew it would likely cost upwards of £1500 to put the kit together....

The only practical way to find the inertia of these pulleys would be from CAD. If you have 3D models then it wouldn't be difficult at all. Finding the inertia of the stock pulleys would be more difficult. The truth is, it's a tiny percentage of the inertia of the engine. But it would still be interesting to know, given how many people say "I fitted the lightweight pulleys and it revs so much faster now....." BS!

It won't generate any whp gain. It will just mean the power you have has less inertia to overcome, exactly like reducing the weight of the car does. But it's the equivalent of losing quite a lot of weight, because of the gearing effect...

You're doing a great job of putting some nice UK products out there. So keep it up, and ignore me (I'm not making anything!)

I'm just constantly frustrated that in the country (the home of motorsport) we don't have a decent industry to mod the rotaries, like they do in Australia, New Zealand, and the US. I'd love to see the UK do it, and do it better than the rest.

(And sorry for the slight thread derail!)

Have spoken to Ben and he also thinks the water pump pulley is different, I'm up there this Saturday so will mount one to an R3 see how we get on.

No worries Pete,

I'm just trying to make honest sensible products at sensible prices, all our products are made here in the UK out of a small independent workshop in Norfolk so we are definitely supporting home engineering which is important to me.

Behind the scenes though we are developing higher end products such as aluminium side plates, just need to make sure our periferal engine works the way it should first before we develop it with aluminium side plates. We are busy and being a one sometimes two man show is difficult at times, time is limited as we all know.

Thanks everyone for your support on this club always top notch! :thumright: :thumright:

They look great I'd be more than interested if they fit the R3 or if you make them compatible

We are doing red, blue, black and plain mate.

If you get plain you can do what ever colours suits you but economically we cannot provide custom colours it would just be too expensive.

nice product and the first time I have seen a set that isn't underdriven. You're putting out some nice things that look well built so well done just stuff I already have upgraded. I'm interested to see what you're going to do next :thumleft:

For those wanting to buy this for the R3, unfortunately the R3 water pump pulley is different to that of the S1 so we will need to remodel for that kit
