Tilton has been in the flywheel market since 1973, when Mac Tilton began manufacturing them using lightweight aluminum. As technology in racing advanced and the demand for stronger and lower inertia flywheels grew, Tilton began machining flywheels from billet steel. Today, Tilton flywheels are subjected to some of the most grueling racing conditions. They can be found on NASCAR Cup engines, Grand-Am DP cars competing in the 24 Hours of Daytona and most other forms of racing.
Tilton has engineered thousands of flywheels for racing and high performance applications. Those listed are our most popular; Tilton also produces flywheels for many specialty and historic car applications on a custom basis. Contact Tilton for further information on ordering custom flywheels.
