      Look man. I gave solid input to your thread. You however dismiss the opinions of others in the thread. And in doing so you use this and your words as a way to downpress your fellow man so that you feel smart and on top of things. I'm not a thread jacker, I haven't a clue what that is. I think Eurospec Sport products are great. I have used them in the past and still do. I even have one of their transmissions in my racer and have great confidence in it.

      So your solid input is that you disagree. WHAT A CONTRIBUTION. Address the actual issues, or leave.

      Obviously you have no idea what a thread jacker is. Look in a mirror much? a thread jacker uses other peoples threads to perpetuate some stupid notion of their own importance. Youre probably one of the dick heads from Eurospec sport who refuse to answer for their ****ty engineering, trying to head off any negative opinions about their products so the public puts that company where it belongs- in the dust heap of "tuning firms" which have been relegated to memory. HAVENT YOU READ THE PREVIOUS POSTS? CAN YOU ANSWER ANY OF THE PREVIOUS ISSUES? NO? THATS BECAUSE YOU DIDNT READ THE THREAD, YOURE JUST REACTING TO SOMETHING YOU DONT LIKE. move on.

      This thread is a resource for those who wish not to be ripped off by eurospec sport's ****ty chinese cast nodular steel flywheels. NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR STUPID RACE CAR.

      this thread is in reference to 020 style flywheels. Your pointless post is totally irrelevant to this thread.

      Your "solid" input is avoiding the main issues. Nice try.

      downpress isn't a word. look it up.

      Yeah, I'm stalking you. I envy your many achievements and certifications, that's all. I just wish you'd be more open in letting others know about them. You're too humble though.

      It's got nothing to do with the fact that I visit the Manual Trans forum often looking for 020 threads or the fact this thread, which is unusually active and large for this forum, has been staying at the top of the forum for some time.
      Nope.

      Dude, don't tell anyone that I don't know what I'm doing.... I've got everyone fooled into thinking that I know something about the 020 trans.... you're going to blow my cover
      I was just here in the forum looking for 020 threads to help people out who had questions, but with fake advice because {secret}I don't know what I'm doing{/secret}

      Actually, it looks more like people who don't agree with your professional and expert assessment being ridiculed for having an opposing viewpoint.
      You made a thread. You made a point. What do you want, a cookie?
      Desperate for attention much?

      Useful to JohnScholl if he doesn't waste any extra time on this nonsense... unlike myself who knew better than to click "View Post" but I did anyway... and now the parts washer is done with its cycle and I am going back to work.

      Again, how exactly did you contribute to this thread, other than acting like a troll?
      Oh that's right, you didn't.

      Broke, no one asked you for your stupid, smug opinion. Just because you rebuild one type of trans in your garage, and have convinced some people on the vortex that you're some sort of trans guru
      (with little professional credibility), doesn't mean anyone who matters thinks you are qualified.

      Broke and John Scholl are both good examples of common vortex dwellers: Broke is the "professional hobbyist", and Scholl is the "Opinionated Novice". Both have done an excellent job at demonstrating the "Intellectual landscape" that predominates on the vortex - either uninformed anecdotal "evidence" or condescending, arrogant Semi - professional clowns from Ohio who think they are the ****.

      Either way, neither of you have contributed anything useful, so leave.

      WHOA you don't know who you're talking to there ASE man. I went to school and learned all the same **** you did buddy. Then, instead of being a low-tech working a 9-5 at a shop i got into the high performance industry because i know how to tune an AEM series 2 ems. You, know how to use a caliper. Go **** yourself and your ASE's man. Not trying to be what you're saying I am, this jacker, but I put SPEC, and Eurospec Sport in everything from race to daily. The two pair very nicely. The only issue I have ever had is gear clatter due to the lack of dampening provided by a dual mass fw. But redline shockproof fixes it. I even stated that earlier. But your ego got in the way of reading your own thread rather than ****ting on people.

      Oh, just what my experience comes from dick head.

      Notice that none of the cars pictured are 020 equipped vws... nor was the issue the quality of SPEC Clutches.

      Since your'e obviously a very intelligent person, whats your excuse for ignoring all the points that have been made about Eurospec sport's ****ty products? I mean your pictures are nice and all but if your'e not affiliated with Eurospec sport, why defend them so hard? Prob because you got ONE GOOD FLYWHEEL OFF THEM THAT WASN'T EVEN A 020, SO WHAT? YOU WANT A COOKIE?
      THIS WASN'T YOUR THREAD TO HIJACK IN THE FIRST PLACE. These pictures could be pics of your cars, or your fathers, or your employers.it doesnt matter. Your ego is not on trial. However you have definitely attacked me personally,which is a direct reflection on your personality.

      The Quality of Eurospec sport flywheels for 020 is what the issue here is, not your exstensive lineup of cars. Again, you went to school? where? what degrees did you get? Are any of them in machine work? Its funny, because all i see in these Hi def pics is someone trying to prove how little they actually know, without actually discussing the issue.Both you and broke can go **** yourselves, since youre probably taking the weekend to opine endlessly about how great your ****ty chinese ripoff parts are.

      this is hilarious. Scholl misreads the title, and thinks im ****ting on Spec clutches. What a ****ing idiot. Read the first post you fu cking idiot! Im talking only about EUROSPEC SPORT flywheels, not spec clutches. Not to mention, that YOu dont have a 020! Next time read the post instead of acting like a fool. By the way why dont you address the points Ive made instead of attack me personally? because you havent read the og posts. Read the first post again, that is if your advanced level of
      "high end tuning" will allow you to read english. Btw,. Im a machinist, not some ******* with a credit card and a couple of friends with high dollar cars. the only thing youve proven with these photos is that you can point and click.

      But enough of your bull****, since this thread is about EUROSPEC SPORTS' CONTINUING (****TY) CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE AFTERMARKET.

      Other than them being cast, is there any other ways to identify it?

      Thanks!
      Well, the construction is one way. German and Spanish flywheels are constructed of cast ductile steel, which contains less than 5 %nickel and 15% carbon. Knockoffs are usually Chinese mined nodular cast steel, which is less dense, cheaper, expands more when heated, is more brittle than ductile steel, and machines with a horrible finish.

      The only real way to tell if the flywheel is a quality piece is if its machined from a billet (in which case it is actually worth the price retailers sell them for), or its an oem casting. all the others on the market are chinese manufactured, machined, and assembled. THEYRE GARBAGE.

      AGAIN, THIS POST IS ABOUT EURO SPEC SPORT, NOT EUROSPEC ACCESSORIES OR SPEC CLUTCHES. Apparently there's some confusion about that (john scholl etc.)

      Not to mention, if you dont have a 020, this thread doesn't apply to you so shut the F up.

      so your "solid input" is that you don't have a 020 trans with a eurospec sport flywheel. What Insight!

      If you had read the first post, youd realize Im not talking about spec clutches mr observant.
      Secondly, what does your contribution have to do with the subject of the thread???

      YOU DONT HAVE A 020! SHOCK PROOF HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING. I RUN REDLINE IN MY TRANS, YOU KNOB! JESUS YOU ****ING ILLITERATE CLOD! READ THE FIRST POST CAREFULLY , THAT IS IF YOU CAN READ.

      This is precisely who this thread is for. People need to know before they spend money on these ****ty parts.

      Since people like Scholl and broke are convinced that eurospec sport parts are great, they are obviously not the intended audience for this thread.

      Btw, you didn't learn any of the things i learned, I learned how to read, and reserve comment until i was sure about what i was talking about. Btw how the hell do you know about where or what i learned in school?

      You're not a machinist. you might be able to get a car running, and even tune a car, but can you build and machine the internal components of the engine to less than 0001 on an inch? Do you have a fully equipped machine shop that has 12 employees with over 100 cumulative years of experience,10 bachelors degrees, 2 masters degrees in engineering, and over 30 years in the automotive machine industry? You have a really nice camera though, and im sure you think that -posting some pictures bolsters your credibility, but it doesnt, John. None of your stupid put downs or pictures of exotic cars (which you don't own) addresses the issue of the thread: WHICH IS THE QUALITY OF EUROPORT SPEC PARTS.

      You're not a machinist. you might be able to get a car running, and even tune a car, but can you build and machine the internal components of the engine to less than 0001 on an inch? Do you have a fully equipped machine shop that has 12 employees with over 100 cumulative years of experience,10 bachelors degrees, 2 masters degrees in engineering, and over 30 years in the automotive machine industry? You have a really nice camera though, and im sure you think that -posting some pictures bolsters your credibility, but it doesnt, John. None of your stupid put downs or pictures of exotic cars (which you don't own) addresses the issue of the thread: WHICH IS THE QUALITY OF EUROPORT SPEC PARTS. Not Spec Clutches, and Not EUROSPORT LLC. parts, but EUROPSPORTSPEC FLYWHEELS FOR 020. duh!
