High-speed turbo balancing machine turbo Technics introduced the VSR Mk3
"Core" balancing machine in 1999, following 15 years production of the
previous Mk2 machine. Within months, its clever design and many unique
features became the talking point of the turbocharger industry. Following worldwide
acclaim, and the only VSR (Vibration Sorting Rig) to meet full factory
approval by GARRETT, KKK (3K Borg Warner) and IHI, the machine soon became
regarded as the accepted "Industry standard" for all turbocharger repair businesses and aftermarket
re-manufacturers. For full details of our current range of balancing
machines, please visit http://www.turbotechnics.com

A common problem with the replacement flywheel's on LLV's has been the ring
gear welded off center to the plate. If this happens the starter teeth
will most likely grind with the new flywheel. If you don't want to
replace the flywheel a second time, check it before you install it.
Flywheel Hybrid Technology
Torotrak is a UK-based company that's developing a technology called a
flywheel hybrid. Instead of using a big, heavy battery to store energy, the
Torotrak system uses a spinning flywheel. It's simple and lightweight
compared to traditional electric hybrids, and it's even going to be used in
Formula One race cars. There's no word yet if any automakers are signing
up, but if it starts winning races you can bet they'll be all over it.
