    so I'm talkin to some kid that pm'd me about bikes and shit, and he gets to talking about his aftermarket sprockets...

    [00:32] greyfades: lol
    [00:32] greyfades: what's your top end like now?
    [00:33] Mayday2100: I did almost stock tooth
    [00:33] Mayday2100: geared down just a hair
    [00:33] Mayday2100: figured it all w/ some calculator I found for it
    [00:33] Mayday2100: it pulls harder off the line
    [00:33] greyfades: do you have a speedo corrector?
    [00:33] Mayday2100: but not a whole lot
    [00:33] Mayday2100: cause it's almost the same gear
    [00:33] Mayday2100: nope... :0
    [00:33] greyfades: suxxors
    [00:34] Mayday2100: main difference is ALOT less spinning mass
    [00:34] Mayday2100: weight is alot less
    [00:34] Mayday2100: so alot more pickup
    [00:34] greyfades: well, in theory....
    [00:34] Mayday2100: faster responce
    [00:34] greyfades: the weight alone isn't going to make THAT much of a difference
    [00:34] greyfades: same principal as a lightweight flywheel
    [00:34] Mayday2100: that is the most noticeable thing
    [00:35] Mayday2100: lightweight flywheel makes a big ass difference
    [00:35] greyfades: nah, the thing that's making the difference that you're feeling is the different gearing
    [00:35] Mayday2100: it was difference between night and day on my silvia
    [00:35] greyfades: power-wise and e/t wise they dont make much
    [00:35] greyfades: it'll rev up quicker
    [00:35] greyfades: but thats not gonna help you
    [00:35] greyfades: just like a 'lightened' crank pulley isn't going to do dick
    [00:36] greyfades: the engine is still spinning at a given amount of rpm's
    [00:36] Mayday2100: it does when your inbetween gears
    [00:36] Mayday2100: and makes double clutch more effective
    [00:36] greyfades: you're joking, right?
    [00:36] Mayday2100: nope
    [00:36] Mayday2100: I woudln't of believed it either
    [00:36] greyfades: no no no
    [00:36] Mayday2100: I got a good price on a new flywheel and was like fuck it
    [00:36] greyfades: you're telling me you double clutched your silvia?
    [00:37] Mayday2100: only cuase my fucking tires sucked as
    [00:37] greyfades: ....
    [00:37] Mayday2100: and the real reason for double clutch was to try to get traction back :)
    [00:37] Mayday2100: not what it's normally used for
    [00:37] greyfades: um....
    [00:37] Mayday2100: btw you know anyone w/ a silvia or anyone who wants any parts
