    i lightened a 2nd gen turbo eclipse flywheel by 1/4-1/3 and i hated it for cruising. good for rev matching. could chirp the tires at the top of 1st gear after. you're probably thinking about 50% lighter.

    you should lighten your flywheel, it makes a big diffrence in how fast you can rev & gives slightly better throttle response

    for drag racing it wont make a lot of difference, but for road racing or even just spirited driving a lighter flywheel is a great upgrade.

    if you go too light... like the 7lb race ones, drivability goes downhill, so i would stick with one like the ACT 11 lbs flywheel

    Nah, get the 11lb one. I believe mine is about 11lb, and I love it. I wouldn't want to go back to stock. I do agree that you don't want to go too light, unless it's only used for racing. GL!
