    Well I had planned on getting a 10lb chromoly flywheel next week while my tranny is off, but my dad doesnt think its a good idea... so make your choice, and tell me why... i'm at a 50-50 point right now, not sure what to do :( also if anybody HAS a lightened flywheel, could you tell a difference, do you like it? you know, just general input, would you reccomend it and whatnot. oh yea... this will be my daily driver and weekend warrior at the track if that helps, i also plan on running slicks.

    Why the hell should you NOT put on a lightened flywheel while the tranny is off? If you do it later when putting in a turbo, you may end up causing more work for yourself.

    from the way you've explained it to me and the fact that ive seen you race and have ridden with you while you race i would get it for the fact that it will help your launch cause you dont get any traction in first and most of second

    thats true... but im also getting some much better tires, and am going to practice non-stop on getting traction on my launch, flywheel or not. i can't stand every single person i race spanking my ass out of the hole... but then again i spank their ass everywhere after that lol

    Dude, if it's between the flywheel and a hondata, go with hondata! You're going turbo in the future so you'll need some good tuning, and that will be perfect.

    get the hondata! the flywheel does not even compare to what the hondata can do for your car.

    A lighter flywheel gains the rpms faster, but also drops faster. I would get hondata and tune the car. At least when you get the turbo, you can get good tuning, the flywheel can come later on. Tuning is what you need to not blow up, not a flywheel :)

    If it's between Hondata and flywheel, go Hondata. Otherwise go flywheel.

    Holy crap of course get those things instead of flywheel! And by the way, Hondata can work wonders for your car, even with bolt-ons. And when you go turbo, you'll definitely need it if you want to be reliable.

    if you are boosting, DON'T use that light of a flywheel.
