clutch and light weight flywheel


Recommended Posts

However if you are looking to launch the car, say for drag racing, it will work against you. The lightweight flywheel will lose it's momentum (sp?) when you drop the clutch.


not quite... the rpms that you'd be revving to on the launch would help the lightweight gain a ton of inertia to help you take off. Plus in drag racing (any kind of racing really....), shock load is what kills parts. so heavier rotating assy. = more inertia. more inertia = more shock load, which could just make you spin the wheels upon green, or break stuff.


plus IF it would help you on launch, it would RAPE you while shifting... ten minutes in between shifts to drop revvs would kill 1/4 mile times.
